I have sewer odor within my home, what do I do?

If you smell a sewer odor inside your home, check your drains. Often drains will have water inside them, which creates a barrier that prevents odors from entering your home. If the drain is dry for some reason, there is no barrier for the smell to enter your home. To fix this, put water down all your drains. Make sure to check drains in your basement or laundry rooms as well. See Prevent Sewer Odors.
