Creating Smoke-free Rental Homes and Apartments


A smoke-free home is a healthier home.  Smoke-free apartments and rental properties are also better for a landlord's bottom line. Tired of paying expenses like cleaning and refurbishing a smoker's unit? Going smoke free may help you see a reduction in maintenance and turnover costs. Smoking units often can require additional time and effort to repaint and replace carpets and drapes.  By going smoke free you can reduce or eliminate these expenses altogether.
