Cracked pipes and clogged drains could also be another reason
Imagine when you wake up and opening your washbasin tap to wash your face and turn the water on, and… a stream of brown, cloudy mush drizzles out. Rust colored water, though normally not harmful, it can be disturbing. This could be due to corroded pipes or mineral build up.
Seeing your tap water turn rusty is indeed a traumatizing experience. When water in the pipe contains an excess of sediment or minerals, the water looks rusty brown, yellowish, or reddish.
The most common discoloring minerals present in water are iron and manganese. Tiny metallic deposits of these minerals can get into the water stream via several different sources and these minerals can also be responsible for any unpleasant tastes or smells your water might have. These contaminants may or may not be dangerous to health but taste and smell differently also it could stain clothing or cause skin rashes. Discoloured water could also come from your water heater or your water supply pipes which have become rusty or corroded
There are thousands types of mold and their spores travel through the air around us every day. Once these spores settle, they reproduce in 24-48 hours. Bathrooms and showers provide the perfect breeding ground for mold as all they need is moisture and oxygen.
If you see black or green gunk in the corners of your tiles and caulking or dark spots along walls, you probably have mold which is a health risk, especially for people with acute illnesses and compromised immunity.
The first rainfall of the season is something special. Unfortunately, for some their home smells like sewage when it rains. If this is happening to you, don’t fret, there are things you can do and reasons your home smells like sewage when it rains. Sewer systems are meant to be a gateway for waste and generally composed of water, human waste, and other organic waste. When all of these mix together it makes a smell that is not only terrible, but it could also be toxic.
Most homes have a u-shaped sewer trap in the system which creates a seal and acts as a barrier. If this u-trap is not properly sealed, or the seal has broken, gas from the sewer and sewage waste will find its way into your home.
Cracked pipes and clogged drains could also be another reason. When a drain is clogged, chances are it’s backed up by biological material. Usually food scraps, hair, and other things that can make it down the drain. If you are dealing with a clogged sink, the smell of the backup can waft into your home, causing everything to smell like sewage.
