Not from within a home on its own and within a reasonable space of time, no. With all the places that a smoke smell will get embedded within a home, it takes a more active approach than just opening your windows, lighting candles, or spraying something nice-smelling.
Costs depend a great deal on the square footage of the house and how deeply embedded the smoke smell is. In the worst-case scenario, carpet and even drywall may need to be replaced. The reality is, smoke can embed itself in most anything, even grout. That’s why no Tri-Cities smoke odor removal service should attempt to give an estimate without a close look at your property.
The reason you smell anything is because particles are in the air and are therefore breathed in. If a house is smoke damaged, that means there are more smoke particles in the air than there should be. Without appropriate ventilation, this could be dangerous to be around for any particular length of time.
The only way to effectively remove the odor of smoke is to perform a complete deep-cleaning of everything in your home. Besides your personal effects, this includes flooring, walls, ceilings, and air ducts. A professional will methodically clean each of these and ventilate well to de-odorize a house.
If the question is can water be used to absorb a smoke smell, the answer is no, it is ineffective. The only way that water can absorb anything would be to dissolve it, and this would only work if the water was being constantly agitated. But still, this would not accomplish anything quickly.
Baking soda does have the ability to trap odors to a certain degree, but its effectiveness is found in maintaining a presence over a long period of time, absorbing minor odors. It is not effective for quickly absorbing something as permeating as smoke.
Particles causing odors need to be scrubbed off of the surface, as far as possible. Once this is done and proper ventilation can take place, the smell will essentially be as removed as possible. Don’t be fooled into thinking that you can paint over a smell. This will likely seem effective for a short time, but before long the smell will return as it was.
