Smoke Unit

How do I get rid of a strong smell in my apartment, whichs smells like cigaretts, and I don't smoke? Help!

We've lived there for more than 6 months and the smell is still the same!!! I think the previous people living there were smokers. I want to get rid of that oder. What should I do? I don't know if its the carpet. Any good suggestions on what to do or use? Thanks!!!

I probably is the carpet if the owner/management did not replace it. We, in SoCal, have to have designated smoking units and smoke-free, pet free units. It could also be the walls, although we paint after every renter, cigarette smoke is the most pervasive, stubborn odor I have ever come across, worse than curry which is bad.

In units that have had smokers, the chemicals in the cigarettes settle literally into every porous surface in the unit, including drywall, carpet and wood. The only thing I found in nearly 30 years of owning rentals that can eliminate cigarette odor is something called Krud Kutter. Used straight, it can remove it from woodwork, carpet, upholstery, walls and nearly anything.

Usually cigarette smoke penetrates as well. Landlords that think just steam cleaning or shampooing carpet is enough to eliminate it are mistaken. The smell is down to the padding and if there is a wood subfloor, that absorbs the odor, too.

Krud Kutter can be found in the cleaning aisle in the Lowes home improvement center. I would wash my walls, woodwork and carpet with it. I does work. You can't get rid of that smell with any traditional methods of odor removal like vinegar, baking soda, borax or activated charcoal. There are over 250 chemicals in cigarette smoke combining to comprise that odor and Krud Kutter is the only non-toxic, biodegradable, non chemical means I have found to neutralize the smell.
