Smelly Drains

Are you suffering with smelly drains?

Here at Evergreen Drainage Solutions, we quite often get calls about smelly drains in homes and offices. With the smell not only affecting one room, but in some cases the entire property. Smells coming from drains are quite common but they can be a sign that something maybe wrong as drains are designed to flush away water and waste. But what can cause smelly drains?

Trapped food & fat
Even if you take great care not to wash food down the drain, fragments can still slip by. If it doesn’t wash out, it may decompose within your pipes, causing a bad odour.  Disposing of fat or oil down your sink can also result in a significant build-up within your pipework, capturing waste and causing a smell.

Partial Blockages
Partial blockages can be caused by products such as wipes, rags and sanitary products being washed down the drain. A partial blockage from such products will also cause waste to build up and could become the source of an offensive smell.

Your drain pipes
Your drain pipes and accessories can also cause smells. Depending what they are made from, they can rust and absorb waste materials over time causing bad smells in homes and offices.

Missing vent pipes
 
Your drain pipes should be connected to a network of vent pipes.These bring fresh air in and allow waste water, gas and odour to escape. If you are missing or have blocked vents then several issues can develop, including smelly drains.
