Some Essential Gas Safety Measures Tenants Should Embrace Having a safe and secured gas appliance is every home owner’s necessity. Needless to say, poor condition of gas pipework, faulty gas appliance, blocked chimneys and faulty gas fittings can all pose dangerous and life threatening. Therefore, it is crucial that your landlord carries out periodical gas safety measures annually by plumbing companies in London so as to check how safe your gas appliances are for use. Some vital gas safety checks include: ➢ Making sure that, the smokes of the chimney are vented out in the right way from the chimney. ➢ To ensure that the appliance is in great performing condition and burns the gas properly.
