toilet plumbing

My house was built without vents in the pulmbing.When I do laundry I get a sewer smell coming up thru the sinks,bath tub & shower. Is there anything I can do to fix this problem without tearing into the walls ? I can get to most of the drains & plumbing in the basement.

RE: toilet plumbing

You sure about not having vents? Do you have one or more pipes sticking out of your roof? Those are vents. Maybe you have a clogged vent.
