I understand what you are saying about the duct and the dead or alive move. However I know the smell of dead animals and this is not it. The smell is much like fingernail polish or remover.
I hear you. But, this is where the mystery comes in. The room was painted by a friend, there is no paint on the carpet nor any spots of ruined carpet. The carpet has not been replaced.
It was the room of a 12 year-old girl. I had wondered about fingernail polish remover? and it reacted with the pad of the carpet? But the carpet would have been eaten by the same acetone that got the pad as it is a non-natural fiber.
My main concern is why is the room toxic!!!!
David, I don't know how this just answer works, however to check out these possibilities will take some time. Meanwhile, could this cause a toxic reaction?
There is no ductwork on the floor, only in the ceiling.
Nor is there a closet uppershelf in the back. why would the smell seem to go away with the window open, but the toxic is still there?
We will check out the duct in the ceiling.I have a question would not the ductwork effect the whole house?
nothing has turned up yet.
the 15 dollars is spent.
the solution that we have decided on so far is close the room a sheet under the door and move when our lease is up.
and hope the smell does not show up anywhere else. If it does we will break the lease and find another home.
without a smell.
Thank you for your time, David
One other thought, who might we have come by and Figure out our mystery . Some type of Contractor but what?
