As every report of a gas leak is a potentially hazardous situation, we recommend you evacuate the premises and wait for our technician to arrive. Keep this in mind if you suspect a leak:
- Leave the premise immediately.
- Leave windows and doors as they are.
- Do not touch any electrical or light switches, doorbells, phones or anything that could cause a
spark such as any appliances or thermostats.
- Do not turn any electrical equipment on or off.
- Do not pull plugs from outlets.
- Extinguish any open flames such as lit candles.
- If you have a gas range or oven make sure the controls are turned off.
- Do not smoke or light matches.
