I am living in a fairly new house, not quite a year old. In the last few months I have noticed a strong smell when I do laundry. This smell seems to travel to the bathroom in the master bedroom. In these two areas the smell is the strongest.
We have a "P" trap on the pipe leading from the washing machine, and also the toilet is made with a "P" trap.
We can't seem to find the cause of this odor.
We've considered taking the toilet apart and putting in a new seal, but why is the smell so strong only after washing clothes. If anyone can help me on this I would appreciate it.
