How can I eliminate the effects of third-hand smoke?
Unknown to us, a tenant smoked heavily for a number of years in the room he rented from us. His life was saved when an ambulance rushed him to the ER, but now we are left with walls impregnated with the chemicals of third-hand smoke. After weeks of airing out, the smell is gone, but the walls remain tinted a nicotine-brown and may still be dangerous.
Research on the internet confirms that this is a danger, but has not yielded a method of eliminating the effects.
Any advice will be appreciated.
