Hello,

There has been a smell coming from the empty closet in one of our bedroom for the last 6 months. The smell comes and goes (over days, and during the day. The smell also gets worse when the window IS open, and also when it is hot). We have had a mold specialist and a pest specialist come in, both of them think it smells like a dead critter, but they also feel a dead critter shouldn't smell for so long.

To add to the problem, we are in a third floor apartment, above us is the attic, but it is all sealed up with no access from the apartment (neither do my neighbors), and no external access either so we can not send a specialist to inspect the actual attic space. We are in touch with the HOA now to see if we can get permission to open a hole in the ceiling to inspect and make sure there's no nesting going on. But really at a loss on what to do.

Any advice from your expertise will be very much appreciated!!

Many thanks,
Lena
