Gas leaks occur for many reasons. Pipes imbedded in soil over long periods cause corrosion on the pipe, broken valve seals, and wore out appliance connectors are just a few reasons why gas leaks occur.

Once reported, the gas company will perform an inspection and if they detect a gas leak, they’ll immediately shut down the gas system to the property by red tagging the gas meter and placing a lock it.
Once the repairs are made, we normally call the SoCal Gas Company an hour prior to the repair being completed, as they are the only ones that can remove the lock and turn the gas back on to your home.
