Removing tobacco smoke from the air is easy, and many air purifiers for smoke can do that. The hard part is tobacco smell because of tar.
Using traditional air purifiers with HEPA and Carbon filters
HEPA is not a good choice as it does not disable smoke as effectively and you’ll have to replace the HEPA filters frequently. While it is true that a HEPA filter acts like a cigarette filter the tar which builds up in it will make the HEPA smell like smoke almost immediately. Carbon will remove smoke, however the carbon will need to be in high amounts and will have to be replaced often.
These filters become smelly almost immediately because of Tar. The costly filters replacement fees are another big issue for long-term use.
Using Poiema clean air systems with TPA technology

TPA technology are totally no maintenance cost. You don’t have to change filters anymore. The only thing you have to do is simply wash the collecting electrodes. It is reusable and easy to wash.
