I live in an apt above a garage that does not ever have cars in it, there is also no natural gas lines in the garage. PG&E has already been out to check for gas or carbon monoxide, tested free of those two things. Since I have moved in 6 weeks ago in the last 3 weeks I have been lightheaded daily, I am a cancer patient, my friend came over for 4 hours and complained of a headache and burny eyes. For two days the apt was closed up because it was so hot and I was running a portable ac, the smells became very strong after having the apt closed up. Who can I have test this, I feel like it is either sewer gases, since I have smelt smells from the bathroom since I got there, or possible mold that I cannot see. Can you help guide me who to call to have this checked? thank you, Danita
