Blocked or Damaged Pipes
Blockages or leaks in your pipes can create unpleasant smells in your bathrooms or kitchens. These issues may be caused by rotting food or other materials that are trapped in the pipes. Contacting a plumber to perform routine maintenance and necessary repairs can help you deal with these unwanted smells and ensure the best possible indoor air quality for your home.
According to the National Weather Service, Jackson receives an average of about 54 inches of precipitation each year. After heavy rainfall, however, the amount of water in the sewer system can cause backups into your pipes that could create unpleasant odors from your drains. In some cases, upgrading your system can prevent these issues in the future.
Traps are u-shaped bends in drain pipes that are designed to hold water and prevent sewer gases from escaping upwards into your home. If the water dries out because of disuse or leaks away because of damage to these pipes, unpleasant odors can result. Enlisting the help of a local plumber can help you pinpoint the problem and resolve it quickly and effectively.
