Natural gas has an odorless smell, but gas manufacturers usually mix it with a “rotten egg” smell with the intention of helping people to detect a gas leak easily. When you detect traces of such a smell, however insignificant it might be, it is important for you to keep your house ventilated to avoid inhaling the gas directly and to prevent any potential respiratory health issues.
One of the effective things to do is exiting the house immediately, but after making sure all the doors and windows are wide open. Furthermore, ensure you stub out any open flames and avoid plugging and unplugging any electrical appliances, including any light switches that may cause any potential sparks. Keep a considerable distance from the house when using your phone as well because even using a flashlight could torch the entire house. Any form of smoking should also be avoided until the plumber arrives to perform a thorough examination of the plumbing system.
