Common Unpleasant Odors and What They Mean

Sewer odors are not only unpleasant, but also bring a slew of health hazards when not dealt with right away. Whether it’s from your kitchen, laundry room, or bathroom, unpleasant smells can indicate a bigger problem than just backed-up pipes. At Specialized Pipe Technologies, we can help you detect odors in your home and provide practicable solutions. Here are a few common unpleasant odors and what they mean.

Sewer Gas Smell in Your Bathroom

These smells can pop up anytime, turning your room into a smelly mess. The smell resembles gasoline and occurs due to issues like leaks or cracks. Bacteria growth in your drains or a damaged toilet wax ring can also cause a sewer gas smell in your bathroom. Rather than covering up the smell with aerosols, always schedule odor detection and let the professionals deal with the issue.

Sink Smelling Like Rotten Eggs

You may not realize it, but your sink trap always holds water. Located under your sink, the water in the p trap plays a crucial role in keeping gases from leaking into your home. But when the trap is empty, meaning you haven’t used the sink for a while, gases will start seeping into your room.

This makes your sink smell like rotten eggs. The trap is prone to accumulate soap scum and buildup of bacteria that can clog, producing foul smells. Schedule professional odor removal services right away to get rid of these unpleasant smells.

Moldy Smells

Typically, mold blooms on moisture, so if you notice moldy smells in your home, it’s likely because of a leak in your system. We suggest that you schedule leak and odor detection services to uncover the root of the problem.
