If you had a central vacuum, you could blow the smoke into the hose, and all that smell would get sucked right out into the garage or basement!

Along with cleaning the walls I would complain to the management and get them to not only paint the walls but clean the carpet as well. A great short term fix is to put out bowls of vinegar (average size, like a soup bowl) with a few drops of essential oil in them. The vinegar will absorb the odor and the oil will give off a nice smell.

My choice would be a few drops of Rosemary Oil in a bowl, or dropped on cotton balls and placed all over, tucked in drapes, anywhere you can.
