Exclamation Floor Plug Odor

I have an odor coming from an electrical floor outlet in my living room. I've been told that this is impossible......but it gets MUCH worse when my clothes washer drains or when my kitchen sink runs continuously for a few minutes. No one seems to know what to do. HELP!!

What does it smell like?
Is it a burning smell?
More info needed.

Re: Florr plug odor

The odor smells like garbage or the smell you get from the garbage disposal.

What you describe does not sound electrical. It sounds like you have a plumbing problem, either with a drain or a vent. There could be a liquid or gas leak in the walls or floors that is finding its way to your nose through the electrical outlet.
