After a home fire, your entire home will be covered in soot. Even if you can completely remove soot and salvage items in your home, they may still smell like smoke. Your home can also smell like smoke if someone smokes cigarettes inside the home. You can remove these smoke odours with spray and deodorisers that will absorb the smell and neutralise it. Don't use air fresheners as they will simply cover the smell but will not do anything to remove it.
