RE: Cigarette Smoking in Building 15
Due to a high volume of recent complaints of owners within Building 15 being able to smell cigarette smoke in non-smoking units, we are notifying all owners in the building that there is a problem with cigarette smoke affecting non-smokers. Please consider the following:
We request that smokers refrain from smoking inside their units ESPECIALLY INSIDE THEIR BATHROOM where exhaust vents are located. Building 15 exhaust venting system is interconnected, i.e., smoke from one unit could enter other units.
Especially during the winter season where everyone keeps their windows closed and the HVAC is set at HEAT setting, the cigarette smoke particles percolate and exacerbate the scent.
Please bear in mind that the Department of Health claims that there is no safe level for second hand smoke. This makes it a major health issue for all of us.
Condo living is a shared responsibility and we expect everyone’s cooperation for a harmonious and healthy living. Thank you and should you have any questions, please contact the Board via the managing agent at 401.272.0788 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
