Nicotine Removal From Ceiling and Walls

Nicotine buildup is caused from residences smoking inside the home over a period of time. Removing nicotine from the walls and ceilings of a home is crucial when trying to remove a smoke odor by deodorizing a home. For example, if you were to just paint over nicotine coated walls, the smell would still remain strong as it would just bleed through the paint over time. Nicotine is an oil base, so heavy degreasers and cleaning agents are needed when cleaning. Sometimes it also will take numerous applications to fully remove the stain.

For professional assistance with deodorization, call SERVPRO of North Rensselaer/South Washington Counties at (518)677-3444.
