Your carpet acts like a sponge that absorbs noises and impacts, creating a comfortable environment in your home. Unfortunately, this advantage can also be inconvenient, since your carpet can also absorb unpleasant odors like cigarette smoke.

It doesn’t matter whether you just recently moved into a new home or you had smokers visiting over the weekend; at Valley Cleanpro in Arizona we have a simple method that will get rid of that cigarette odor lingering in your carpet. CleanThe first step is removing the stale air indoors and you can achieve that by opening doors and windows or using a box fan. Also, remember to clean your upholstery, wash your curtains and, if possible, wash the walls with soap and water.

Keep in mind that air fresheners are just a temporary solution that won’t get rid of the problem.

What to Use?

Baking soda is a powerful chemical compound that absorbs malodorous smells and it’s our main weapon against that lingering smoke odor, so you will need several boxes of it. Sprinkle it over your carpet generously, but remember that once you do this you shouldn’t step on the area for at least 8 hours, so plan this method over a long weekend or holiday.

Vacuum

Now that you are back, simply use your vacuum cleaner to remove the baking soda. Once the cleaning bag reaches over half its capacity it will become less efficient - so make sure to keep an eye on its levels and change the bag when needed.

It’s that easy! These simple ideas will bring back the tidy environment you want in your home. Also, be sure to read this post containing some signs that it’s time for a carpet update.
