Why Should I Hire Professionals to Clean Smoke?

Why You Need Professionals to Remove Residual Cigarette Smoke

Cigarette smoke is left behind when indoor smokers move away or pass on. What is left behind is called ETS, or Environmental Tobacco Smoke. This residual smoke can result in lingering smells, residual allergens and health risks, and discoloration of surfaces. ETS can stick to or bind with furniture, plastics, fabrics, carpets, and walls, permanently altering their appearance.

Professional smoke removal services can eradicate the risk of exposure to secondhand smoke. The yellowish-brown, sticky substance that you see contains a combination of over 7,000 compounds, 40 of which are associated with cancer, according to the EPA (Environmental Protection Agency). Long-term smoke exposure indoors is similar to a fire in the damage it causes, but tobacco smoke damage is more difficult to remove than fire smoke.

What Do Professional Cleaners Do to Remove Smoke?

Our professional cleaners start by cleaning all surfaces including using deodorizing agents to remove tobacco smoke particles. Ozone or hydroxyl generators can remove odors that are not accessible with regular cleaning. They reach the residual smoke that has penetrated deep beyond the surface or is lingering behind molding, cabinets, and other unreachable spaces.

Once clean, professional restorative cleaners will typically use sealants applied over the surfaces as a precursor to painting or refinishing. This will depend on the extent of your restoration and your plan of action moving forward.
