There's a hideous smell eminating from my kitchen - been there for about a week. I think it's coming from where the soil pipe comes through the kitchen extension.
There is a leak to this area so I don't know whether the smell is simply because the area is waterlogged or something more sinister. I have friends hubby coming to sort the leak out soon.
It's not a drain smell but it does smell kind of pooey.
I thought of maybe a cracked soil pipe or something but if this was the case would the smell be permanently there or just when the toilet is flushed? And wouldn't it be a drain smell? There doesn't seem to be any drain blockage anywhere - everything is draining away where it should.
As a single woman I don't want to be getting anyone else out to look at the job for fear of getting stung by cowboys.
It was coming from the fridge freezer - in the area where the motor/fan is. I took the cover off and horror of horrors it looked as though a small mouse or something had got inside, died, and rotted away.
It was truly hideous - I was retching all the time but managed to clean it out so hopefully the smell will go.
