    To removed cigarette smell, especially if it was someone living there smoking, you have to paint and wash everything down. Paint the walls, shampoo the carpets, scrub all the solid areas, and wash all the drapes, etc. If there were other objects (not just empty rooms) then everything in that room will need to be wiped down. We use Simple Green for deodorizing and disinfecting everything as it is non toxic.

    We once stayed in a motel that the room reeked of smoke, upon complaining, they put an OZONE GENERATOR, in the room while we went to dinner. Solved the issue. I THINK someone had just smoked in a no smoking room, much different than living in a house smoking all the time, but possibly worth a try.

    Buy or rent an Ozone machine. Works like magic.

    Try wiping down furniture, washable walls, floors, etc. with white vinegar. Also, try placing several bowls of vinegar around the room with the smoke damage, leaving them there for several days. If you can't stand the smell of vinegar, try mixing a bit of lavender oil into the bowls to help cut the odor of the vinegar.
