  • 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)
