Your New Home Has An Old Problem

6/12/2019 (Permalink)

When you looked at dream home you didn't notice the smell. Now the dream home is all yours, including the cigarette smell from the previous owner.
The smell of cigarette smoke can penetrate throughout a home and give it a stale smell. Regardless of the reason behind your cigarette removal need, home deodorization is high on your list of priorities. If you have allergies or asthma, cigarette smoke can be especially irritating.
This is not something that you will want to take on yourself. The odor can be difficult to remove. This is because cigarettes leave behind
• Toxic and irritating gases
• Tar vapors
• Smoke residue
Cigarettes produce toxic and irritating gases such as phenol, ammonia gases and carbon monoxide. They also release tar vapors that become sticky. These vapors, residues and gases are able to travel everywhere. Ozone, or O3, is one of the few home deodorization techniques that actually works to combat this. That is because an ozone generator eliminates odor by oxidizing the air. The oxidized air is circulated through the air just as smoke is and so is able to get to all the places cigarette smoke does, effectively getting rid of the smelly residue.
