There is a bad smell coming from under my floor
It doesn’t matter if your sense of smell is good or bad – a sewage smell coming from under your floor boards is hard to miss.
If you imagine your kitchen right now – the sink is up against the wall in one corner. Where does the drain pipe go once the water has drained away from the sink? 9/10 times it goes under the floor before joining the drainage pipes that leave your home. In older homes, these drainage pipes can be just as old as the houses themselves so it come as no surprise that at some point, one of the joins in the pipe will crack, fail and begin to leak.
Now because this is under the floor and is a slow quiet drip drip, you are never going to notice it. That is until the smell begins to build.
It can be quite a shock when you finally go to investigate the source of the smell and discover not only the source but the potential damage it can cause to your home. The wooden floor can warp because of the moisture, the water can seep into the walls creating a dampness which itself can cause mould to build up. There are a whole list of things to consider.
