Eliminating cigarette smoke odor from homes is a common problem our service division performs. Consequently, we have extensive experience and knowledge as to the correct application methods of SCOE 10X.
We use high-pressure spray equipment similar to an airless paint spraying machine. (airless paint sprayers can be rented at most tool rental centers) The long hose gives much greater freedom to move from room to room while the high pressure produces a very small droplet that has better coverage and penetration. We use 513 spray tips on our spray machines.
The high-pressure spray is the only application method we recommend for cigarette smoke. No other application method atomizes SCOE 10X sufficiently to treat cigarette smoke odor.
Application rates are estimated at 150 sf of floor area per gallon of diluted SCOE 10X or 300 sf of surface area per diluted gallon of SCOE 10X. Dilute SCOE 10X at a 1 part SCOE 10X to 9 parts lukewarm water. Wait 20 minutes for ingredient activation before application.
Spray all surfaces (ceilings, walls, floors, inside cabinets, etc.) with enough SCOE 10X that surfaces remain moist for 20 minutes. This is not a real heavy coat. There should not be any runs or drips.
After 20 minutes, wipe dry all smooth floor and cabinet surfaces.
For personal safety, always wear a paper mask and goggles or a full-face respirator when high-pressure spraying SCOE 10X.
The method for eliminating cigarette smoke from a car is nearly the same as the method for eliminating cigarette odor from a house. The high-pressure spray is the only recommended method of application for a car's interior. Wagner Power Painters and airless paint spraying machines producing at least 32 oz. per minute volume (0.25 gpm) with pressure over 2,500 psi works the best.
Spray all surfaces with enough diluted SCOE 10X that surfaces remain moist for 20 minutes. If surfaces are hot and SCOE 10X is evaporating or drying before 20 minutes has passed, re-apply before the SCOE 10X dries.
After 20 minutes, wipe all smooth surfaces dry. SCOE 10X is safe to use on any material including leather.
32 oz's of diluted SCOE 10X will treat a compact car. Our service division usually uses between 1/2 to 1 gallon of diluted SCOE 10X per vehicle.
More severe cigarette odor residue may need more SCOE 10X or second treatment.
