Here's s a link to a thread related to padded toilet seat odors.
Is it a sulfur smell?
We had a case where a strong odor was present when we ran water in one bath
room, but nowhere else in the house. It turned out there was a colony of b
acteria in the drain. When the water ran it pushed hydrogen sulfide odor o
ut. A cup of bleach down the drain cured it.
After two months all smells associated with the renovation should have diss
ipated. Pulling the toilet and installing a new wax ring is one possibilit
y, but you said it is a strong chemical smell like grout. Maybe one of the
products that you used for the remodel is having a bad reaction with anoth
Did any garbage get left inside of the walls?
Is the vent pipe for the bathroom plumbing clear of any obstructions?
Do you have critter problems? Somethings they get into places they cannot
get out of and die. That smell lingers for a long time.
Try contacting the grout manufacturer.
Did you install a new vanity and or counter top? What are they made
of? If the counter / sink is a synthetic, that could be the culprit.
If the vanity cabinet is a pressed wood product, it could have been
manufactured with inappropriate glue such as one might find in product
not made in the USA.
Also, did you install a new wax ring with the new toilet?
