7 Simple Methods for Cigarette Odor Removal


The harmful chemicals from secondhand cigarette smoke can linger for up to 5 hours, and the smell can last even longer. So how can you remove the smell of cigarettes from your house?

This article lists seven simple tips for cigarette odor removal. 

1. Air it Out

One of the best ways to get rid of cigarette odor is to air out the area that smells. This means opening up the windows and letting a breeze blow through. If a room has only been smoked in a little, this can be the most effective method. 

2. Remove the Cigarette Butts

One of the primary sources of cigarette smell is cigarette butts. If you remove these from the room, you'll find the smell of cigarettes is not as strong. 

3. Duct Cleaning Services

If you're thinking about how to remove cigarette smells in a house that has been smoked in a lot, you'll need to consider a more thorough cleaning. In many cases, the smell of cigarettes can get into the air ducts. 

This can cause the smell of cigarette smoke to spread throughout the whole house. If you have this problem, you'll need to enlist the help of duct cleaning services.

4. Consider the Attic

You should also consider the attic. Since smoke rises, smoke may get up into the attack. The smell can then linger for a long time since the attack is so difficult to clean. 

If you're trying to rid a house of smoke smell, ensure you don't neglect the attic. 

5. Buy an Air Purifier

Buying an air purifier is a great way to get the lingering cigarette smell out of your home. Air purifiers circulate air through a filter, resulting in cleaner, better-smelling air. 

While you can't just smoke in a room with an air purifier and expect there to be no smell, you can remove the lingering smell of smoke with one. 

6. Smoke Outside

The best way to remove the smell of cigarettes from a house is to have smokers only smoke outside. If you smoke inside the house, the scent will always linger for some time. 

Ideally, you should only smoke on the porch. If that isn't possible, you could at least smoke next to an open window. 

7. Use a Scent Diffuser

Finally, you might consider using a scent diffuser. Scent diffusers use essential oils to spread a pleasant smell throughout the house throughout the day. Scent diffusers are a great way to remove the smell of smoke from your home.

You can even buy a car scent diffuser to get cigarette smells out of your car. 

Now You Know More About Cigarette Odor Removal

So now you know more about cigarette odor removal. Of course, if you truly want to keep your home smelling fresh, you should avoid smoking inside at all. If you smoke inside, make sure you keep the place well ventilated.
