Starting into the DIY world can be a bit intimidating, but there are few precautions that will ease the intimidation of a project. Home improvements aside, it is a must to understand how to handle a serious problem that may arise in your house during a project or natural disaster.
Did you know that natural gas is odorless? This may seem confusing because you can smell the gas when turn on the stove. The power companies have added this unpleasant smell to natural gas to help alert homeowners of a leak. It’s a rather smart safety feature.
If you do smell gas, open up the windows and shut off the main supply valve. Do not activate any electrical equipment, including your phone. Leave the house and call the power company from your cell phone or a neighbor’s phone.
