Meanwhile, here are some potential causes for sewer smells and what can be done about them.
Broken Sewer Line
If your sewer line needs to be repaired or replaced, it could be causing a sewer smell in your home. Other signs of a broken sewer line are soggy areas on your lawn, or if there’s a problem with one of the drain lines in your home, you can easily tell by wet spots or leaking sewer pipes. There are many causes for broken sewer lines, such as age, corrosion, or tree root intrusion. We have the experience and leading edge equipment to repair or replace a sewer line quickly, and with minimal disruption to your yard or property.
The repair must comply with the local accepted plumbing codes. Our plumbers understand that any break in a sewer or drain line must be treated as an emergency, and we respond to your call ASAP to make the repair and ensure that you have access to your sewage system. If you have a septic tank, sewage odors could mean that there’s something wrong with your pump or that the tank needs to be drained. This is another reason to schedule routine maintenance for any type of residential sewage system.
Backups and Drain Cleaning
If you have an older or heavily used drainage system in your Las Vegas home, it is a good idea to schedule routine drain cleanings to keep it in good working order. This can help prevent backups that cause bad odors. Bad clogs can put pressure on older pipes and cause leaks, which could cause a foul smell in your home.
