A Non-Smoking Apartment Community?

I don’t know of any apartment communities that are non-smoking, but apparently this may soon change. I read an article in Unit Magazine that was very interesting. I know what kind of damage that smoking can do to the smoker and those around them. That is documented and common sense to most of us.

The problem that the smoker brings to an apartment community is not as well understood. For example, the nicotine collects on the surfaces within the unit making it more difficult to restore when the tenant moves out. The odor can linger despite rigorous attempts at removing the smell. If you’ve stayed in a hotel which has that nasty aroma, you know what I’m talking about.

Interestingly, the article states that tenants would be willing to spend more for a smoke-free community. Apparently there is a demand for this kind of housing. Housing that is more comfortable, safer, with the rights of the non-smoker in mind.

The lawmakers have already begun making changes for this change. California is included in the list of states on this bandwagon. I don’t smoke but personally I would prefer to live in a smoke-free environment.

Here is a link to that article!
