Cigarette Smoke Odour Removal Services

Our 6-stage cigarette odour removal process can eliminate the smell of smoke from your property.

Did you know that a cigarette smoke odour can lower the value of your property by 29%?

The overpowering, stale smell of tobacco clings to surfaces, particularly fabric and upholstered furniture, and can last for many months before it goes away. The odour is caused by dangerous pollutants from cigarettes like nicotine and formaldehyde that settle onto the surfaces in your home and release harmful gases into the air.

Unfortunately, these pollutants are very hard to remove due to their small size and ability to penetrate deep into soft surfaces. Nicotine and tar can seep into the walls and ceilings, too, leaving behind tough, greasy stains which trap in the odour.

As the UK's most trusted odour removal specialists, we can help. Simply call us on 0208 066 0360 or send your details to enquiries@icecleaning.co.uk to find out more.

How does smoking inside affect a property’s value?

If you are buying or selling a house, you should deal with lingering cigarette odours promptly. Potential buyers, particularly non-smokers, are likely to be unimpressed with bad smells.

Similarly, if you have just bought a property, the odour may ruin your enjoyment of it and will put your health at risk.

 

What is thirdhand smoke?

Thirdhand smoke consists of all the pollutants released by cigarettes settling in your home. It contains harmful substances including nicotine as well as cancer-causing chemicals. These chemicals undergo an aging process which then produces dangerous compounds which are constantly re-emitted back into the air.

Although the effects of inhaling these hazardous gases and ingesting thirdhand smoke particles are still being researched, studies suggest there is a link between thirdhand smoke and lung cancer. Children are especially vulnerable to the effects of thirdhand smoke as they breathe in more than adults and may put their hands in their mouth after touching contaminated surfaces.

 

How to get rid of cigarette smell in house

To remove the odour, you need to remove all the thirdhand smoke particles in the property as well as any nicotine and tar stains. This will require specialist cleaning chemicals and equipment to tackle the particles that have sunk deep into porous surfaces and cut through the greasy stains.

Although some claim bringing in fresh air, deep cleaning surfaces with white vinegar, and using air fresheners can remove the smoke odour, these methods will not get rid of all the particles and should just cover the smell. You may be able to temporarily mask it, but eventually the odour will become too pungent to deal with.

Without professional odour removal services, you could even end up causing more damage to the affected areas without removing the smell. Our odour neutralisation experts will give you peace of mind that the smell will be completely eliminated.

 

We provide odour removal services for domestic and commercial properties

Using state-of-the-art ozone technology, our qualified experts can get rid of smoke odours and transform your property into a clean, safe environment. They will also use a specialist odour neutralisation foam to wash away the nicotine and tar stains coating your property.

Whatever the size or type of your building, we have a solution for you. Our technicians have years of experience in the field and will work hard to restore your property to a safe environment.

 

Our technicians are fully qualified

All of our on-site technicians have undergone a range of professional training courses in order to be able to handle even the most complex of situations. This includes training specifically in odour elimination.

With the correct health and safety precautions in place, there is no reason for harm to come to our technicians or our customers.

Some of our industry-recognised accreditations include:

  • IOSH 
  • Safe Contractor


How to prevent a cigarette smoke odour in your home

If you want to smoke in your home, there are certain measures you can take to reduce the build-up of smoke odour, such as ventilating your environment, running air purifiers through each room and storing items in sealed closets.

Removing the stench from your building may seem like an impossible task, but with access to the correct equipment and a professional cleaning company, it can easily be achieved.
 

Why smoking makes people smell of cigarettes

Cigarette smoke leaves behind a carcinogenic residue on your hair and skin. The strength of this odour will depend on a variety of factors, such as how often you smoke and how much you sweat. 

The absorption of nicotine has a knock-on effect on your sweat glands; it makes you sweat more and can even change the smell of your sweat. This means that if you’re prone to sweating a considerable amount, your skin may soon begin to smell like cigarette smoke.

As well as your hair and skin, cigarette smoke will cover the inside of your mouth, affecting your gums, teeth and tongue. 

 

How to avoid smelling of cigarette smoke

  • Wear long layers of clothing to prevent the smoke particles coming into contact with your body while you smoke. If you cannot cover up, you should make an extra effort to regularly cleanse your hands and face.
  • Rinse and repeat if your hair smells like tobacco, or use dry shampoo.
  • To improve the smell of your breath, invest in a travel-size toothbrush for cleaning your teeth on the go and stock up on breath mints, gum and cough sweets.
