Housing

Would you move into a house previously owned by a smoker?

Say the previous owner smoked inside and there was heavy smoke smell throughout. Not sure how easy it would be to get it out if the walls/carpet etc.

    We did. Change the floors. Strip the paint down and paint over it.

    If it costs less than the value of the land. Of course, "moving in" means tearing it down and rebuilding a new home

    Buying or Renting, if renting you can always get other options, if buying and the price is good, go for it and do what others have suggested

    Ozone generators also help

      Just be careful with it. Ozone is an incredibly toxic gas. You don’t want to be in there with a whole bunch of ozone.

      Also it eats rubber so be careful with seals on ovens etc

      There are numerous articles on how ozone is not healthy and effective. Don’t follow blindly

    No. Dont do it. Third hand smoking is a major health risk which is magnified for kids and pets. However many treatments you do, you will never be able to remove it 100%. No house is above health.

    My mom smoked in her house for 20 years. She would send us cookies and they would just reek with smoke, we'd have to throw them all away. After she left we had to rip out the carpet and redo all the drywall because the odor wouldn't come out with cleaning.

    Definitely not. Nothing gets the smoke out.

    Steam the carpets. Burn candles, done that and it takes out the odor.
    Basically, oxidizing the odor creating substances removed the odor. Probably there would be some room de-odorants that spray oxidizing agents.
