smokeIf you live in an apartment, you’re sharing more than just laundry rooms and mailboxes. You’re sharing air.

If someone is smoking, that smoke cannot be controlled by fans, ventilation, or separating smokers. Secondhand smoke travels through air ducts, stairways, walls, and floors into your rooms. That smoke can cause heart attacks, cancer, and is especially harmful to children.


Landlords are encouraged to promote the health of their tenants by making their buildings smoke-free.
