We bought a house recently and the one bedroom smelled absolutely awful. My husband ripped out the carpet and pad and it aired out at least a week before we put the new carpet in. We saw no stains on the plastic part of the pad, under the pad, or subfloor. The smell seemed to be gone so we didn’t seal the floor. I even got down and smelled the floor.

Now when the door is shut it still has an odor. The walls are freshly painted; trim and ceiling are not. I can not find the source of the smell. I’ve smelled the carpet, baseboards, and doors in different locations repeatedly. Can’t find where it’s coming from. I’m not against pulling the carpet up and sealing the floor, but like I said, the carpet does not smell. I’d hate to do that and it not be the problem. Any ideas?

I happened to have this photo of when I was painting that shows the subfloor.
