Affordable sewer and water line replacement and repair
Ever wonder why there is bad odor coming from your drain? Well surprisingly it is a very common occurrence as there are 3 reasons as to why.
1.) Bacteria Buildup
The smell can be coming from a simple thing like bacteria or gunk buildup. The reason for it can be due to the things that go down your drain such as food, hair, and dirt. When those go down your drain there are chances of it getting stuck and from there the smell can flow up and out of your drain. It can lead to blockages so its usually a good sign to clean it out your pipes.
2.) Dry P-Trap
Another way is if you haven't used them recently, you might need to run the water and refill the P-trap to get rid of the drain smell. The drain lines have a goose-necked section pipe installed to block the sewer gas from wafting up through the drain. When the sink isn’t used, the water in the trap evaporates. Thus to prevent the P-Traps from drying out, run a tiny bit of water in each of your faucets every so often.
3.) Drain Trap
Usually there is a proper drain trap installed to block the smell from the sewer making it's way into your home, if you are installing a new bathtub or sink make sure to have a professional install a Drain Trap.
