# Sewer Odors
Unpleasant sewer odors can enter a home through drain pipes, indicating a problem that needs fixing. Common causes include debris buildup restricting flows, cracked pipes allowing gas leaks, or tree roots invading old lines. A plumber checks the P-trap under sinks and tubs first, ensuring it has enough water to form an airtight seal. Snake machines power-flush stubborn clogs. The main drain stack may need rodding from the roof vent down if partially blocked. Torn rubber seals, dry taps, or corroded pipes get replaced.

Clearing the source of blockage or repairing structural issues eliminates odors at their source from entering the home through the plumbing system. Deodorizing products are temporary fixes for sanitary systems needing professional drainage repairs or replacement.
