Why can't I get the cigarette smell out of my house?

The same nicotine in tobacco that stains your skin and teeth leaves dingy yellow stains on your walls, furniture, and carpet. Homes and apartments inhabited by indoor smokers often have brown or yellow stains and streaks on walls and furniture from the buildup of years of cigarette smoke. These homes often require the professional services of a specialty cleaning company to remove them completely rather than just cover them up. 

Cigarette smoke permeates every surface of a home. Smokers usually don't even notice the odor, while non-smoking guests are bombarded with the smell the moment they walk through the door. While many "do it yourself" remedies exist that tackle the problem at a surface level, nicotine stains are a unique issue - to completely rid a home of this very thick and set-in greasy type of stain, a specialized professional method is the only correct solution.

Professional methods include specific techniques and specialized professional products to clean your carpet, draperies, hard surfaces, furniture and walls and ceilings. After the thorough cleansing, a stain-blocking product is applied to prevent further toxic stain buildup.

If you have tried everything and still can't get the smell of cigarettes out of your house, Gator Clean can help! Find out more about our Nicotine Removal and Restoration service.

Easy tips to keep your carpet clean this Summer.

Warmer days are finally here. The sun is shining brighter and longer, the children are home from school, and the laid-back, relaxing feeling of summer fills the air.

Cost Factors in Cleaning the Air Ducts of a Florida Home.

The cost of maintaining a home can add up pretty fast. Unlike renting, homeowners are solely responsible for repairs and upkeep of the various parts of their house. Some maintenance issues are more pressing than others, leaving many problems to simmer on the back burner.
