Foul Odor in Bedroom?

I have had a foul odor in my master bedroom for about a month or more. I live in a 117 year old small house with no central heat or air. I have an indoor cat and dog that's had free run until this mysterious odor appeared! I have shampooed the carpet and that helped for about a day and it came right back. It definitely does not smell like cat urine, however I haven't denied it possibly being dog urine, but my husband emphatically disagrees. He doesn't think it's either one. We have a window unit air conditioner that I've cleaned the filter on so many times it's just ridiculous. I put down 20 Mule Team Borax and Carpet Fresh last night and let it stay for about two hours then vacuumed it up. Then I removed all items from under the bed, sprinkled Borax and Carpet Fresh and left it over night. The smell is back again today.


Any help or suggestions is appreciated.

You may have a dead animal in your walls or floor, especially in a old house. If so, the odor is from the animal's decay liquids soaking into the walls or floor of the bedroom. Problem here is that it is very difficult to remove the decaying smell as they are now in the wood structures. You will probably need to remove the affected area and replace the required structures.

The only way to resolve the problem is to have a pest service clarify the problem and recommend a resolution. The animal must be removed immediately to stop the decay process in your structure. If an animal has not died in your house, you are lucky!!!

I'm with Dinah. There is something in your walls, air ducts, or under your floor.
