My most recent guests contacted me today to complain there was a terrible stench at 3 am. That smell was so strong and woke them up and the smell lingered for an hour and disappeared. That smell was only in the master bedroom (with ensuite). The rest of thouse didn’t have such smell, and they thought it was from sewer.
I feel quite puzzled about what happened. Because if the smell was from sewer, the other bathroom should have the same smell as both bathrooms share same sewer system.
I have Airbnbed the home for about 16 months, and no one ever mentioned this. I also stay in the house from time to time to do cleaning and maintenance work.
Does anyone have an idea about what could possibly happened? I think if there was a leak of sewer or gas, the smell won’t go away itself. But the guest told me it was so strong to even wake them up and disappeared in one hour. I even called the water company, and they told me there was no maintenance last night and no report by other residents in the area.
If you have a theory, please let me know and thank you in advance!
