Odors Coming From Drains
There’s nothing more frustrating than foul odors invading your interior spaces as a homeowner. While there are many factors to consider when alleviating foul odors from your interior, it is vital to hire a septic service company for maintenance. At Septic Connection, we have a team of experienced and equipped experts who guarantee nothing short of excellence when it comes to helping you maintain your drainage system. A poorly maintained system leads to a myriad of other issues, which compromise the efficiency and effectiveness of your drains.
Professional septic tank pumping is an excellent way of preventing foul odors from making their way into your home. Still, there are several things you can do to mask bad smells before calling a septic service company. Here are several things you can do to figure out the problem before it gets out of hand.
Clean the Sink’s Overflow
The first step is to identify where the smell is coming from before taking the necessary steps to try and get rid of the smell. If your sink is the problem, you need to start with the overflow to see if it needs to be cleaned. There’s a hole beneath the faucet or across from it, which will likely get clogged, causing a foul odor to fill your interior. There are several ways to approach the sink’s overflow, but the easiest is cleaning it using a bleach solution and a small bottle brush. Once the buildup is cleared and cleaned, you can safely move from the issue, but if it persists, you need to onboard a professional, and that’s where we come in.
Clean the Drains
Many things find their way down the drain even though they aren’t supposed to, resulting in severe damage like clogs and foul odors. The buildup of such materials can lead to an unpleasant smell filling your indoor space once it begins to rot, which is not ideal. A common DIY solution used to clean drains and clear buildup is a solution of baking soda and vinegar that is poured and left to sit for a few minutes. This process can be repeated severally until you get rid of any foul smells lingering in your home. If this doesn’t work, it might be time you consider professional help from a reputable and reliable septic service company.
Look for Leaks
A leaking line is also a common cause of bad odors since it provides an escape for sewer smells in the septic tank to leak into your interior. The first step one needs to take is to try and detect any sign of a leak, including standing water, water damage on walls, drips, and many others. However, most leaks go undetected for long until they cause severe damage. You can save yourself the hefty cost of repairs and replacement by hiring a professional septic service provider for routine maintenance.
