Gas leaks are pretty scary. You can’t see them and they can persist for months before you even notice the strange sulfurous “rotten egg” smell.

If they do come to your home, the technician will make some assessment of your concern. If they determine a considerable liability, they will turn off your service at the meter and advise you to call a plumber.
