Is secondhand smoke really that bad?
Second hand smoke is harmful and unfortunately can drift between apartment and condo units. The smoke from cigarettes or cigars can enter through doors and windows, as well as through a building’s air conditioning, ventilation, plumbing fixtures, electrical outlets and lighting fixtures. California law permits landlords to designate any portion of their property, including the entire property as “nonsmoking.” Find out more on what you can do to BREATHE smoke-free in your home by clicking the link below.
