Chemical Misapplication In Home - Remediation Questions

I posted a question here last week regarding a strong chlorine/bleach type smell that has permeated our home. We have only owned the home 3 months (have yet to move in) but suspect the prior owners applied some chemicals soon before closing that have resulted in the smell.

We know Sporicidin was used and my understanding is the chemical is very safe and dissipates rapidly. We are becoming increasingly convinced that another chemical may have been applied prior (potentially bleach) or was already present in our attic and the two combined are now resulting in a strong chlorine/bleach type odor.

Does anyone have any experience with Sporicidin being sprayed (fairy certain the two were not mixed) resulting in a persistent strong bleach odor? It permeates our clothing and even an old piece of furniture that we removed from the house. We are having an environmental air test done next week --- any ideas on what is next if this is in fact what we find out?
