Getting rid of interior smell?

A friend of mine is about to buy a Sienna, but he said inside, it really smells like insence and dried seafood (??).
1. Any local place around Vancouver/Richmond/Burnaby able to offer a cleaning service that would totally remove the smell?
2. Roughly, how much would this cost?
I searched for truth, and all I found was You

Ozonator? I'm actually looking into these services myself. Spilled some stanky liquid on the car seats.

My car smelled like dog and cigarettes....

So a few days ago, I decided to use a damp cloth and just wipe down the headliner(you will be amazed at how much dirt/oil/grime is in there) and oxyclean+damp cloth on the carpeted areas.....I was quick pleased with the results. Cheers.

I steam cleaned every piece of my interior, its 26 years years old. It smelled odd, but it made a HUGE difference when i steam cleaned. Had to get out a few times cause of the smell that came out of my seats and headliner, was like a mix a weed, cigarettes and sweat . Its actually alot better in there now

London drugs has this product called air sponge I think it's in a little plastic container and it absorbs bad odors. It's like 8 bucks and it works pretty good
