  • HELP! Mothballs in my climate controlled facility, and I can't pinpoint who it is!!!

    We have very clear language in our lease that disallows any odorous contents and it explicitly mentions mothballs. Alas, no one reads the lease I guess...

    So what to do? I've tried smelling around the units, and believe I've got it narrowed down to 1 quadrant. I'm sending and email to those tenants now, but I'm not sure what the next steps are if they ignore/don't see the email or don't remember using mothballs when they stored stuff.

    Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

    Hotels have those mobile 'odor' removers specifically for things like cigarette smoke-I'd bet they'd work for moth balls. That's a bad smell but I remember it fondly because our Halloween trunk had a bunch of old clothing and moth balls in the bottom.

      That email should include a warning of numerous $ amounts to track down, rid the area and clean up for the smell after you find out who has done that. There are certain areas of the lease that I cover face to face with the tenant. I don't expect them to actually read the lease. Anything I feel is important is gone over and initialed by that tenant. I have come right out and said to some tenants that I do not accept the excuse, "I didn't know".

        Odoban makes a great smell absorb-er they carry it at home depot and it is less than $1. There are far worse smells!!! They also have many great cleaning agents. Good luck.

          Note: They may be attempting to cover up the smell of something else.

            Oh, yikes. That's a nightmare. What can possibly be WORSE than mothballs that they're trying to hide? (please don't be bodies)

              We just started last month renting on line and it is working good so far. We have Kiosks and there is not a lot of difference But you know nothing is perfect. I guess you could call it the future.

              We use storEDGE and have been asking for the feature since 2014 when we switched from sitelink stand alone. We were told that they would be adding the feature soon, and that has yet to ever happen. We offer RV Storage, and so say if a customer comes in on the 15th but won't need it until the 1st, we...

              My wife and I ran a property down in Dallas. We were right down town in a very bad part of Dallas. Lots of transients and drugs were rampant. The reason I mention all of that is it did not make a difference to us. When we left one my homeless people that I had to bicker with fairly often came up...
