Default Bathroom Smells

My bathroom has had a smell for like 2 months now well its been like that
ever since i moved in my apartment. It has a smell that i dont really know
what to compare it with. It has the smell all day it doesnt go away. It
espically smells really bad after ur done taking a shower and it smells bad
also when i mop the floor. I dont know where its coming from. I thought it
was my shower curtains but i bought some new ones and the smell was still
thier. I clean the bathroom everyday but the smell would still be in thier. I
dont know what else to do!!

Three things come to mind.
1. Leaking wax ring on the toilet
2. Leaking trap on sink, tub, or whatever else you might have in
there.
3. Dead mouse or other rodent in wall, heat register, etc.

If its a dead animal....... Just let it be the smell will be gone soon.

Had that problem for quite a while in a house I was renting. Finally got
the landlord to pony up for new sheet vinyl, and on tear-out learned
that some moron had used masonite under the old stuff. Yuck. You ever
smelled wet masonite? It's quite distinctive.
