Odour Removal Question from chris

Submitted on 24/01/2010

hi, i have bought a used car that smells a little of smoke. can you please advise on how long and perhaps more importantly how much it would cost to get rid of it once and for all? many thanks chris Model: bmw 3 series


We would need your car for pretty much a whole day.  You could leave it overnight, if you wanted to do it that way, we could try it with an our overnight driers, which are better than the one hour dry.
We need to completely clean the interior of the car with an odour kill product which kills the smell of smoke.  Then we will need to Fog the car which gets to the areas that we can't get to, as an example, under the dash, in the ventilation system, the springs under the seats, etc.  We also ozone the car which does the same thing but in a different way. 

I would suggest you could call us and go through the options of valet.  Then we can give you the price. If you then want to you can then book in.
  However, something like one in ten will need redoing. As the source is not always obvious when the whole car smells (we call you after a week to find out, then if the problem is still there, we don't charge for the second time) then one in ten of those will need to be re-done, (that's one in a hundred) this time removing parts (for this we have to charge an hourly rate)  you may want to have a look at this page to see what I mean.
