When we first bought our house there was a terrible smell. We cleaned everything, including a bleach solution on the walls. It smelled clean. The next day we came back and the smell was awful again! We called Steamatic and had the ductwork cleaned out. Turned out there was a lot of ferret/cat/dog hair in the ducts from the pets the previous owners had over the years. The house smelled great after the ducts were cleaned out. You might want to consider it, although if you aren't smelling it anywhere but the basement, the ducts may not be the problem.
