Ventalate is the answer. Open windows and use fans to move air in and out. also have you found where the moth balls are? if not, find them and remove them. they can be a health hazard if concentration is to high. odor products just mask the smell.

If the moth ball smell won't go away, there are probably still moth balls somewhere. Gotta get rid of them before the smell will quit.

If you are sure they are all gone, try the Odor Medic or similar. But moth ball smell tends to get into fabrics and carpets, so it takes awhile. Cleaning the fabrics and carpets might help.

all mothballs are gone. I looked at smelleze and people said it was worthless so I wondered if anyone had used odor medic with good results
