What can I do about sewer odor?

If you smell sewer gas, try pouring water into the drain traps. One of the most common traps to dry out, possibly unnoticed, are floor drains like those typically placed near home furnaces and water heaters. Infrequently used utility sinks, tubs, showers, and toilet wax rings are also common culprits. If pouring water into the floor drain does not eliminate the odor, contact us at the numbers listed below for assistance. Sewer odors are handled on an emergency basis. A crew will respond to determine the problem and will leave a door tag that explains their findings if no one is home. This is a free service. FOR IMMEDIATE ASSISTANCE: Monday through Friday, 7:00am - 3:30pm: call 309.524.2300 After 3:30pm or on weekends and holidays: call 309.524.2300 You can also submit a request for a non-emergency situation.
