Painting the walls, scrubbing floors and bathroom/kitchen tiles, also if there is carpet it should canada goose coats on sale canada goose outlet black friday be cleaned professionally (landlord should pay for that).
What kind of smell? Where is it localized?

i never Canada Goose Parka tried canada goose outlet new york city this, but someone once told me that putting charcoal briquettes in strategic spots will absorb odors. Easier than painting, and if it doesn’t work, you’re only out a few bucks.

Baking soda. Dust everything with baking soda (well, whereever it can be easily cleaned up). My friends moved into a house that the previous residents left in a really disgusting and smelly state. Along with elbow grease and lots of scrubbing with bleach, we threw baking soda all over the worst smelling canada goose outlet rooms dusted the closets with it and closed them with an open box, dusted the walls with it, everything. Works like a charm. You can get canada goose uk black friday boxes of baking cheap canada goose soda that have tear off vents on the side designed for the de smelling purpose.

Go to a Starbucks and get some of those free bags of “coffee grounds for your garden.” Open them up buy canada goose jacket cheap around the house. They suck in odors and should make things better.
On another note, I read once in a Douglas Coupland book that supposedly the smell of cinnamon will cover any other smell. Not sure if it’s true but thought I’d add it.

She may want to check if there is any kind of mold growing in damp spots behind canada goose outlet in usa or in the walls; that not only smells bad but can affect her health. Also, carpets are odour traps. Even professional cleaning might not solve the problem, though replacing them certainly will.

I had a smoke problem in an apartment I had moved https://www.baertakreation.de into and I just sprayed Febreze on all the walls liberally (the carpet had already been replaced). A week later the annoying Febreze fragrance was gone, and so was the tobacco smell.

I second the painting idea. I know that at least some Home Depots will add an anti fungal compound to your primer for free.
