Have you ever been hit with a nasty smell when you walk into your bathroom or kitchen? Chances are, the culprit is your drain. Unpleasant smells from drains are frustrating and can be a sign of a more serious issue. Discount Drain Cleaning® shares the causes of these foul odors and how drain cleaning in Summerlin, NV, can help.

1. Drain Clogs

When water can’t flow smoothly through the pipes, it can become stagnant, causing bacteria, mold, and other organic matter to build up and produce a foul smell. You can fix a clogged drain with a plunger or by enlisting the help of a professional.

2. Dry P-trap

P-traps are curved pipes under your sinks and toilets that trap water to prevent sewer gas from entering your home. If these traps get dry, they can no longer function effectively, allowing foul odors to escape. To solve this problem, run water through the affected drain to refill the trap. If the unpleasant smell persists, seek drain cleaning services.

3. Sewer Line Problems

Pesky odors may indicate a problem with your sewer line. A broken or damaged sewer line can cause sewage to back up into your home, resulting in a strong and persistent odor. If you suspect this is the case, contact a professional plumber immediately to address the issue.

You don’t have to put up with the horrible smell from your drains. Once you experience this problem, don’t hesitate to contact Discount Drain Cleaning for a prompt fix. Contact us today to schedule an appointment.
