  • unidentified odor

    lately, i have a peculiar odor: pungent, garlicy, skunk-like, that appears, dissipates and reappears. i cannot find the source. it is strong in the basement but doesn't seem to be strong at my drains. i have a sump pump in the basement that exists primarily because of natural ground water. could the ground water be bringing this smell into my house? any idea what it is? could it be hazarous? help please. i don't know who to call or what to do....

    check the drain that the condensate from your AC dumps into. If it doesn't drain to the sump pump.

    Sometimes that trap in the ground dries up in the winter time.

    If that's the case, pour some water in it.

      Are you sure it's not a dead mouse or something like that?
