Q:

My brothers and sisters and I are planning to paint the interior of my elderly parent's home.  The problem is - both of my parents smoked in the house for many years and the walls appear cigarette smoke stained throughout. Is there anyway the walls should be treated to eliminate these smoke stains and odor before we begin to paint?
