What do You do if You Believe You Have a Gas Leak in Denver?
If you smell rotten eggs in one room of your home or your entire home, you may have a gas leak which will require immediate attention. Upon detecting such an odor, immediately remove everyone from your home and quickly move to a safe distance away. An electric spark may ignite a possible explosion, remember to follow these tips:
- Do not turn on or turn off electrical switches, simply leave the structure immediately.
- Avoid using electric appliances such as garage door openers or telephones of any type.
- Do not start up or shut down motor vehicles or electrical equipment near the structure which the gas leak is in.
- Under no circumstance strike a match.
- Avoid all open flames or other ignition sources.
- Move to a safe distance away from the structure when the odor is outside.
- Call Xcel Energy at 1-800-895-2999 or 911 in an emergency.
- Stay away until Xcel Energy or the emergency responders have told you that it is safe to return to the home.
