15 Years of Smoke Buildup

Our local housing authority had problems cleaning up after a tenant left the apartment. Not only did the tenant leave behind all of their possessions, including, furniture, clothes, and food, but also over 15 years of cigarette smoke on the walls and ceilings.

Before any cleaning could be started, all the contents had to be removed. There was literally nothing that could be saved from the apartment. The years of neglect and abuse left nothing to be salvaged. Once everything was out, the real work could begin.

Starting with the ceiling and then working down the walls was a tedious task. A twice folded 12" x 12" towel could be used to make 8 separate passes at the tarred accumulation. The process was very time-consuming but was done proficiently and professionally. We definitely left the apartment smelling and looking better than we found it. The property manager was pleased and we are now looking at cleaning more apartments for him.

You can count on us for any Smoke and Odor issues.
