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.

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.

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.
