James asked 6 years ago

We are moving to a home just over 2000 sq. ft, and a heavy smoker lived there before. Stinks to high heaven. Lots of recommendations on how to get rid of smell paint-wise (Kilz comes up a lot), but am wondering what suggestions this group has in this regard. We are removing and replacing all flooring as well.

Also, have painted before but it’s a big job so not sure I want to tackle it in a time-sensitive job – based on the square footage I’ve listed here, what should I expect for a labor quote to do this, that isn’t completely ridiculous? We are in the Spruce Grove area in Alberta.
