Gas leak? Adelaide Emergency Plumbing can be there within 1 hour MAX
As we know, gas is an effective and affordable substance for your home and office heating and cooking requirements, but there is a danger involved as gas is highly flammable.
Caution must always be taken when dealing with gas; appliances should always be installed or repaired by a licensed gas fitter, used in the correct manner, and maintained as per the manufacturers’ recommendations.
If you suspect a gas leak, always let the professionals deal with it. Leaking gas should be thought of as an emergency and needs to be tended to quickly.
