dead smell in room, help!!

Posted by Cheryl on June 12th, 2002 09:36 PM

I have a 8 yr old house with a room and garage add on 4 yrs. old. The add on has a cement crawl space/foundation. For about one to two months there has been a horrible odor in the room. I can't pinpoint where it is coming from-have smelt every square inch and it is just in certain parts of the rooms air, if this makes any sense. How long would a dead animal in the wall or attic smell for? We have a gas wood type stove in there and have shut off the gas so we eliminated that. Took out all the plants, removed the fish tank (which didn't seem to smell). It almose seems to be in the wall area when I sniff. I know there were critters (probably mice) over the winter, heck, I can't get rid of the mouse that has lived in my garaged car (yes, in the car not just under the hood) for the last two winters-it's disgusting.No access to attic above this added room where the smell is. Is there anyone I can call to come in and help with this? Please help, I can't stand it anymore...
