Smoke-free housing

Everyone should have the opportunity to breathe clean air at home.  This applies to people who live in apartments and condominiums, too.  Up to 65 percent of air in a multi-unit building is shared air, so if your neighbor smokes, you are breathing their secondhand smoke. 

Fortunately, smoke-free housing is becoming increasingly popular among property managers, condo boards, and residents alike.  Smoke-free housing is legal and easy to implement, can save thousands of dollars in turnover costs, and can improve residents’ health.

Respiratory Health Association has developed a toolkit for people interested in making their property smoke-free.  We can also provide free technical assistance to management, give presentations on smoke-free living to residents, and connect residents trying to quit with cessation resources.
