removing smoke smell from a house

Has anyone ever tried to get the smoke smell out of a house where people had been smoking indoors?

I've got a rental house and my tenants of 2.5 years are moving out. The big surprise for me is I found out they've been smoking inside (were not supposed to) and now I'll have to get rid of the smoke smell before I rent it out again.

My current plan is to wash down the walls, ceiling, and kitchen cabinets. Then if it's still around, paint over everything with Kilz and repaint over that.

Has anyone had to do this and if so, what did you do, was it successful? Is it better to hire a smoke remediation company, or are they going to do the same stuff and charge a bunch for it?

Success to me is walking into the house and not being able to tell it was smoked in. That may not be realistic though.

Renting to someone with no sense of smell might be a plan as well?

Yeah, jokes aside I thought about that. Thing is, it seems like a lot of smokers don't actually smoke in their house.

If they are renting they will. It isn't theirs....

Also you will need to determine if the smoke permeated the hardwood floor sheen. Cigarette smoke lingers and can dull a hardwood floor and cabinetry. It will come clean but takes some elbow grease in severe cases. Did some of the in-laws house after my mother in-law quit. Floors and cabinets were coated in it. But she was a pack or two a day habit.

It really depends on the severity of it. If it is only slight, a fresh coat of paint and cleaning the carpets should be enough. If it's heavy the best way is to Kilz the walls and ceilings, then paint.

I'm hoping that once they clear all their stuff out it won't be too bad. I'm sure a lot of the smell is held in their furniture and other soft things. I don't think they smoked in their the entire 2.5 yrs either. The last time I was in the house before discovering the smoke was about a year ago and I didnt notice anything then.
