Just moving my stuff into new house & cannot
believe the strong & unpleasant food odor here!
The carpets were just professionally cleaned & I've got a HEPA air filter running, but it still SMELLS! Please, any suggestions?

What kind of heating/cooling system does the house have? Is one of them currently running? If you have forced hot air, it could be that the ducts have never been cleaned. They should be ever so often.

Can you detect an area where the odor seems strongest? That would likely be the source area, thus limiting your search.

Have the walls been washed or painted, and the inside of cabinets cleaned? Those things couldn't hurt.
