nicotine smoke on wall SERVPRO using "Wall and all"

Cigarette smoke contains a variety of chemicals, some cling and build up on surfaces that are exposed to it. In your home, cigarette smoke can build up on walls, curtains, ceilings, etc...... 

Besides clinging to walls, curtains and other household items, cigarette smoke can also cling to electronic components (especially computers) and have disastrous effects over time. For example, with computers, the smoke will cling to anything that’s emitting heat like fans and processors. This heat already attracts dust but the dust just magnifies when you add cigarette smoke to the mix. Also, cigarette smoke carries moisture with it and can lead to both a corrosion of parts and a dangerous build-up of dust. Not only are cigarettes bad for your belongings and walls it is bad for your health.

In this picture you can see the before and after with us using "wall and all" to clean the smoke off the wall. Big Difference.
