insulation smell in my house
i'm hoping someone can help. recently installed some roxul insulation in the rec room and applied a vapor barrier and drywall. since the installation, there is a persistent insulation/musty smell throughout the upstairs. no idea why it has not gone away...

i have forced air heating...thinking it's coming through the ducts? i don't know? any clues to help me? i'm at a loss after weeks now

thank you :)

Chinese drywall?

when you did this work did you create a lost of dust that may have settled in the ductwork?

the first thing i did was clean the ducts and disinfect after the work...the smell just seems to still emit...

I took a whiff of Roxul this morning and smelled nothing. Don't think it's that.

the drywall is a mold resistant variety...thanks to all for helping and comments :)
