Chemical smell coming from under new kitchen sink. Maybe sound dampening pads?

By September 8, 2019 One Comment

We recently had a new countertop and sink installed a couple of weeks ago. The sink had previously sat out in the open for a few weeks before that in our house. However, now whenever I open the cabinet doors under the sink a strong chemical smell wafts out. I can’t imagine it would be the silicone at this point. When googling some people seem to suggest it’s the sound dampening pads under the sink as they contain tar. Has anyone heard of this? Will it stop off gassing eventually?

I’m so frustrated for going with the sink the granite company offers. Ugh.
