Thank you so much for the fast response. Yes, I'll indeed consider calling a person who can conduct a smoke test. My neighbor has suggested a drain repairing person who did an excellent job with their repairs.
Thank you once again.

I moved into a rented house a few months ago. I have a sewer smell that comes and goes daily in my house. The disgusting smell seems to be coming from the kitchen. This smell usually happens in the evening to late-night daily. I have had a plumber in and could not find anything wrong, recommended a video. I have had the HVAC unit cleaned and ducts cleaned. The smell only lasts for a couple of hours then dissipates to no smell. I use dyeing products for my hair.
As you know, there are some nasty chemicals in hair products; I was wondering if this is the answer: when the pump cycles sewage thru the house, it permeates up thru the house in open plumbing (toilet, sink, etc.) This would also answer the intermittent smell? Any chemicals I could use to clean the system?
