Mysterious Smell That Irritates Eyes?

We recently moved back into our 2 bedroom condo after being away for a month, when we began to smell a mysterious strong smell. It is a strong foul odor that comes in the evening as in the early morning. It hurts our eyes and causes our skin to itch.

We hardly smell it at all during the day, but round about suppertime we begin to smell it. It's sharp odor seems to dissipate quickly so it is hard to pin down where it it coming from.

I suspect that it comes from a bathroom that we have in the center of each floor. The gas company came but could find no propane leak. I originally suspected the garbage disposal but a plumber said that it is fine. The water in the kitchen sink occasionally tastes off. What I may do the next time the water tastes off, is to put it in a jar and get it tested. The maintenance guy checked the ventilation of foul gases from the condo but he could see nothing that was blocking it unless it was way down. Help!We wouldn't dare have house guests with a smell like this. There seems to be no way to mask it.

It is possible you might have a trapped, dead animal somewhere in your structure. If so, the smell can last for years as the decay liquids seep into the wood, sheet rock, etc. As it appears you have not considered a pest control/removal expert, you might request an opinon on the problem and the cost to remove. If you find that this is not the problem, you can consider yourselves very lucky as removal and repair can be quite expensive.

Have your a/c ducts inspected... could be mold.
