Sewer Odors (They’re Tough to Ignore)
Chances are that you are going to dial our number very soon after noticing sewer odors on your property or in your house. Sewer odors don’t really need an explanation, do they? But where do they come from?
There are a few reasons you may encounter sewer odors. It could be that you have a ruptured sewer line. If that’s the case, you’ll probably notice a very strong sewer odor out on your property. If you notice the sewer odor in a specific area of your home, you might have a dry p-trap under the sink that is allowing gas to come back up the drain.
Of course, you may also just need a good drain cleaning. That’s why it’s so important to work with a professional plumber like ours. Not only do we solve problems, but we diagnose them accurately to begin with.
