Why does the floor drain in the bathroom emit a bad smell? Is there any good solution? Posted by : admin / Posted on : Jun 10, 2020

The floor drain is the main drain channel of the bathroom, but in daily use, because sewage, hair, etc. enter, it is easy to breed bacteria in a humid and dark environment, and there will be anti-odor and odor. Especially in the hot summer months, the temperature is high and the odor is frequent. Have you ever encountered a stinky floor drain in your life? Here are some tips to prevent the floor drain from worrying:

1. Floor drain cleaning
During use, some residues of hair will be washed away by the pipeline after entering the floor drain, but part of the pipeline wall will remain. Over time, it is prone to siltation and clogging, which is also one of the reasons for the odor of the floor drain.

Therefore, the floor drain should be cleaned regularly in daily use, in accordance with the floor drain cover, the parts of the floor drain, and then the pipeline can be cleaned! After cleaning, you can pour part of the disinfectant solution and warm water into the floor drain, which has a certain sterilization effect. However, it must be noted that the floor drain cover cannot be opened directly during drainage, and food residues cannot be directly discharged into the floor drain.

2. Separation of wet and dry areas
If the internal space of the bathroom is small, you may wish to move the sink to the aisle during decoration! Separating the toilet and the hand basin separately is convenient for daily use and separates the wet and dry areas.

The toilet can be divided into shower area, toilet area and washing area according to different functions. If the dry and wet areas are not separated during decoration, the water in the wet areas will also flow to the dry areas during rain, making the interior of the bathroom wet and becoming a "hotbed" for the breeding of bacteria.

Similarly, the wet and dry areas can also be separated inside the bathroom. Common designs include glass doors, brick walls and shower curtains with water retaining bars. Note that if you plan to arrange the shower area separately, you must remember to reserve a floor drain in the shower area. The new floor drain can speed up the drainage and also help keep the internal floor dry.

3. Floor drain deodorant design
If you want to isolate the odor, you can choose a deep-water sealed deodorant floor drain during decoration. This floor drain can prevent odor and insects and has a good filtering effect. It can easily block hair and garbage from entering the sewer. It should be noted that the water seal floor drain should regularly check whether the internal water is dry, remember to fill the water regularly.

Most floor drains have an anti-odor because of the lack of anti-odor design. The ordinary floor drain only has the function of draining and filtering, but it cannot block the odor and cause the odor to be transmitted to the bathroom through the floor drain.

4. Maintain ventilation
The toilet windows of most homes are relatively small. If the usual door habits are used, the ventilation in the toilet will be worse. Some toilet units do not have independent windows and can only rely on the toilet door to ventilate. Naturally, the interior is easy to smell.

If the bathroom window is small or there is no window, in the case of a non-load-bearing wall, it may be necessary to hollow out a part of the adjacent wall to design a window hole. As shown in the figure above, opening a window hole in the side wall of the bathroom plays a role in enhancing the lighting and ventilation effects.

A single window may have a poor exhaust effect. You can install an exhaust fan on the top surface during decoration. As shown in the figure above, you can turn on the exhaust fan when you need to ventilate and ventilate, which can speed up the speed of ventilation and ventilation .

5. Slope design
Finally, let me talk about the slope design of the floor drain. According to the usage habits, the bathroom floor drain should be located at the lowest place on the ground as far as possible, and it should be arranged in a "funnel" layout according to the surrounding slope to the middle. This can ensure that the sewage is smoothly discharged into the floor drain and the drainage speed is fast. Can keep the floor drain dry.
