Sewer Odor Inspection Services in Toronto
Sewer gas is a mixture of toxic and nontoxic gasses produced and collected in sewage systems by the decomposition of organic household and industrial waste. Exposure to small levels of hydrogen sulfide, for example, irritates the eyes and respiratory tract. It also causes headache, dizziness, drowsiness, nausea and nervousness. High concentrations of methane gas, on the other hand, can cause explosions. Overall, sewer gas is harmful and can be fatal at extremely high levels. If you notice this distinctive, foul odor, do not ignore it.
