I'm guessing with a good cleaning and a coat of paint it will be fine. The Kilz is only necessary in extreme cases, like when you can see white where the pictures were on the wall and it's Harvest Gold all around it.

At the end of the day, most people have two arms.

Show up before you show to renters

Spray a bunch of this shit

Have them sign the lease

Now theres some good advice, don't forget about the air ducts and air filter.

Was the not smoking in the lease? If so I would charge them for the cleaning.

Throw away or wash the curtains, if there are any.

Rent some Ozone machines, close the doors and windows, and let them run for as long as it takes.

I'm keeping the security deposit because they are breaking the lease so I have some money available for it, but I'm not going to get much more out of them. Nearly had to evict them, and getting any judgement against them would cost about as much as I'd get and be a huge pain in the ass.
