You do not have to be an expert to know when something is rotten in your pipes. Trying to get the relentless odor out of the drains in your home is not as easy as it seems. We strongly suggest that you DO NOT EVER place hands, fingers, or arms in the drain. Do not use hangers, sticks, rods, nor any other object of plumbing torture in any of the drains. If it breaks off or there is something already lodged, you have just raised the situation goes from level 4 to level 10 quickly.
The average modern home has a garbage disposal. Lemon peel, ice cubes, and coffee grinds will get rid of the smell, but that is just a temporary fix. Most homes also have dishwasher, and they are notorious for bad smells. Not rinsing the dishes thoroughly is a major cause, however, build-up over time causes odors. If it is not authorized to go into the dishwasher according to the manufacturer’s instructions, it is a giant no go!
Drains for sinks and tubs seem as though they are made for something long and sturdy to go down the drain to push out the trouble. Those are methods just further trouble waiting to happen. This one is always the one that convinces people they can handle any plumbing truth: the shower has a wide drain and seems like an easy fix. There is a water level in the drain which is necessary for the proper function of the drain. Trying to diagnose the cause of the smell will always lead to a call to the plumber.
Much of the population feel it is a waste of money to call a plumber for something they see as a small job. The reality is that the safer bet is to pay the nominal charge to have a professional seek out the source of the smell and deal with it effectively. A professional plumber is as important to your pipes as a professional dentist is to your teeth.
