When it comes to the gas lines, you don’t want to play around with not knowing some important facts in order to keep you and your family safe. Natural gas has a “rotten egg” odor added to gas in order to warn of a leak in the line. Leaks are rare but can be extremely dangerous. If gas were to build up in an enclosed area, it can make people extremely sick or can cause an explosion. You want to make sure to take a preventative approach when dealing with gas lines. Have a licensed professional regularly inspect your gas lines as well as properly install any new ones.
Also be aware that gas leaks outside of the home are very dangerous too. Since most gas lines are located underground, make sure you have them marked by your local utilities before you begin any sort of digging.
