The exterminator pumped gas into the walls on both the first and second floors .

how can one pump gas into the wall ? does it make any sense ?

however, can you simplify this sentence ? basically keyword "into the wall " is a cumbersome Emotion: sad

i dont know how many people push gas into the wall ......or this is standard usage which means something else ?

Hi,

The exterminator pumped gas into the walls on both the first and second floors .

how can one pump gas into the wall ? does it make any sense ?

however, can you simplify this sentence ? basically keyword "into the wall " is a cumbersome

i dont know how many people push gas into the wall ......or this is standard usage which means something else ?

It's a matter of construction methods. Many walls are constructed with a space in between the two outer surfaces. The space often contains heating ducts, electrical wiring, insulation, etc. It's simple to pump gas into such walls.

Best wishes, Clive

how can one pump gas into the wall ? does it make any sense ? It makes sense if the walls are not solid. Look at this picture, for example.

however, can you simplify this sentence ? basically keyword "into the wall " is a cumbersome Emotion: sadI think the original sentence sounds fine.

i dont know how many people push gas into the wall ......or this is standard usage which means something else ? The word "push" doesn't work in this context. You need the word "pump".
