If you have ever walked into your home and smelled something that resembles rotten eggs, you most likely have a sewer gas leak. Sewer gas is mostly made up of methane, which has no distinct smell at all. However, sewer gas does mix with other gases in the pipelines, which produces the odors.

How The Sewer Gas Odors Are Created

The most common mixing gas is hydrogen sulfide, which gives off a rotten egg stench. If you are experiencing any type of foul odor in the home and cannot place where it is coming from, you should immediately give a call to a sewer repair technician.
