Here is some information that can help you deal with bad odors. If you have any questions, feel free to contact us through email, text or call! This service must include the interior detail to help remove smoke odor or any other odor.
It all depends on the condition of the car. We always ask the following questions to better understand the situation: how long was it smoked in? How much was smoked in it? Is the smoke odor very strong?
The amount of odor that can be removed, depends on the condition. If the car was heavily smoked, then it is unlikely for the entire odor to come out because the nicotine, and tobacco have "drenched" the car's fabric materials which trap in the odor. Therefore, you would want to have the car thoroughly cleaned to reduce the amount smoke.
We have done several vehicles with smoke odors, and we have been able to reduce the odor dramatically.
It is a long process but we first start off by removing everything out of the car. We pre-treat all the carpets, and fabric with our specific cleaners. We agitate and then extract everything with out hot water extractor to lift the smoke out. We clean the plastic and leather with specific products to help eliminate tobacco odors. At the end, we apply an ozone generator to eliminate or reduce odors.
Yes we do use an ozone generator. It is a better option than using a "smoke bomb" that you can buy from any store. These "smoke bombs" usually just neutralize the odor for a few days, but does not help eliminate the odor which is why it usually starts coming back.
It is recommended to replace this filter since you will be using your heater/air-conditioner most of the time. If you turn on our AC after having your car cleaned, then all that smoke odor trapped in your air filter will go back into your car.
If the odor is still present after it has been cleaned, then there is still tobacco or nicotine present. Therefore, we would have to start from the beginning to make sure everything is cleaned properly.
You would have to drop off the car to us so that we can properly monitor our ozone generators and have everything we need to get the job done right.
An odor bomb will neutralize or "mask" the smell for a couple of days to weeks. If the source of nicotine or tobacco is present within the carpets, seats, headliner, or mats then the smell will continue to her an issue no matter how many "smoke bombs" you use. It is important to eliminate the source of tobacco/nicotine first.
