What causes a smelly shower drain?

Answer

A smelly shower drain is usually a result of a buildup of mold and mildew. The best thing to do in this situation is clean out the drain trap and also rinse it through with diluted bleach to kill mold and bacteria. This may not be a pleasant task, but it will make your shower drain smell fresh again and also not a haven for germs. An enzyme-based cleaner can also be used to kill bacteria and eliminate shower drain odor.
