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.
