A sprayed contact adhesive is the most likely product to have been used.

These are generally petroleum based and do have a distinctive smell, personally I like the smell of them.

Surely the best way to identify the source is to get on your hands and knees and use your nose. :scratch:

Has it occurred to you that the smell may be stronger at the source?

Smell will normally dissipate within a day at most. What does it smell like ????? Do you have pets and are they house trained ??
