Foul odor from the kitchen and the bathroom can be very disgusting, especially if you have guests coming over. There is always a negative connotation about the smell and guests might think that you have unhygienic practices in your home. If you are one of the homeowners bothered with the problem, Knoxville Plumbing can provide you with a solution. They will tell you how to get rid of them and how to prevent them from ruining your house party.
Unpleasant odors may come from the buildup of food debris within the garbage disposal. No matter how new or old it is, food, especially the greasy type, can accumulate and release the foul smell. If it comes from the bathroom, Knoxville Plumbing thinks that it could probably come from the defective water seal. Traps in the plumbing system prevent the odor from escaping and entering the house. They contain water to seal the odor. However, once it evaporates, the trap becomes less functional and the odor starts entering your bathroom.
For the kitchen odor, the use of ice cubes, lemon or orange peels in the disposer help reduce the odor. You can then squirt a little dishwashing detergent followed by running cold water. The solution is only temporary. For longer odor-free kitchen garbage disposer, Knoxville Plumbing recommends the use of chemical solutions commercially prepared in many stores. For the bathroom problem, Knoxville Plumbing recommend that you pour water in each trap, sink, floor and water drain. The water will help in sealing the odor to prevent it from entering the house.
Foul odors are shameful especially if you have guests in your house. Although the above-mentioned primary solutions are temporary, they can help reduce the smell. If they persist, it is better to contact Knoxville Plumbing to get more professional assessment and solution.
