Horrible smell in house
We've been having a horrible smell that comes in the night/early morning. It's sulphery, or like burnt garlic and so very strong that it wakes us up. It seems to be somewhat localized to one side of the house and very very strong coming out of a hall closet. I'm not sure where to start looking for the problem. Some posts I've read have suggested burning electrical wires, leaking sewer trap lines, mold, wet insulation, even degrading mothballs. But, none of those would explain why it's coming in the night like that. When i get home from work around 6pm, there is a lingering smell of skunkiness which can for the most part be sprayed into submission, but then then other odor comes in the wee hours and is overwhelming. Unless, maybe the electrical thing is related to the heater which runs more in the night. Dunno... any ideas?
