Protecting our home from sewer gas leaks, plumbing systems entering our home is absolutely important. Problem like this has its fair share of reasons. If you aren’t aware about the problems, here are a few you should be aware of.

- Due to Poor Condition of the Pipes – We all know that sewer system pipes are installed to protect our homes from exposure of human waste. However, broken, degraded or cracked pipes forces the odor enter.
- Due to Blocked Air Vents – Toxic gases are blocked from entering our home due to air vents. However, if the condition of the air vents are poor due to not able to block dirt and debris, then the sewer smell is bound to enter the house.
- Due to dry Plumbing System – Free movement of water in the sewer system keeps the bad smell to enter since it acts as a shield. However, if the water movement is restricted, it becomes dry quicker resulting in more bad odor to enter our home making it difficult to breathe. To solve this problem, you need to call a professional plumber as soon as possible. Therefore, always ensure the water is allowed to move freely to avoid any getting dry.
