Nicotine/Odor Removal

Updated: Mar 19

Have you recently quit smoking? Does your interior have a weird smell?

Did you know that a basic steam detailing will not fully take care of the odor? There's more to it than a little scrubbing.

Any professional will sanitize your interior after it is cleaned. Not all cleaners sanitize! And steam has to sit in small areas for much longer than deemed safe for automotive interior plastics, leather, and fabric in order to kill most microorganisms. Below is a photo showing our sanitizing agent dwelling on a door panel after it has been steamed cleaned.

No matter how well an interior is detailed, an ozone treatment is needed to remove any airborne pollutants. This process takes anywhere from 2-4 hours.

Ozone is comprised of three oxygen atoms, the third of which binds to pollutants and odors, and removes them from the air. When you fill a space with ozone, you can remove odors and mold spores from the air.

One of the most powerful ways to remove smoke smell from a car is using an ozone generator.

That was just one part of a proper odor removal detail service.

Now, we can scrub every inch of an interior, and do our ozone treatment, but one key component to removing odors from your investment is by changing out the cabin air filter.

This trifecta of odor removing solutions will ensure your vehicle will be back to smelling like new again!
