Sewer Odor Services
Why Does It Smell?
Nobody wants their house to smell like sewage, but pinpointing the cause of sewer odors isn’t always easy. There are several reasons your home or business might be experiencing sewer odor problems.
Let’s start at the most obvious place: the toilet. A toilet has a wax ring around the drain pipe, and the wax ring seals the pipe and keeps smells in. If the wax is wearing out, though, sewer smells will start to seep out into the room no matter how much you flush or clean the toilet.
You may also be experiencing sewer odors if there is a clog or backup in your toilet or plumbing, which can happen whether your property is connected to the main sewer system or if you use a septic tank.
A severe clog can prevent waste from flushing away, and a full septic tank will begin to back up into the building.
If the presence of sewage isn’t causing the smell, you might have a leak in a vent pipe. Your plumbing system uses vent pipes to let the air out of the system (usually on the roof) so waste can pass through freely without building up too much pressure. But if there’s a leak in the building, the pipe will need to be repaired or replaced.
How Do You Fix It?
The professionals at Rakeman Plumbing have a variety of methods for finding leaks and clogs.
For a clogged pipe, we’ll do a video inspection to find the clog so we can break it up and get it out of the way.
For a backed-up septic tank, it just needs to be pumped so it can work properly. And for leaky pipe vents, we’ll send smoke through vents so we have a visible trail to follow to the leak.
No matter the cause of your sewer odor problem, we’ll help you fix it. Located in Las Vegas, NV, we serve the surrounding cities as well, such as Henderson, Summerlin, and Enterprise.
