This week is Gas Safety week

Published: 16/09/2021 By Emma

This week marks National Gas Safety week which runs from 13-18 September. Gas safety week aims to raise awareness of gas safety and the importance of taking care of gas appliances.
Pedder understand the vital role that the regular checking of gas boilers and appliances play in ensuring that the gas is safe to use in the 1800 properties that we engage with across South East London.  
Research provided by Gas Safe suggests that up to 1 in 6 homes could have a dangerous gas appliance. In particular, people should take steps to ensure that ventilation around appliances should never be blocked.  A yellow flame or any signs of soot near the flame are often a sign of a problem and professional advice should be sought.
Landlords are reminded that Gas appliances need to be checked every year, a service we provide to our clients. Please speak to our property management team for more information.
