Will an air filter help with smoke?
If you’re looking for an air purifier that will eliminate cigarette smoke, you’re out of luck. Tobacco smoke is made up of gaseous pollutants and particulate matter. Most air purifiers, also called air cleaners, aren’t designed to remove gaseous pollutants.
Do HEPA air filters remove smoke?
Mechanical filters that use a HEPA filter (one that has been tested and proven to remove 99.97 percent of all particles that are 0.3 microns in diameter) can be very effective against particulate pollutants. They will remove the visible “smoke” elements of cigarette smoke and may slightly reduce the smell.
What absorbs the smell of smoke?
White vinegar cuts through odors naturally. 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.
