Effective Ways to Eliminate the Smell of Marijuana and Paint Over Marijuana Smoke in Your Home

Marijuana Smoke Odor Removal

We are all sensitive to scents. Our brain process smells in a way that connects this sense most strongly with memory and emotion. No matter how a home appears, it will not feel appealing when it is filled with unwanted odors, especially where you need to remove the smoke from marijuana. Whatever your opinion of marijuana use, and whatever the laws are in your area, the smell of marijuana is pungent and recognizable. How can you treat your home or property to eliminate the lingering smell of marijuana?  Damage from marijuana smoke can devalue our properties and make spending time indoors less pleasant. With a proactive approach, you can effectively treat current marijuana smoke damage and prevent further damage in the future.

Understand the damage marijuana smoke causes.

There is a widespread misconception that marijuana smoke is less harmful than tobacco smoke, but an increasing body of research shows that the effects of second-hand marijuana smoke can be as damaging as tobacco smoke in enclosed spaces. This may translate into negative health repercussions for children and others sensitive to its effects as well as a lingering residue that permeates all the surfaces of a home. Though scented sprays and other treatments may be temporarily mask underlying odors, you cannot count on these to treat underlying smoke damage long-term. Understanding of the severity of the problem is your first step toward effectively managing it.

During and after smoking, the smoke will end up traveling to other rooms and getting trapped on your walls….this will cause a very dangerous condition called “thirdhand smoke” where toxic brew of gases and particles clinging to smokers’ hair and clothing, not to mention cushions and carpeting, that lingers long after secondhand smoke has cleared from a room. You’ve seen the long-term impact of thirdhand smoke your entire life: yellowed walls!

According to a poll conducted by Marist College in New York, 52 percent of all Americans have tried marijuana some time in their lives. Additionally, more states are adding marijuana to their taxable income by making it legal medically. This is advantageous in some medical communities, but causes a serious issue in others, such as for those who must clean the lingering odor from the room. The part of the plant that provides that distinct smell is the terpenes, which holds onto the paint on the walls and the fibers of the carpet.

Cleaning Up the Carpets 

Grab some baking soda for the carpets. Sprinkle it over the whole carpet and allow it to sit for a few days. Return and vacuum the carpet. The smell should noticeably dissipate. If it stays, renting a professional steam cleaner may finish lifting the odor. Typically, this process should only require one treatment to make a noticeable difference.

The terpenes in the cannabis plant get into everything, lingering and creating an unpleasant stale smell. When treating the walls, the floor and ceiling must also be treated to ensure the smell is completely pulled out of the room. These simple hacks will work most of the time in helping a room smell clean.

Wherever you are going to smoke, always remember it is best to have a consistent flow of air; like a door or window open and the fans blowing. Getting rid of the smell as it’s produced can help later with the lingering smell of marijuana.

Address marijuana smoke damage and prevent future damage.

Just as with tobacco smoke damage, treatment begins with a deep cleaning. This will entail laundering and shampooing fabric items with an eye toward possible replacement of furniture or carpeting that is beyond repair.  Smoke coats every surface, and penetrates walls and ceilings, so be sure to thoroughly clean before repainting.

Before beginning house renovations or painting the interior of your home, you will want to scrub the walls with some all-purpose cleaner as to remove marijuana smoke residue from them before you begin painting so no marijuana smell or residue is trapped. If there is a place where the marijuana smoke or smell is active, you may want to wipe down the surface with some alcohol which picks the sticky residue right up and gives the affected surface a nicer, clean, smell.

NOTE: this is a massive task!

Marijuana Smoke Can Stain Walls Quickly

When people smoke anything indoors, the smoke doesn’t just magically disappear. Instead, it floats to the walls and the ceiling and settles there. Once it settles, its detritus will stain the walls. That’s why so many old bars have yellowed ceilings. Unfortunately, these clinging leftovers will also generate a potent smell.

In some instances, the lingering smell of marijuana can last for years. Even if the person who smoked marijuana moved out of your home, that stench will remain as a reminder of their bad habits. In some instances, these smells may even influence visiting police officers to assume you are smoking marijuana and may lead to some legal complications. As a result, getting rid of that smell is crucial.
