Cleaning Nicotine (Cigarette Smoke) From Your Home

9/18/2017 (Permalink)

Nicotine removal from walls prior to painting.

A home occupied by smokers will collect nicotine residue on the walls and other surfaces. Cleaning and deodorizing a home that has tobacco stains can be a real nuisance. It can be time consuming if the stains are throughout the entire home. Heavy nicotine staining may also require priming and repainting. However, you cannot simply apply a coat of paint on top of the stains. The nicotine and tar will seep through. Cleansers that cut grease help cut through nicotine stains. 

Cleaning the entire home is key. It's important to include a deep cleaning of ceilings, walls, floors, trim, cabinets, doors, light fixtures... all structural material from top to bottom. Cleaning and Deodorization is one of the many services we offer. Call our office for more information or to schedule an estimate.
