ServiceMaster of Rochester. If you’re a smoker who may be trying to quit, have no desire to quit, or you’ve moved into a home with a previous smoker, try these simple tips to achieve clean, smoke-free air.
- Stop smoking inside. The best and only way to stop cigarette smoke from lingering in your carpets and other areas of your home is to stop smoking inside. Even with a window open or fans on, smoke is going to linger in the walls and carpets.
- Hire a professional upholstery and carpet cleaning service. You vacuum every couple of days and burn candles to take the cigarette smell out, but it doesn’t seem to help. Chances are the smell is deeply embedded in the fibers of your carpet and upholstery. The only way to solve this problem and remove the smell is to hire a professional upholstery and carpet cleaning service with the proper equipment and products for cigarette smoke removal.
- Scrub walls. Smoke finds its way to the walls of your home, office, or the interior of your car. Take some time regularly and scrub the walls to help remove the smoke odor as well as brighten the look.
- Clean appliances. If you’ve ever pulled out your refrigerator, oven, microwave, or heaters, you, like most, will see a lot of dust. Smoke loves dust and tends to cling to it. Cleaning away this dust will remove some of the odors caused by cigarette smoke.
