Bad Smells from Blocked Drains

Are you getting bad smells coming from your kitchen or bathroom drains?

It could be a sign that you have a blocked pipe, clogged toilet or a crack in your drainage system and sewage water waste is not draining away. Sometimes that smell is not coming from last nights fish remains in the bin. Sometimes, that bad smell can be the first warning sign that you have a blocked pipe or clogged drain.


At JSL Drainage, we hear the same story time and time again. A bad odour appears from the toilet or the kitchen sink, water starts to drain more slowly and the problems begin.


But what can block the drainage pipes in your home?  Any number of things from loose hair to a build up of dirt and grime.  If you think of all the things that get poured down your kitchen sink, it is little wonder that a blockage has happened.  Sometimes the situation can be fixed yourself simply by using a plunger and a bit of determination.  Other times however it can require a more professional touch.


We are a dedicated Drainage Company operating in and around Glasgow.  Our team is on call each and every day of the year and we specialise in everything to do with drainage.  So whether it is unclogging a blocked drain thanks to winter leaves clogging it all up the toilet becoming backed up because ‘someone’ flushed wet wipes and cotton buds even though they shouldn’t have – we can fix it all.

Where is the bad smell coming from?

High Pressure Jetting & Rodding

High pressure jetting can be used to clear blockages from your pipes and drains and literally blast the bad smell away.


Septic Tanks

If you have a septic tank and the smell is coming from there, Drain Doctor can provide regular maintenance which can cure funny smells and improve the life of your septic tank.



A soakaway is a bit like a well and can dispose of unwanted water which can build up and be the cause of the sewage or mould smell that you have.



There can be so many causes for your bad smells coming from pipes and sinks that the only way to be sure is to call us out to fix the problem. And remember – we dont have a call out charge.
