Sewer odors in your home or business can come from a number of different sources. The traps and vents in your plumbing system can allow unwanted smells to enter your establishment when they are clogged or malfunctioning. A malfunctioning vent or trap can cause further complications in your plumbing system by changing the pressure in your pipes and allowing vacuums to form in the drains.
Problems with your septic tank could also be to blame. A well-functioning septic tank should not be allowing sewer odors to escape. These abhorrent smells could be a symptom of a leaking or overflowing tank, which demands immediate attention to prevent health dangers and further damage to your tank and your property.
What Can Be Done?
Luckily, our experts at Rakeman Plumbing are well-versed in all these situations (and more). No matter how big the problem is, our capable and friendly staff is happy to fix it. A simple smoke test, where one of our plumbers plugs all the drain vents and sends smoke throughout your drain, can find the source of a leak in minutes. Anywhere the smoke is visible is a likely source of sewer odor emission.
Clogs in the plumbing system could also be to blame, and we are always glad to tackle them for you. Through careful assessment and maintenance by one of our technicians, your pipes can be as good as new and function the way they were intended. No more awful sewer odors! No clog is too tough, and no installation or repair is beyond our skills.
