Tips for Removing Smoke Odour from Your Home-At A Look

Trying to get rid of smoke smell? The best way to get rid of smoke smell is to quit smoking, but hey, that’s old news. Besides, perhaps you don’t smoke anyway, maybe you bought or rented a house that has that smell, or perhaps you have someone coming over and would like to get rid of smoke smell fast for the occasion. What’s important is that you want to know how to get rid of smoke smell fast. Check This Out

Well, you are in luck as there is a number of things you can do to eliminate the smell of smoke. First and most obvious is to use fresh air – open up windows and let fresh air clear the smell away. You can also use fans to move the air, ie. put one fan to blow from a window inside and one to blow air towards the window/outside your house. This way the air is forces to move through your house carrying the smell away.

Smoke has an annoying tendency to get into things, be it furniture, cloth, walls or ceiling. In some cases you may have to get rid of an old carpet – sometimes there is just no way to get the smell out of it. Same goes for furniture though it’s rarely that bad. If you have cloth shades on windows then washing them (or replacing completely) is a good idea as well.

You can also use air fresheners or burn aromatic candles in order to cover up the smell. Using fresh linen scent Fabreeze on everything is also a good idea. Cleaning all hard surfaces (walls, floors, cabinets, windows etc) with a general purpose cleaner or vinegar (mixed with water) is also recommended. You can also put a slice of white bread on a plate and soak with white vinegar. Then place these in each room to absorb the odor.

If none of the above get you the results you want, you can find a local company who specializes in stuff like this to come in and use an ozone machine (often used to get rid of mold, so mold removing companies would have it.) This method may be inconvenient though as I know that for mold at least, they usually want everyone out of the house for a day or so (and the ozone level may be too high and not safe to be around.) Well that and obviously the fact you’d have to pay a few hundred dollars.
