We just moved into our new home about 2 months ago. We have a 3 bedroom back to front split ranch. The middle bedroom has a strong rubber odor. I can't for the life of me figure out what is causing it. The 2 bedrooms and either side, the attic and the family room below have no odor.
We do have a screen in porch - the porch roof is beneath the windows in this bedroom. Could it be from the sun hitting the tar? The roof is VERY old and needs to be replaced. But, when I stick my head out the window - there seems to be no odor out there.
We recently had an electrician install a ceiling fan - he noticed the smell but didn't seem concerned that it was wiring.
We have a forced hot air vent - but it doesn't seem to be coming from that.
It defnitely doesn't not smell like a dead animal....
ANY OTHER IDEAS? Suggestions on how to pinpoint it?
