Sewer gas isn’t something most of us like to contemplate, but it can be an issue here in St. Louis and surrounding areas.

Your problem is no problem for our team. Call us today and let us get to the bottom of that sewer gas!

What Is Sewer Gas?

Sewer gas is usually hydrogen sulfide, a chemical created with a lack of oxygen in the sewer system. St. Louis and surrounding areas’ water treatment services usually take care of the problem before it starts, but heavy rains and sludge at the bottom of sewer pipes can sometimes lead to its creation.

In your household, it usually arises from one of three reasons:

  1. A trap in your plumbing system has become dry or damaged.
  2. A drain line has cracked or otherwise become damaged.
  3. A vent is damaged or stopped up.

Trained technicians can usually spot these issues and find the best means of repairing it. Contact us today and let us know how we can help!

Detection is Key

If your family is bothered by the strange smell created by sewer gas, it can be hard to pinpoint the source of it. That’s where a trained plumber comes in: armed with the right equipment to properly pinpoint the source of the trouble before recommending a course of action.

The trained pros on our team are all fully licensed, certified and background checked, so you can count on us to get the job done. Our fully stocked tucks have the right equipment to perform gas leak detection, and we can hunt down the trouble spot in no time at all. Call on us today.

We’ll Solve the Problem in the Long Term

Fixing sewer gas issues is more than just ensuring all the traps in the home are wet and sealed. If there’s damage to the pipes at the bottom of it, it needs to be fixed quickly. If it’s a sealed vent, it needs to be unsealed before the lack of air flow damages other components. And that comes on top of the smell of sewer gas itself, which needs to stay gone once you get rid of it. Our team knows how important it is to correct the problem so that it doesn’t recur, which is why we go through such care and attention with every detail. It’s helped us earn an A+ rating from the Better Business Bureau, and we demonstrate why with every job we take!
