Residential Sewer Odor Detection

Don’t Ignore Sewer Odors – Call (866) 701-5306

Let's face it, dealing with sewage problems stinks. After flushing waste out, it’s easy to put it out of mind. However, like your other plumbing functions, your sewer needs to be regularly maintained and serviced for optimum use. If you smell a strange sulfur odor, it can indicate trouble with your sewage. What you are smelling is hydrogen sulfide, which emerges from decaying matter. If you suspect plumbing issues in your home, you must contact American Leak Detection™.

Common causes of sewer odor in your home include:

  • A dry trap – If your drain line is not often used, it might dry out and break the trap seal.
  • Malfunctioning vent – If your plumbing vent system does not work properly, the sewer gasses may escape inside the home rather than above as they should.
  • Damaged drain line – If the drain line between the trap and the main sewer is damaged, water and sewage can leak out, causing toxic fumes.

Because sewage consists of volatile matter, it is imperative to detect the cause of any sewer odors in your home.
