What is that smell?

Home Improvement

Ever notice a smell in your house and you just can't find the culprit? Check your drain traps. Traps are designed to keep the odors "trapped" in the pipe and not permit them to escape into your home. When the water in this trap dries up, the obstacle to keep those odors at bay is no longer there and emit an odor into the room. This can be avoided by simply running some water into the drain to fill the trap back up with water and therefore keeping the smells at bay.
