What Every Property Manager Needs to Know
Thursday, October 15, 2020, 2:00-3:00 pm PST
The webinar is free to participants.
Many property managers are all too familiar with complaints about secondhand smoke and the smell and discoloration left behind in the units of smokers. But did you know that this smell and discoloration is the result of the toxic residue left behind by tobacco smoke and it has negative health effects? Also known as thirdhand smoke, this toxic residue sticks to carpets, doors, furniture, walls, and other surfaces and materials and can remain for years after secondhand smoke has disappeared. How much do you know about thirdhand smoke? How prepared are you to prevent toxic thirdhand smoke? How prepared are you to deal with thirdhand smoke that has built up in an apartment?
This webinar will explain why it is so difficult to remove thirdhand smoke once it has become established and will focus on successful strategies to prevent thirdhand smoke in multiunit housing, with plenty of time for discussion with our panelists!
Webinar topics include:
- Thirdhand smoke: origins, constituents, routes of exposure, remediation
- Regulatory approaches to prevention of thirdhand smoke in multiunit housing
- Policy approaches to prevention of thirdhand smoke in multiunit housing
- Strategies for overcoming resistance: Successes, challenges, and resource
