Nicotine smell

Posted by Nick Kir, on
I recently bought a new house but has lingering nicotine smells, the house has been redecorated and the sellers repainted and decorated but it is still there. I have tried advice i found on the internet and removed and cleaned everything again including behind radiators. Is there an odour blocker that works? Grateful for any advice..

Dear Nick If house have had been redecorated and tou still have a smell of nicotine please try to wash all carpets if you have wall paper I am affraid that you will need to remove old wall paper and paper again. Nicotine go everywere if house had a heavy smokers who never open windows it would need skimming I am affraid. Best regards Rafal
