Written by Posted On Monday, 21 December 2015 17:59

The HomeSuite team was informed recently that there was a terrible natural gas leak within the San Fernando Valley. The gas leak was detected near Porter Ranch, at the Aliso Canyon Natural Gas Storage Facility.

The experts at HomeSuite have taken this news very seriously and are now doing their part to help tackle this severe problem. Continue reading to learn more about what they are doing to keep people stay safe from this dangerous natural gas leak.

Taking the Threat Seriously

Natural gas is a volatile combination of a variety of chemicals and compounds. Methane is a main ingredient in natural gas, making it highly flammable. The gas is also naturally colorless and odorless, making it difficult to detect on its own. However, natural gas providers include a special additive in their gas in order to give it that distinct rotten egg smell to alert you when a leak has occurred.

HomeSuite is taking this gas leak seriously, even though the LA County Health Department and SoCalGas have claimed that there aren't any adverse health effects to worry about from the leak. Also, residents in the area have been very concerned about their wellbeing, and several health problems amongst Porter Ranch residents have already been linked to the leak.

Helping People Relocate

HomeSuite has already received many calls from insurance adjusters, relocation experts, and brokers regarding the gas leak. They have also received many inquiries regarding relocating some of the Porter Ranch residents until the situation is resolved.

By providing these residents in need with turnkey, fully furnished houses to move into temporarily, they can rest assured that their safety will not be jeopardized by the natural gas in their home environment.

HomeSuite has already reached out to its large network of reliable landlords throughout the San Fernando Valley. They are working hard together to match available homes with the families in need, and have thus far helped four families relocate to Westwood, Woodland Hills, Pasadena, and Glendale.

The Problem Could Take Months to Fix

According to recent news, the natural gas leak that has already wreaked havoc throughout the San Fernando Valley could take months to fix. In the meantime, HomeSuite plans on continuing to work very hard to help the people who have been adversely impacted by this terrible accident.

Thus far, brokered HomeSuite homes have had at least three bedrooms and are within the $7,000-$9,000 per month price range. The average turnaround time to help a displaced family is only one to four days. Also, every house is completely furnished and move-in ready, with cable, Wi-Fi, gas, and electric all set up and ready to be used. These short-term rentals are helping families who need to get out of their homes for their own safety but can't afford to move permanently.


While everyone is hoping that the situation in the San Fernando Valley will indeed be resolved sooner rather than later, HomeSuite's experts and professionals will not rest until every family that needs and wants to be relocated has been helped.
