I wash my walls with Sugar Soap using a mop. It doesn't take to long at all.

That is not cool. Can you wash the curtains? I'd get the curtains cleaned, have the carpets professionally cleaned and wash the walls with sugar soap. Failing that, I'd repaint the walls.

I had this problem with the last owners, they smoked in the house and always burnt awful candles to cover the smell. We ended up replacing the carpets which were the main culprit and painted the main sitting room walls. Also got rid of all the curtains. The smell just lingers untill you get every last bit

If you can't replace the carpets maybe try a carpet deodoriser?
Sugar soap the walls, and if that doesn't work then you may have to paint over them.
Wash or replace all curtains.
That totally sucks that your tenants left your place like that Hope you can get the smell out x

Put bi carb in a container in closed rooms for a week? Could the smell be coming from vents (if you have vents/ducted aircon/heating)?

Yep I agree:
- sugar soap the walls
- wash curtains etc
- professionally steam clean carpets

Open all cupboards built ins, ones in kitchen wipe them out with vinegar water mix and leave open for a few days, reclean the carpets professionally with deodoriser, wash all curtains, wipe down all blinds, do the walls like everyone has said, get some closet camels if you think there's a bit of moisture and put them in cupboards, put some vinegar down drains especially ones in bathroom floors if you have any. Let us know how you go, not a small job by any means!

Shouldn't the exiting tenants have had the carpets professionally cleaned when they vacated as per tenancy agreement ? As for walls and curtains wash them all down and wash the curtains aswell but you can get a professional cleaner to do all of this and take it out of the tenants bond as they haven't left the property in the manner it was when they moved in. I used to have rentals and always had particular guidelines which had to met when they left the property of they didn't do it then I got a professional to do the clean up and used the bond money
