Getting Rid of Smoke Odor
Whether from cigars, cigarettes, or fire damage, living in a home permeated with the scent of smoke is quite a nuisance, and many people think it is impossible to remove. However, there are some strategies you may not be aware of. Air purifiers are a must for smokers who prefer to keep the associated smell out of their homes.
Smoke particles adhere to all surfaces, including walls, ceilings, floors, and furniture. One popular remedy is to wash surfaces with rags soaked in vinegar, or leaving open bowls of vinegar around the affected areas. For carpet, try sprinkling the area with baking soda and vacuuming it the next day. Air fresheners are often the first thing people try, but these simply mask the odor with strong fragrances which will dissipate with ventilation, leaving smoke particles behind. You have come to the right place to find the best air purifier for smoke and odor.

Air Purifiers for Smokers
Ozone generators are effective in removing smoke odor, but Ozone is a lung irritant and can cause health issues - we do not recommend them. Some Ionizers produce Ozone as a byproduct, and we always recommend looking for a solution involving minimal Ozone. If you are dealing with smoke odor, look for an air purifier that uses charcoal-based activated Carbon filters. Whereas HEPA filters are more targeted toward particles, activated Carbon filters are designed to treat chemicals and odors. Some machines use both of these filters. We have compiled the best air purifiers for removing smoke.
