The unpleasant smell that develops inside your sewer pipes is usually caused by rotting organic matter and waste. It’s not unusual to catch a whiff of the stench, but if the foul odor coming from your drains is becoming pervasive, you need to call a plumber in Mountlake Terrace, WA.

Jim Dandy Sewer & Plumbing is here to help with any regular or emergency plumbing in Mountlake Terrace, WA you might have. Let us walk you through our odor detection process.

How We Find the Source of Odors

A key step we take in our odor detection process is to perform a camera inspection. Organic material can gather around clogs and obstructions in the pipe. The camera allows us to find these problems quickly. Cracks in your drain pipes can allow sewer gases to escape. The camera inspection helps us find cracks and collapses in the sewer line wall. We also utilize top of the line odor detection equipment to locate the source of the unpleasant odor, or where the concentration of the stench is the highest.

How to Correct the Odor Problem

Once we find the cause of the odor, the next step is to tackle the problem. If there's a clog or obstruction in the pipe, we can use hydro jetting or drain snaking to clear it out. Even if your sewer pipe has tree root infiltration, we can remove those obstacles quickly and efficiently.

Clearing a clog is often all we need to do to get rid of the odors. However, if the pipe has sustained damage, it needs to be repaired by a top plumbing company in Mountlake Terrace, WA.

Using a cured-in-place pipe (CIPP) lining is an efficient way to do this. With our expertise in plumbing services in Mountlake Terrace, WA, you are not relying on a DIY solution. Repairs, after all, must be carried out by professionals.


With trenchless pipe repair, you don't have to worry about the expense and hassle of digging up the yard. It saves time and money. When you need plumbing repairs in Mountlake Terrace, WA, contact Jim Dandy Sewer & Plumbing. Call us or fill out the online form to schedule your appointment.
