This answer was rated:

I am getting a musky / moldy smell coming out of my drains, Kitchen , bathrooms, laundry room, all of the drain seem to be omitting an order. How can I eliminate this?

Hauserplb :

How old is your home? Do you hear gurgling from the drains when another drain close by is being used?


House was built in 1972. and we are not hearing any gurgling.


Do you have any suggestions? Headed to work will check back here later. Have a good day, Thank you.

Hauserplb :

Well ussually you see this type of thing when a vent is clogged and the drains loose the water trap, letting in sewer gas. Thats still my first thought of what you have going on. However it could be as simple as infrequent use. Try pouring vinegar down them twice a month and see if that solves your issue.
