If your drains don’t smell so sweet, you’re not alone. It is a common problem, but one that can get out of hand quickly if not addressed!
A rotten egg or sewerage smell is a sure fire sign that you have an issue with your pipes and a strong sign that your drains need cleaning.
Most people don’t think about their drains until there is a clog that needs to be unblocked but by giving them some TLC you can reduce the risk of any smelly problems.
Drains start to smell because of a buildup of bacteria usually caused by a buildup of rotting substances clogging the drain such as food, hair and oil.
It’s quite simple; clean and de-clog them regularly!
It also helps to be conscious of not using your drains as a bin. The only things going down the drain should be water.
Cleaning your drains before they get clogged should keep them fresh.
However if you notice persistent odours that just won’t budge, it’s time to contact a professional to get to the root of the problem, as it may be a blockage or issue deeper down the pipe.
