Smell Something Suspicious?
If you believe you are smelling gas in your home, it’s vital that you take action immediately. Inhaling these toxins leads to major illnesses and it can even be fatal. It’s typical for gas to smell like old eggs or sulfur, so if you get a whiff of something nasty, this could be a big problem! Also, if you note any typical symptoms of gas exposure, such as nausea, dizziness, fatigue, or disorientation, this could mean you have a leak.
If you suspect the presence of gas, you should leave your home right away, then call emergency personnel, so the proper authorities can get to your house and turn off your gas. They’ll also be able to check your home and give you the go ahead when it is safe to re-enter.
