Identifying Smell in House?

I moved into my home a year ago and got the chimneys taken out the living and dining room and the room between the two rooms. We got everything plastered and have gotten new furniture and carpet. However, I have noticed a smell in the room. When you enter the room you notice it more. It's not foul like sewage; it just smells odd and not fresh. My husband put two vents in the room to improve the air flow, but the smell is still there. It only goes away when the windows are opened and then comes back when we close the windows. What could it be?

Did you close up or cover the chimneys, outside? If they're still open to the elements you may have birds' or squirrels' nests.

An animal may have decided to build a home somewhere in your walls or under the house. It is also possible that an animal has died in the walls, floor, underneath, etc. A pest control specialist can check the entire area, remove the home or dead animal and recommend what you can do to prevent future problems. If there is a dead animal in the house structure or underneath, the decay process can leak into the wood structures. If so, you may need to replace the affected area as the smell will last a very long time.

You might just have some old critters trying to stay warm, or buildig nests in the walls. I know it's expensive, but you'll need to check and see what's inside your walls. Sorry.
