In response to Re: Smell in the bathroom after it rains
: We just bought a house w/ an added bathroom in the master bedroom. The bathroom is on the 2nd floor and is small. An awful smell comes from the tub and sink only after it rains, well at least that where I think it is coming from. My wife is concerned it might be that toxic mold and wants someone to look at it. Has anyone had this same problem? Help please!

It would be very strange if the rain had anything to do with it, especially since the bathroom is on the second floor of the house. Make sure that all the plumbing fixtures have water in their traps. You may want to have the toilet reset on a new wax gasket or at least caulk around the base where it meets the floor until it can be done, this is a common area where sewer gas can escape.
