Help! Our newly purchased 1981 townhome has a sewer smell that comes on in the heat of the afternoon, if I have turned to a/c up to around 78 or higher. The smell usually comes from the second bathroom, but lately we have noticed whiffs of the smell in the back yard and even in the garage (front of house). Plumbers have come out. Plumber #1 said drains sounded clear, thought it could be mold. Plumber #2 said p trap in hallway where washer & dryer use to be probably has dried up and we need to pour 1 quart of mineral oil down the p trap and this should work. It has been 3 days since I poured the oil and are still getting the smell.

I have poured vinegar, then baking soda, then boiling water down the drains.

My neighbor said once a year he will flush all of his drains (starting with water heater drain and moving out) with the water hose.

All of our drains are draining. What can I try next?

I'm at my wits end!!! I have a 1,000 square foot house. My hall closet smells the plumbing from the bathroom is in there. My washroom smells, it's like my plumbing is all jacked up. My husband is too lazy and too cheap to get us help, I don't know what to do!!!
