SMOKE-FREE HOMES and
MULTIPLE DWELLING UNITS
When someone smokes in the home there is a large amount of secondhand smoke created. Simply smoking in another room will not remove the risk of secondhand smoke exposure for other people in the home. Smoke can go under doors and windows and through cracks.
The best way to protect your family from the unhealthy effects of secondhand smoke in the home is to have a smoke-free home. To recieve a free smoke-free home kit, call (801) 399-7195, email our staff or stop by the WMHD Health Promotions office.
Property owners and managers have the right to put rules in place to protect their property and the health of their residents. It is legal for managers and landlords to make rentals smoke free. For more information on smoke-free policies for apartments, condos and duplexes, call (801) 399-7105 or click here to see the guidelines.
