Sewer odor
Posted by Alex Hoagland on February 15, 2004 at 20:36:34:
My two story house was built in 1984 and has a septic tank. I purchased the home in December 2002 and the septic tank was last pumped then. I have this terrible odor(sewer or mold mildew smell) coming from the kitchen sink and it is also in the garage. There is a roof vent over the garage. You can enter the garage from the kitchen.
The smell is really strong in the kitchen and garage. I do not smell it upstairs only downstairs. I have opened up the walls in the garage and nothing is there. Could there be something in the roof vent or in the kitchen sink pipes. I don't like to be downstair in my home because of the smell. Does anyone have any suggestions on how I can fix this problem? I would really appreciate any suggestions.
