      I have recently noticed sewer gas smell coming from the floor drain in the laundry room in the basement. We are not on a septic system. We have lived here 20 years and never had the problem before.

      : I have recently noticed sewer gas smell coming from the floor drain in the laundry room in the basement. We are not on a septic system. We have lived here 20 years and never had the problem before. How can I get rid of this odor?

      First pour some water down the drain to refill the liquid seal of the trap. there are 5 ways a trap can lose its seal. One of the most common is evaporation in floor drains.
