Safely Handling a Natural Gas Leak

by | May 15, 2018 | Protecting Your Investment | 0 comments

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. Follow these instructions:
