One of our biggest hesitations in buying this house was that the garage absolutely reeked of cigarette smoke.
We aren’t smokers and didn’t want to park our cars in a smelly garage.
We weren’t sure how to get the cigarette smell out of the garage. We hadn’t dealt with this problem before.
Cigarette smoke isn’t something you can get rid of by leaving the garage door open for fresh air or spraying some air freshener.
It smelled BAD.
We had our contractor check it out before we even put in an offer on the house.
He assured us he could get the smoke smell out, and he did.
He used an ozone generator in the garage for three days. The ozone gets into every hole and crevice in the walls, eliminating the smoke smell.
Next, two coats of paint went up on the garage walls.
After this, the smell was completely gone.
We were thrilled!
And luckily, our garage is detached from our house, so the smell had been contained to the garage and hadn’t ever spread to the house.
Have you had to get a smell – cigarette, pets, whatever – out of a space? How’d you do it?
