terrible odor in new construction conditioned crawl
Hi! We recently had a home built in the Richmond, Va area. It was completed in August. We paid extra to have a conditioned crawlspace installed. During construction, mold was discovered in the crawlspace and it had to be treated 3 times. The crawlspace failed inspection and had to be re-done 4 times. Since moving in, we have been enduring a strong, cat urine like smell coming up through the vents into the house. The smell in the actual crawlspace is hideous.
We had to close and place furniture over the passive vent in the living room, because the dogs were going crazy sniffing and digging at it. The smell is worst at the side of the house where the handler is. Unfortunately, this is directly under the master bed and bathroom. Lucky us! We don't know if this can be fixed or not. Any suggestions would be appreciated, Thanks!
