Tobacco Smoke will permeate carpet, draperies, bedding, and other "soft" materials, making it by far the hardest odor to eliminate. However, we can reclaim a space degraded by tobacco smoke by utilizing Our Odor Killing 3 Step Proprietary System.
Problem: Tobacco smoke or any smoke damage is very difficult to eliminate, because the source of the problem is gaseous, and has typically invaded every surface in a building. Because it is very difficult to physically clean every surface of a room with standard cleaning chemicals and mechanical methods, many people resort to "air fresheners" to mask the odor. Of course, this strategy is not only ineffective, it is also dangerous, because the "chemicals" in air fresheners include phthalates which are proven bad actors.
Solution: To eliminate tobacco smoke odor, we must close off the area to be treated and place our high output ozone generator in the room, set the timer, and let the ozone attack smoke odors at their source. Of course, the area must be vacant, (no People, Pets, or Plants), during the treatment. As a gas, ozone will follow the same path that the tobacco smoke took as it traveled through the building, so it can remove the smoke smell from soft materials such as carpets, clothing and upholstery. The length of the treatment depends upon the severity of the tobacco odor. If tobacco has only been used for a few days in the space, for example, it may take less than an hour; whereas if it has been used for years, it may take 24 hours. As always, we must allow the O3 to dissipate for at least 2 hours prior to re-occupying space.
