\Whether you’re a smoker or a non-smoker, most people agree – cigarette odor is distinct and can linger for days. Often, the scent hits you as soon as you open the door of your vacation rental or relative’s home. This can be overwhelming – and you might be asking, how do you remove cigarette smell from an entire home? Your local AC company has the answer. First, you’ll need to invest in the Air Scrubber Plus. Next, gather your supplies.
- Vinegar will be your best friend for this project. You’ll need at least a gallon to remove the foul smell that’s loitering around your home. While it might seem excessive, start by removing all the fabrics that might have absorbed the smoky, cigarette smell. If your washing machine is big enough, toss your linens in, and use cold water with two cups of vinegar added to the load. For best results, dry your fabrics on a clothesline outside.
- Baking soda is known for absorbing funky smells. Start by scattering a handsome amount of baking soda onto rugs, mattresses and furniture. Let the powder settle for about an hour and then proceed with a vacuum to pick up what’s left behind.
- Kilz Paint Primer can help remove the stench that’s already seeped into the walls of your home. While it might take a few coats, once it’s dried you’ll barely notice the unwelcoming cigarette smell that once lingered.
- The Air Scrubber Plus will ensure your smoke-free home stays that way. This product is known for reducing chemicals, contaminants, odors and other unwanted pollutants in the air. By installing this system in your home, you can ensure the cigarette smell never comes back.
