    What do you use to remove overall nicotine staining on carpet?

    Thought that was only a deodorizer.

    Have to try that. Just don't ever get Greased Lightning it has lye in it and is way too caustic for carpet cleaning.
    Krud cutter looks good though

    I've used other crud kuter products. I'll have to try that out Larry.

    I usually work on odors more than stains but never had trouble with tabac attack. I've watched stains just melt off walls when I spray them. Carpets always cleaned up well.

    your prespray is going to do a lot of suspending of soils and the nicotine and tar removal.

    We have seen where along the edges if a colder climate and home, you will get soil filtration of the nicotine and it can be hard to remove like any other soil filtration.

    You can sometimes scrub out those edges just on hands knees with a small brush, or rag...or carefully with a grout brush, but damage to the wall or baseboard is also a concern to deal with.

    If there is a brown stain of some nature, it is going to be a tannin stain and something of an oxidizer like our Just Like Magic, Stain Magic, Stain Zone....gosh I am trying to think of other company products here, but there are others that can be applied to oxidize out the stain as well.

    How do you use it Steve? As a standard prespray? Has the same ingredients as any prespray on the market.

    Prochem's Ultrapac Renovate is what we would use. It is free rinsing, No residue to be concerned with. We use it on walls and contents too. Simply an amazing product and very economical.

    Nice job. Wouldn't want to have to wash those walls. Pretty gross.

    I don't know everything ,Derick (i just think I do)
    but what do mean by "screened"??

    if a sanding screen, how would you address a textured ceiling ?
    (in a joint like Sam's pics, the ceiling gotta be dipping with nicotine too)

    thanks

    if I could talk the custy into replacing the carpet (I'd try, cause you'll never get all of the nicostink out by cleaning and deo) I'd bucket 'n bush on a Krud Kutter solution and pressure wash them with our baby 'lectric PW'er
    Then spray or roll Zensser BIN, then paint

    Any degreaser will sweat it out of vinyl paint. Flex works fine. I hose the wall, run a squeegee and recover at the baseboard. Twice, but the second time I use a microfiber mop. Then Saiger’s Cide on the popcorn ceiling and walls.

    The carpet is the same thing; Flex, rinse, Saiger’s Cide.
    Odor Attack is dadgum good too.

    I hate when people smoke when I clean

    They always get the smelliest deodorizer I can find to get even
