Causes Of Sewer Odors In Your Commercial Building
Having a commercial facility that offers proper hygiene is imperative for its operation. One of the worst things you can experience is having sewer odors leaking into your commercial building as it can indicate you are dealing with a serious problem. However, not only do major issues need quick resolutions, but smaller-scale problems do as well. It requires experienced and trained commercial plumbers to be able to effectively track down the actual source of these problems to ensure that the solution deals with the root cause of it.
There are various potential causes that could lead to sewage odor to leak into your commercial building. Below, you will find a list of some of them.
- Dried P-Traps In Unused Areas
A lot of larger commercial buildings have a lot of sections that go unused for long periods of time or that have been completely sealed off. If you have drains in these areas that are still connected to the main system, the gas from the sewers can end up escaping through the drains into your commercial space. The p-traps that can be found in these drains will have likely dried up and effectively removed a normal barrier from the movement of the gas. Therefore, you will need to have commercial plumbers use cement to seal the pipes up.
- Leaking Sewer Vents or Improperly Installed Vents
Another issue would be your sewer vents allowing sewer gas to build-up and escape through the roof. If your building suffers from leaks throughout the sewer vent pipes, it can cause the sewer gas to enter through the walls of the rooms. This is where you will require a specialized plumber to utilize detection methods to identify and locate the leak in order to allow for proper sealing or re-piping.
If the vents were never installed the right way, improper and inefficient venting will likely cause the sewer gas to raise from the drains. A commercial plumber will have to replace the vents with the right size pipes in this instance to remedy the problem.
- Clogged Vents
Any sort of damage to the vent including that from nest building or even storm damage can end up clogging the openings of the vents themselves. This can cause the gas to get pushed back down into the drainpipes and back up through the drains. This is a situation where you absolutely must call on an experienced commercial specialist.
