The smell of sewage in the kitchen or bathroom is frequently the result of clogged drains or broken pipes. Smoke tests are used by our experts to identify persistent odors that won't go away on their own. When doing a smoke test, non-toxic smoke is pumped into the drain system and tracked through the pipework to determine if it emerges from a source other than the drain. It is a straightforward yet efficient technique for locating leaky pipes, damaged connections, or broken seals. The sewage smell within the house may be due to these fissures, which allow sewage waste to seep into the ground.

Even a hairline crack can be found by a smoke test, and a very little piping leak cannot be found by one of these tests. All of our personnel are qualified, outfitted, and knowledgeable about how to conduct a smoke test.

Sewer Smells

As a result of natural decomposition, sewer gases like methane and ammonia are produced in subterranean sewer systems. The sewage odour coming from your toilet or kitchen sink may be caused by these gases rising up through empty drain traps.


Water Leaks

Sulphates, which are used to cleanse water, are present in the water supply to your home. A rotten egg odour may result from the sulphates reacting with the sulphates in your water heater.


Pipe Blockages

Blockages in the drain pipes are a major reason why the drains smell in the house foul. If your toilet smells like sewage, clogged pipes may be to blame. The clogged pipes risk becoming entirely clogged if the issue is not fixed. Slow water drainage is a sign of blocked pipes.


Clogs in the drain and bacteria

Bacteria can be found in food, grease, hair, and other waste. These bacteria may build up in the pipes, particularly if they are obstructed. Get the shower drain checked for obstructions if you notice a scent.


Mould Formation

When there is a leak and water sits for a while, mould or mildew can start to grow inside the pipes. Even from behind a wall, you may be able to smell the mould's foul odour.


Plumbing Problems

Incorrect plumbing fittings can also contribute to sewer odour. A strong sewage odour in the bathroom might be caused by improper traps or vents fast accumulating mildew or bacteria.

The smells in your kitchen or bathroom might originate from a variety of places both within and outside the house. To do a complete survey and cleaning, you need professionals who have the necessary training.
