Curry Odor Removal

Curry odors are a challenge for many reasons:

  1. The odors are complex due to the combination of materials combusted.
  2. Odors build up over time with repeated curry cooking.
  3. Cooking with spices may be done in oils, which vaporize and disperse through the entire kitchen.
  4. Residue builds up on the interior of the kitchen vent hood, exterior of kitchen cabinets, and on wall and ceiling surfaces.
  5. Some kitchen exhaust hoods have no vents, and they collect oil residue and cooking vapors in charcoal.
  6. Some kitchen exhausts vent into the attic rather than the outside, making it necessary to treat the attic also.


Deodorizing, cleaning and repainting will be required in most situations. Do not paint over the smell without properly deodorizing, as the curry odor will vaporize through latex paints.


Basic Method

  1. Using a pump-up sprayer, contact spray (do not fog) Unsmoke Double O diluted at 3-5 ounces per gallon of water onto affected surfaces: walls, ceilings, exterior of kitchen cabinets, appliances, and vent hood (interior and exterior).
  2. Clean the structure using UnSmoke DeGrease-All with 3 ounces of Unsmoke Double O added to each gallon. Use 0000 steel wool to clean the exterior of kitchen cabinets to remove grease and soil build-up.
  3. Place Unsmoke COC crystals (citrus scent) on paper plates around the area. Use two (2) large handfuls per room. If preferred, you can use the 8 oz Fresh Wave IAQ gel. (DO NOT APPLY COC CRYSTALS TO A HARDWOOD FLOOR.)
  4. Thermal fog with Unsmoke Thermo 55 Citrus at a rate of 1/2-1 ounce per thousand cubic feet.
  5. If needed, OdorX Space Spray Citrus/Lemon can be used to re-odorize the exterior of kitchen cabinets in severe cases when required.
  6. Seal walls with Bin pigmented shellac with two (2) ounces of Unsmoke Space Spray Citrus added to it.
  7. Re-paint structure with desired coating.
