vent stack

I am getting a smell from my house mostly in the bedroom with the main bathroom, it's smells like mold but I am not sure if that's it or not. My cloths smell and my sheets. If I go away for a long period of time I can really smell it when I come in the house. The sewer backed up once so my landlord had it drained, but I am not sure if it's coming from the roof vent stack because it's clogged. I don't see mold anywhere.

 

Thanks

In addition to letting sewer gases out, vents let air in.  Do you have any problems with slow drains or gurgling sounds.  If not, then the problem might be elsewhere.  In a bathroom I'd be thinking about the toilet seal.  There's a wax ring under the toilet that keeps water in and smells out.
