One of the most problematic cleaning problems is cigarette odor. This stench can linger for decades. Non-smokers in the market to buy a new home are immediately turned off by the smell of tobacco smoke and residue. Just quit smoking? You'll notice immediately how much those cigarettes invaded your home. A deep clean can help you start fresh, whether you're an ex-smoker or have just purchased a home containing the foul smell of cigarette odor. Let's look at three places that harbor smoke stink.
1. Carpets are notorious for holding on to smells. From cigarette odor to pet accidents, you're going to notice if a carpet has become not so fresh. The expense of replacing the carpet throughout an entire house is out of reach for many. Sometimes the carpet isn't dirty or that old; it just smells like it. That's where a serious deep cleaning can take care of your smelly tobacco leftovers.
2. Furniture, even leather furnishings, grab onto smoke scents. As with carpet it can be a huge hassle to replace everything you own. For a fraction of the cost of replacement, you can have the cigarette odor extracted through deep upholstery cleaning. You'll be surprised at how much fresher your home smells once your furniture is cleaned.
3. Don't forget that walls can smell. Tobacco smoke creates a yellow-brown sticky film on everything. Your walls should be scrubbed if possible. Painting doesn't always help enough as the nicotine film may cause the new layer of paint to absorb the smell or peel off in patches.
