Tobacco & Cigarette Smoke Removal & Remediation

Equipment and supplies needed:
– Enough baking soda to cover the carpet or fabric upholstery you are treating
– Dry Lavender (optional)
– Home vacuum cleaner

6. Repeat as necessary.
7. If odors persists, recruit the big guns, and hire a professional to help.
