Our house is 5 years old and over the last couple of years we are getting a horrible smell in two of the rooms. The smell is not constant. It comes and goes lasting about 45 minutes once or twice a week ~ mostly in the Spring and Summer.
In our downstairs bedroom it seems to come when we move things that have sat on the floor (boxes, etc) for quite sometime. We've ripped the carpet out and bleached the floors but it still comes when we do the above. We have a dog but when we ripped the carpet up, we found only on spot where she peed (and we had know about that and cleaned it several times).
It our upstairs bedroom there doesn't need to be activity in the room for the smell to come. It's not as frequent in that room. The rooms are not over each other. The dog has never peed in there.
I don't know who to call ~ how to track it ~ etc. It doesn't happen at all upstairs unless it's spring or summer. The other room has it every now and then in the winter. Please also know that we have an office next to the room upstairs/above the room downstairs that doesn't have this problem as all.
I apologize for this being so long but I don't know what to do, who to call and we are frustrated.
