- Blocked stopper or strainer
The showers come with a strainer to cover up the drains. It is used to stop hairs and other kinds of debris flow inside the drain. Mostly, the smell coming out is the result of old accumulated debris. To avoid this, you should frequently check your pipes and drains to check left scum.

Both mildew and mold like to grow in wet places, which are usually dark, and the shower is one of the best places. Hence, whenever you take out the strainer, make sure you sealed it properly. Any kind of space left behind becomes the home of mold or mildew.
