Removing Smoke Smell After a FireBefore you going treating the indoor air in your home, you want to make sure that you address the source of the odor and neutralize that before moving any further in the cleaning process. If your carpeting contains smoke odors then you will need to have them cleaned. You can save money on hiring a professional cleaning company by cleaning the carpets in your home. All you will need to get this project done is OdorKlenz Source Odor treatment and a hot water extractor if you do not have an extractor you can easily rent one at your local hardware store. Lightly dampen the carpet and apply the OdorKlenz Source treatment to the areas that need cleaning and allow for 10-15 minutes of contact time. After the 15 minutes has elapsed come behind with the extractor and extract out any remaining residual from the carpeting. You will want to ensure that you allow the carpet to fully dry which typically can take from 5-10 hours to before they are ready. For surface cleaning, you may also use OdorKlenz source treatment to safely and effectively remove smoke smell from your homes surfaces. For mild odors, you may dilute the product in a spray bottle in a 4:1 ratio and spray the areas that have been affected by the smoke smell. Allow for 10-15 minutes of contact time then come behind and wipe off any residual that was left behind. You may repeat this process if you missed an area or notice that there are still odors present.
How to remove smoke smell from clothingIf you are not separating your dirty laundry from the smokers of your home then chances are that your clothes are being contaminated with the smoke odors as well.Traditional laundry detergents are not designed to remove smoke odors or smoke smells but rather mask them with masking agents or fragrances.Just add OdorKlenz laundry additive along with your normal detergent to the clothes that have been affected by the smoke smell and wash in a normal or heavy cycle. For larger loads, it is important that you follow the manufacturer suggested amount to apply to your wash and ensure that there is adequate water being supplied to your wash. Once done your clothes will come out of the wash smelling clean and odor free and you may also use OdorKlenz laundry additive on all your washable items such as linens, clothing, blankets and comforters.
How To Get Smoke Smell Out of HouseNow that you have covered the surfaces and contents in your home it is now time to mitigate the indoor air pollutants that are present from the tobacco and smoke odors. The best and most effective means of whole home filtration is to insert an OdorKlenz HVAC filter into your existing HVAC system or furnace filter. The filter just replaces your normal filter and will do the particulate removal that a normal filter does but will also take care of corrosive odors such as tobacco odors and smoke smells that are present in your home. So while your unit is being run the OdorKlenz HVAC filter is hard at work taking in the odors and neutralizing them as they pass through the filter.Unlike using a carbon filter or activated charcoal filter, the OdorKlenz HVAC filter will break down the chemical odors at the source and prevent them from being emitted back into the environment and does so without releasing any fragrances, masking agents, or harmful chemical into the air. Filters can be made to fit any size unit and under normal use can last 3-5 months.

"A basement was filled with 1-inch deep sewage. The smell was the worst I’ve experienced in my history with ServiceMaster Clean. The air scrubber with an OdorKlenz-Air Cartridge ran for 3 hours. We met the Customer upstairs and to their satisfaction and our surprise, the odor was gone. It far outperforms any other filter. It just works." Don-⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ "A meat-based casserole was accidentally left baking in the oven of a large 2-story home. It remained there continuing to burn for several hours. Two air scrubbers with OdorKlenz-Air Cartridges were placed in the home… After only 45 minutes, I could not smell a trace of the horrible protein smoke damage. The homeowners were thrilled to be able to re-enter their home to check belongings. I knew instantly that this was what I’d use for all of my odor damage jobs."
