Why Odors Are Lingering around Your Sewer
Sewer lines are not generally thought of as fragrant. They carry all kinds of waste from our kitchens and our bathrooms away from our homes; however, the fact that they are far underground means that they are “out of smell” as well as out of sight and out of mind.
The problem is when the odors are somehow escaping from deep within the sewers. Usually this means that the pipes are overflowing, perhaps due to a leak or a blockage. As the wastewater is stirred by the rising elevation of the drain’s contents, this also further stirs up terrible odors. As these build up, they will eventually be emitted through manhole covers, vents, drains, and up through the pipes themselves. For those who are curious about how to eliminate sewer odor themselves, it is important to know that locating the source of the sewer smell can be difficult if not impossible for those who are not sewer specialists. That's why we recommend contacting an experienced odor detection service near you to help you solve the issue and get rid of the sewer odor.
Although the sewer line itself is typically one of the primary suspects when it comes to detecting unappealing odors, there are sometimes other locations where the smells might be emerging from as well.
Some of these sources could include:
- A problematic wax ring or faulty seal found at the toilet’s base
- Water traps from beneath the floor drain, due to the lack of use over an extended period of time
- A dried or cracked toilet trap when too much water has evaporated, usually if the homeowner is away and not using the toilet
- A missing clean-out plug used to stop sewer gas from coming in through the floor drain
