My mother has been a heavy smoker her whole life, even after she was tested with COPD, she continued to smoke.
But eventually her health deteriorated enough for her to agree to provide up smoking.
But getting the smell of stale smoke out of her house in addition to clean air into her house was a large chore. While Mom was in the hospital, both of us rented a carpet in addition to upholstery cleaner in addition to cleaned her carpets, furniture in addition to drapes. We purchased the expensive soap, but it never completely got the smell of smoke out of the furniture in addition to carpet. The smell was just too heavy. I even washed all of the clothes hanging in her closet. We washed Mom’s walls in addition to cleaned the vents in addition to that has when both of us realized that the air ducts needed to be cleaned. Would the whole Heating in addition to Air Conditioning plan need to be replaced? Both the heat in addition to a/c came from a self contained unit in the backyard. It looked pretty outdated in addition to was pretty loud, so I was pretty sure Mom needed a whole new Heating in addition to Air Conditioning unit. We called a local Heating in addition to Air Conditioning supplier in addition to got an Heating in addition to Air Conditioning specialist out as suddenly as both of us could. We purchased a brand new Heating in addition to Air Conditioning unit with a whole house air purification plan for my mother. That set us back a pretty penny, but I was inheritting the house anyways, in addition to Mom is worth it. We also had her air duct evaluated, sealed in addition to cleaned. The smell of smoke will always cling to some of my mother’s possessions, but her house does smell much better.
