Dealing with Plumbing Odors

Monday, December 2nd, 2019

sunny-plumber-vanConsidering the nature of your plumbing system and the different jobs that it does, the fact that “plumbing odors” can be a problem really should not come as too much of a shock. That being said, you should not just be willing to put up with plumbing odors because you think they’re just part of the deal.

Instead, we recommend that you tackle the problem at its source, which is why our plumbers in Las Vegas want to share some tips with you. Don’t get us wrong—there are certainly times in which you’ll want to light a candle or spray some air freshener in the bathroom.
