Plumber + Mothball smell? ?

I live in a 2 family home. Today I noticed the upstairs neighbor had a plumber Going from their unit to the basement all morning. The entire basement now reeks like mothballs, and since we live on the first floor we can smell it in our unit. Anyone have any idea what the smell could be? Or if it’ll go away?

    He probably spilled a little fuel oil and spread deodorizer on it. Sooner or later it will clear up I suppose. Have some cheese in the mean time.
