I recently moved into a new apartment. Every morning I wake up with a nose full of dry, scratchy mucous and my mouth is blanketed in something foul. What's going on?

Initially, I thought it was the baseboard air conditioning, so I turned that off and opened the window. It has been humid outside and even rained, but no change.
The only major difference I can see between my old place and new that might effect me is that there are new carpets in the new place vs. hardwood floors in the old. The smell of fresh paint is also still intrusive.
About me: I sleep on my side with my mouth closed, but sometimes have minor apnea. I have a few very mild allergies, mostly to pet dander. I have no history of waking up with a nasty mouth.
What can I do to change this situation?
