One issue you may experience is a propane leak. While they are not common, they can happen and you want to be sure you are prepared. The following will help you understand how to identify a leak and what you should do to avoid a propane fire.
Identifying a Propane Leak Propane is known for having an incredibly potent smell, similar to that of rotten eggs or a dead animal. This is done on purpose. Propane is virtually odourless by nature, so manufacturers add the smell, making it easier for you and your family to identify a leak. Make sure that everyone in your home recognizes this smell so that they can take the necessary precautions.
