If the smell of smoke is still lingering in your home and on your furniture, there’s no need to panic – after a long period of smoking indoors, or after food is burnt, it can take a while to dissipate. There are many other strategies to give the smell that final push out of your home forever. Here are our top 7 ways to get rid of smoke smell:
- Use an odour eliminator. Rather than covering up the smell, these products can help remove it entirely, and are particularly good for blitzing furniture. Always ventilate the affected area before and after to get the best results, and read the instructions on the label.
- Install an air purifier. Air purifiers help remove contaminants from the air. These devices are an excellent way to keep you from smelling smoke constantly, and they also help shift dust and dirt. Make sure that you follow any directions in the owner’s manual.
- Clean your carpets. Carpets tend to absorb odour, making this method one to keep in mind when you’re considering how to get rid of smoke smells in a carpeted room. You can either opt for commercial carpet cleaners that you can use yourself, or choose a professional cleaning service for a slightly higher price. Make sure that you follow any directions in the owner’s manual.
- Clean any glass and mirrors. Glass and mirrors actually attract a great amount of cigarette smoke. Wash the surfaces with vinegar, and then follow up by rinsing them down with water. You are advised to test a small, inconspicuous area first. You can also use a glass cleaner – just follow the instructions on the label and test a small area first.
- Wash any fabric in the room. Smoke lingering in fabric, whether it be a curtain or a sofa cover, can be extremely off-putting and even rather nauseating to come into contact with. Washing these either by hand or in the washing machine is a great way to eliminate the smell of smoke, substantially reducing the presence of lingering ash or particles causing the odour. Remember to check the label of any fabric item for washing advice – many, but not all, fabrics are machine washable.
- Charcoal is an affordable option for removing smoke smells in your home. You can either lay them out on a steady surface around your home or hang them up in pouches to attract the smell of smoke.
- Re-upholster furniture. If you’re not planning on smoking inside again, and have a little extra cash to splash, re-upholstering your furniture will automatically get rid of smoky smells caught in the fabric.
