Safely Handling a Natural Gas Leak

Safely Handling a Natural Gas Leak

In its pure state, natural gas has no distinct odor.  Gas companies add a chemical with a very distinct odor to alert you to the life-threatening possibility of a gas leak.

While Lifestyle Comfort Solutions is proud of its 24/7/365 commitment to its clients, DO NOT CALL LIFESTYLE COMFORT SOLUTIONS IF YOU SUSPECT LEAKING GAS.
