Sewer Odor


I have a home that is around 40 years old. Recently I noticed a faint but noticable ordor coming from a bedroom closet. At first I thought it might be a dead mouse etc. After giving some thought I think it is possibly the sewer vent pipe. The smell does not enter the bathroom just the bedroom closet that buts up against the bathroom. The vent pipe is in the same vecinity. The odor is in the same vecinity as the toilet. I have had no construction or any change in this area. I got on the roof and ran the hose down the vent pipe and the water seemed to flow freely. I also have to add it did not seem that much odor was coming from the pipe. Is there a trap to the toilet that could be malfunctioning or could the vent pipe have a small obtruction that is throwing things off. Everything is flushing and draining very well but the smell is seeping in some how.

Thank You,

Tom R.
