Gas Leak RI
The smell of natural gas should always be unsettling to a homeowner. It represents a significant and potentially lethal problem. Natural gas, itself, has no odor. It is the potentially dangerous nature of a natural gas leak that has prompted utility companies to add merchantman or other equally noxious compounds to the gas mixture. It is these compound that consumers actually smell. If you smell a gas leak our first and most important recommendation is to LEAVE your home and call your local gas company to come out to check the source of the leak. All gas companies have a hotline number for this type of emergency.
