Dealing with plumbing odors in your home?

If you have ever had those smells coming back up a plumbing drain, you know it is not a pleasant situation.  There are many thing that could be causing the issue.

No homeowner expects their plumbing fixtures to smell like roses, but you definitely don’t want your garbage disposal or bathtub to produce a noticeable, unpleasant smell either. Here’s what you need to know about plumbing odors – and how to fix them……

Between the toilet, the sink and the shower, your bathroom is full of pipes. Because this room is a high-traffic area, it’s normal for odors to arise. Noticing a smell coming from your bathtub or faucet drain? Don’t panic, it’s probably just the buildup of soap, shampoo and hair from daily use. An easy way to safely clean out your drains is by pouring one cup of dry baking soda and two cups of distilled vinegar down the hole. The combination of ingredients should produce a fizz. Complete the process by pouring two cups of boiling water down the drain to flush it out. You may have to repeat this remedy, depending on how strong the scent is. Check out the full story…

Many home remedies are out there to try and rid your home of any of those less than pleasant smells and also ways to trying to prevent them in the first place.
