bad odors and smell

Septic odors and smells are never a welcoming scent in a home, thus foul. They can be dangerous since the gases excreting from the septic tank sewage systems contain carbon dioxide, hydrogen sulfide, and methane which can be extremely harmful if they enter the home. These gases can be toxic and result in explosions. One can use the following tips to get rid of the septic odors in their home

  • clean the drain covers with hot water as you scrub plus a septic-safe cleaner and replace it after. since sludge builds up on the drain covers bringing a foul smell in the home
  • Baking soda and vinegar, create a solution of 1/2 baking soda and 1/2 white vinegar and flush down the system followed by hot water after.
  • Baking soda. you can flush or drain the baking soda once a week to keep the smell off your home and keep it fresh.

However, if fouls smell consistently persist, its time to schedule a septic system check-up since the most common cause of excreting odors from a septic tank is that the tank is full and needs to be emptied
