Smelly Drains inside the Property
Again, the cause of the smell can be from several sources. Household appliances are one of the most common causes of drain smells. Washing machines in particular are the most common reason for smells inside the house. If washing machines aren’t cared for properly and treated periodically with specialist cleaning product supplied by, or recommended by, the manufacturer. Soap scum, fluff and hair can build up inside the machine, along with lime-scale, which if left can really create an unpleasant odour. You have probably had to clean some nasty black mould out of you detergent drawer on occasions, well that is soap scum, and it can occur throughout the water system and drainage piping if left untreated. Likewise, with soap scum and hair accumulated from showers, baths and washbasins. Traps, do periodically, need cleaning, especially shower traps, which catch hair daily.
Smelly Drains outside the Property
Smelly drains outside of the property can also have a number of causes. The smell could be an indication of debris lodging and rotting in the gullies, or of a blocked main drain or sewer. This could be due to debris, build up of grease and fat, or a broken drain or sewer. Usually smells like these cannot be solved by chemicals alone. The drains and gullies may require water-jetting, rodding, de-scaling, or repair.
