Smoke damage in 1913 house
My husband and I have a 1913 Queen Anne style home under contract. It's currently divided up into four apartments and a total disaster. There was a fire in the lower level of the house and the house still reeks. My H and I are going to have the house gutted to the studs and then will have the areas of damage replaced and/or sprayed with shellac. Will this be enough to eliminate the smell?
