    A certain amount of mold spores are always in the air unless you live in an extremely arid region. Liberally spread baking soda in the area and vacuum it up a few times. However, more often than not, pests may fall between the walls, get trapped and begin to rot there. Trying to locate the dead animal, on the other hand, could be quite challenging. So I agree with the wait it out suggestion, I've done that myself. P-traps are there so that water gets trapped, creating an air block for any sewer gases that might rise up.

    if you have a floor drain, pour some water down it to refill the trap. If the smell is consistent for a long time, it's likely sewer gas and not.You may need to recaulk your plumbing fixtures to prevent water from entering the area between the fixture and the wall, which could cause water damage and foster mildew and mold growth.

    What you smell may be mold, mildew, cat urine (or feces), dead mice, or sewer gas. If you have an older home, there's a good chance you battle with moisture in.We've cleaned and moved things, so now we need to call a professional in.
