What to do if You Suspect a Propane Leak

August 29, 2018

Propane has an added odorant to help you smell it in case of a leak at your home or business. Propane smells like rotten eggs or a skunks spray. Gas leaks can be dangerous and should not be taken lightly. If you smell propane, take these steps:

What to do if You Suspect a Propane Leak

  • Have everyone evacuate the home or business.
  • Do not operate any appliances inside home or business (including phones and lights). These could create a spark.
  • Go to your propane tank and turn off the main shut off valve.
  • Contact Northwest Propane or 911 immediately. Do not go back into your home or business until its safe to do so.
