Can Cigarette Smoke Smell Be Removed From A House

The smell of cigarette smoke can permeate a home and give it a stale smell. Maybe you have chosen the new year to kick a bad habit, or maybe you just purchased a home that was previously owned by smokers. Regardless of the reason behind your cigarette removal need, home deodorization is high on your list of priorities.

This odor can be difficult to remove. This is because cigarettes leave behind

  • Toxic and irritating gases
  • Tar vapors
  • Smoke residue

Cigarettes produce toxic and irritating gases such as phenol, ammonia gases and carbon monoxide. They also release tar vapors that become sticky. These vapors, residues and gases are able to travel everywhere.

Ozone, or O3, is one of the few home deodorization techniques that actually work to combat this. That is because an ozone generator eliminates odor by oxidizing the air. The oxidized air is circulated through the air just as smoke is and so is able to get to all the places cigarette smoke does, effectively getting rid of the smelly residue.

If you have a smelly home, you can hire professionals in Flamingo Bay, FL, that can help you identify the source and eliminate the problem. Many odors can be removed without a trace. Although cigarette smoke is one of the most offensive and prevalent odors, it is not the only one. Home deodorization can also include pet odors, spill odors and other foul smells.

Oxidization is just one of many ways specialists might remove offensive smells. Sometimes special equipment and treatments are necessary to clean air ducts, carpets, upholstery and hard surfaces.

If cigarette smoke is the culprit, all of these surfaces and areas must be deodorized for your home to smell fresh and clean again. If you are feeling overwhelmed, you might benefit from an odor specialist in Flamingo Bay, FL.
