Nevertheless, other rooms may not be so welcoming. Always remember that house pungency is number one on the home selling list. And tightening it down, odors from pets and cigarette smoke can affect the buying decision of your potential client. If you happen to smoke indoors you cannot easily smell it, but your buyer probably will. Eliminate the odors by thoroughly cleaning the drapers, carpets, and any other fluffy surfaces.
