Odor removal experts are often asked how to rid homes and facilities of the persistent odors left by tobacco and cannabis smokers. Heavy smoking over a long period of time causes stubborn and severe smoke odors.
Simple deodorizing won’t work – smoke penetrates crevices and cavities and thus requires a process that also penetrates those same spaces. Also, when sticky tobacco residues accumulate, the resulting film on interior building surfaces continually release malodors.
Use a HEPA Air Scrubber
When removing odors, use a Dri-Eaz® HEPA 700 air scrubber with an activated carbon filter to aid in removing volatile organic compounds (VOCs), including tobacco, cannabis or other noxious odors.
