Nicotine / Smoke Removal – ‘third-hand smoke’

Realtors and home buyers: Don’t turn away from the almost perfect home just because a ‘smoker’ resided there.

We can remove that odor with our special process.

We all know that smoking is unhealthy and it leaves an odor behind.  Just cleaning the surfaces will not remove the remnants left behind from a smoker.  The fact is that nicotine is very tacky/sticky. This residue is left behind on walls, ceilings and the inside of the HVAC. Because it is so sticky, the particles that would otherwise circulate through the system will accumulate inside the duct work.  Think of this as ‘third-hand smoke.’

Smoke odor removal requires an aggressive approach and there are several angles which need to be covered.

A molecule of nicotine can remain in suspension for up to 6 months! The team at AQC can set up an Electronic air purification that not only removes the odor but also ‘breaks it down on a molecular level.
Our process will make a smoker’s home odor free.  For businesses, such as hotels, we can remove the
lingering odor from that ‘non-smoking’ room that someone ignored.
