As winter creeps in and the weather gets colder, one of the things you need to think about is frozen water pipes.

When that happens, you have a significant problem on your hands. Listed below are some things you should consider doing to prevent frozen pipes
With cold weather around the corner, one of the biggest plumbing emergencies is a burst water or sewerage pipe. This problem causes severe damage to the property, furniture, and fixtures. It also puts ones home at high risk of such issues as the growth of mildew, contamination of food and water, and the growth of water-borne bacteria. Most pipe bursts happen during the winter season as the water freezes inside the pipes, which expands, creating immense pressure which then causes the pipes to burst. It only takes a small pipe leak to cause flooding mayhem at home, it is good to take proactive steps to prevent the catastrophe from happening.

What does a gas leak smell like? The scent is a common question when people detect the unusual odor and worry about its source. The truth is that in and of itself, natural gas is odorless. This efficient, colorless, safe-to-use gas is a non-renewable hydrocarbon that has a harmless gas added to it; this combined gas smells pungent. It is known as mercaptan or methanethiol, and its odor is like that of rotten eggs, rotting cabbages, or, more technically, hydrogen sulfide
