 Smell?

My sons daycare teacher was retiring, and no one wanted her 6 to 8 year old plated lizard. I used to have Savannah Monitors so I thought a free lizard was a great deal. Now that I have her home, she smells up my entire basement. I am using Bed-a-Beast as a bedding, I remove the poop everyday, and I can not get the smell out of the basement. I have changed the bedding twice in a month. The first two days is great but after that it stinks again. If I can’t get the smell under control I am going to have to get rid of her.

Thanks for any advise.
