Quality plumbing at a fair price.

It’s not uncommon to walk in your basement and inhale a sewer smell. Homeowners often panic and call us thinking there’s a need for a sewer line replacement or repair.  Lance Smith, the owner of L.D. Smith Plumbing, solves this mystery. The problem could be in your P-Trap, which prevents gases from entering the home. If faucets and toilets in the basement have not been used for a long period of time, the P-Trap becomes dry, causing a sewer smell. Check out Lance’s video to learn how to solve this common problem and reduce the sewer smell.

If you believe the sewer smell is part of a larger problem in your home, contact us immediately to schedule an appointment with one of our plumbers. Learn more about our services here.
