The open flame of a stove, BBQ or other gas appliances, or even the burning wick of a scented candle, could turn a perfectly normal day into a breaking news story.
The best way to keep yourself and the people under your care safe is to book a yearly gas safety inspection. Every single one of our plumbers is also a licensed gas fitter. We have the tools, qualifications and experience needed to assess your home or business for all signs of danger.
