When it comes to sewage cleanup, it’s a very good strategy to find the source of a sewage leak in the first place. Sewage odor can reek havoc on your home and there is a very easy way to determine the source. It’s called a smoke test.

As the video below shows, you’ll want to discharge smoke through the main clean out the home. So obviously, before you get started, you’re going to have to block off all the vents. Get up on that roof and tape all the vents so that smoke cannot get out.

This test can be done with a smoke test kit that you can find in any hardware store. If you don’t know what it is, just ask. It’s very easy to do. But, you might feel better calling the experts.

Once the vents are all blocked off, go ahead and discharge the smoke into the sewer system. You will immediately see where every leak is and be able to work out the plan to patch it up. It is that easy.

In the video, you’ll see how he does it. It’s not hard. But again, if you feel unsure of yourself just ask an expert. It’s more cost effective than making a mistake and it’s better than just dealing with the odor.

Make sure you SHARE this with your friends on FACEBOOK so that anyone with sewage odor knows what to do before they begin their sewage cleanup.
