How To Get Rid Of Moth Ball Smell?

Good Questions

Q: I live in an old walk-up building in Manhattan and our apartment suddenly smells like moth balls. Neither my roommate nor I have ever used mothballs. What do you think is causing this? Is there something else that mimics the mothball smell or is this something we should be worried about? Obviously we want it to go away immediately for our own comfort, but if there is something that we should be worried about health-wise?
