A fella that went to work for my boys is renting my house. Everyone swears he isn't smoking in the house but it still stinks like he is. Anything work to get the smell of smoke out of a house when he moves on?

steam clean the carpets , wash and paint walls , remove all window coverings and wash.

the smoke smell lingers as residue on surfaces , so a very thorough cleaning is how most apartments get turned over from one resident to the next with no major lingering smoke smell

good carpet cleaning and wall washing with TSP soaking any blinds in soapy water and cleaning may be enough

a little OdoBan wouldn't hurt


America only has one issue, we have a Responsibility crisis and everything else stems from it.

Also you should replace all the light switch and electrical outlet coverings the smoke really sticks behind those, learned that from a real estate friend

My brother is a landlord and in these cases you ALWAYS have to repaint the entire interior as well. The nicotine permeates into everything. Check with your paint store about the proper paints and other chemicals necessary to remove nicotine.

I did a remodel on a house once where the whole family smoked and it was tear out carpet, drywall and new curtains. Even the wood work was permeated with the stuff and had have it scrubbed twice with chemical cleaners. I even had ozone machines in there for a week and it didnt help. Good luck and next renter that smoke you can deny them smoking in the residence and get a big deposit.

Kiltz paint the walls and ceilings will help. My father bought a small home to use as a rental. It stunk so bad from the previous crazy woman who had like 50 cats in the house. We kiltz painted the sub flooring, studs, walls and ceilings. It worked! If it will remove cat stink it will remove cigarette odor.

Why tolerate such a problem?
Get rid of the guy before it goes on even longer.
Then clean and sanitize.

I hope you got one heck of a large security deposit. You're going to need it badly if you want to pay for all the paint, carpet, woodwork, drywall, outlet covets and cleaning supplies needed to rent to a non smoker, who won't tolerate that pervasive stench, in the future.

ozone generator. Try to rent one of the big commercial ones. We used them in hotels when a guest smoked in a non-smoking room and they really worked.

If they've been in the house for a long time: extract the carpets and anything soft like furniture and put an ozone generator in the place for a couple of days. Move it around from room to room since ozone doesn't last in the air very long because the ozone molecule is broken down every time it does it's job breaking down the molecules that smell like smoke.

Just take up smoking then it wont bother you.


Forget that fear of gravity-get a little savagery in your life.
