Sewer Smell Detection

Find the cause of the smell in your home

A sewer smell in your home is one of the most annoying problems that can occur in your home. Not only does it have a major impact on the quality of life in your home, but it can also be bad for your health. A smell of sewage in the house often consists of harmful gases like methane and hydrogen sulfide. You can recognize the latter type of gas by the rotten egg smell it gives off.

Sewer smell in the house can have the following causes:

  • Blocked drain
  • Blocked sewer
  • Leakage
  • Faulty siphon
  • Damaged sewers

So detecting sewer odor in the home is not very easy, because it can different causes have. Stench from a bathroom drain, for example, can be caused by a problem in the sewer system, not necessarily the drain itself. Is your drainage system connected to a septic tank or an STP? Then the problem could lie in the decomposition by the bacteria in the tank. In short, detecting a sewer smell is not always easy.
