Commercial Gas Line Repair

Many business owners use natural gas since it is economical, efficient, safe, and readily available. While natural gas is generally safe, it is not without its risks. Over time, gas lines can wear and break, leading to dangerous gas leaks. In the worst-case scenario, gas leaks can lead to explosive, deadly fires, and even when they don't, they can still interrupt your business.

For these reasons and others, it's crucial to know your gas line repair options. Thankfully, Mr. Rooter Plumbing offers reliable commercial gas line repair services to get your business back up and running after a gas leak.

Carbon Monoxide Poisoning: The Biggest Threat from Broken Gas Lines

Gas Line Repair FAQs

How long does it take to fix a natural gas leak?

The time needed to fix a natural gas will depend on the leak’s location, its intensity, and the pipe material. When there is a gas leak at your business, the gas line repair service team will inform you of any complications.

Repair times are primarily influenced by the pipe’s location. A buried or wall-embedded pipe will take longer to repair than one running behind a stove.

Damage intensity is another major factor. Generally, severe leaks take longer to fix than minor leaks, though a minor leak in a difficult location can take longer to fix than an accessible bad leak. Major leaks may necessitate gas line replacement, while less severe leaks can usually be repaired.

How do you fix a broken natural gas line?

Professional plumbers should always handle broken gas lines. Mistakes made by an inexperienced repairman can harm you and your customers.

To repair a gas line, plumbers first turn off the gas supply to the home. This prevents the gas leak from worsening and mitigates fire and explosion risk. After the gas has been turned off, the plumber will assess the level of damage to the pipe.

Lastly, they will either repair or replace the broken piece of pipe. Repairs are often handled with epoxy putty that, once cured, is just as strong as a new gas line.
