How does sewage gas enter the house?
The only way that sewer gas enters the home is if something went wrong with the home’s plumbing. The most common defect in the plumbing system is the presence of drains that do not have trap.
Is sewage gas harmful to people?
Although hydrogen sulfide gas is poisonous, it will be harmful to humans under unusual circumstances. This gas is not harmful for people who are exposed to normal concentrations of this gas at home. But in very high concentrations, this gas has a depressing effect on the central nervous system.
But you should pay attention to the fact that if someone enters a tunnel or pit containing sewage that has been subjected to anaerobic decomposition, the chances of poisoning are not small.
What exactly is a trap?
A trap is a U-shaped device that, depending on the type of pipe, can be made of clay and is capable of trapping sewage. This sewer acts as a cover and does not allow the sewage gas to be released from the drain holes into the house.
