How to get rid of moth ball smell in the house?

A friend of mine was having trouble with squirrels in her attic, so the landlord put mothballs up there trying to deter them. Well now her house smells pretty strongly of mothballs. She's taken out what moth balls she could find, but is there any remedy for the smell?
