Sometimes it’s neither. The smell of gas, or the additive utility companies add to natural gas services, is a pretty sure sign that you may have a gas leak in your Seattle area home. However, it is not the only sign. Area homeowners should be vigilant for other less noticeable clues. Some gas leaks are slow enough to go unnoticed posing a real safety risk to your family!
So, what is a gas leak? It may occur with natural gas, propane and even carbon monoxide. Gas leaks can happen both inside and outside of your home and pose a great danger to families, pets, and properties. For example, carbon monoxide is virtually undetectable without electronic detectors.
