Appliances of every kind should not be used unless they are in sound condition, this is definitely the case for anything to do with gas.
Gas is an odour like no other as it has had a scent added to alert us and not ignore it, hence why it smells like rotten eggs.
It is quite important to ensure that maintenance checks are kept up to date and that only a professional gas fitter installer is the one to do the check ups as they tag all items according to the safety rules and regulations. When it comes to gas no DIY should come into action unless you have that licence next to your name.
If you suspect a gas leak what should you do?
- Switch off at the mains
- Contact a Professional Gas Fitter Installer
- Suffocate flames
- Check your mailbox
Switch off at the mains
As soon as you get a smell of rotten gas, best to switch off at the main gas box that should be situated outside. Time can be wasted by running around trying to source items in your home and if it’s underground best to leave it to the professionals.
