Getting Foul Smell in Your Basement?

  Oct 22 2019

Getting Foul Smell in Your Basement?

Having an unpleasant odor in and around your home can be very unpleasant. The smell can spread quickly through the home ventilation system and if it is emanating from the basement, then your sump pump may be the culprit. This is the reason why sump pump units require regular maintenance works. Please give us a call at Leak Detection of Atlanta for a water leak repair service. The following are some of the reasons for the foul smell in your basement;

Presence of Excess Water

Stagnant water inside a sump pump can cause a foul smell in the basement. The reason for the presence of water in the sump pump is that most times, water will remain below cut off point in the appliance. On the other hand, not using the sump pump for a while in the dry season can encourage the growth of mold, mildew, and bacteria inside the sump pump pit, thus creating odor. In some cases, adding some diluted bleach to the sump pit can clear the odor. You should also remove stagnant water and then scrub the grime before vacuuming the pit to remove the odor. Make sure you add new water once the odor is removed because a dry sump pump may also cause a foul smell.

Problem with Sewer Line

A foul smell from your basement, especially from the sump pump is not only due to excess water. The fact is sump pump appliances are designed to pump excess water out of your home lawn or the street where the water can be channeled to enter the drainage system after being pumped out by the sump pump.

In some older homes, the sump pump to discharge its water into the municipal sewer system, and since the setup is illegal, it can lead to the flooding of the sewer system and that could cause sewage to back up into the pump.

Sometimes, there may be a leakage or complete blockage along the sewer line outside of the house. In this case, your sump pump may be drawing sewer water that has already seeped in and around your home If the leak is emanating from the public sewer line, then the municipality will likely repair it, once it has been located. If it is your sewer line that is damaged, then you need to contact a technician to handle the repair for you.
