More People, More Pollution

When dealing with indoor air pollution, there's always things a homeowner can do to reduce their risk of being exposed to pollutants. But what if you don't actually own your residence? Indoor air pollution can pose a unique problem for people living in a shared space with others, such as apartments, condos, and housing under the Affordable Housing plan. The pollutants from another tenant can effect someone who doesn't even use them, and the building itself may have damage the renter isn't legal allowed to fix.



The best solution to avoiding air pollution from multi-family housing units, if you're unable to appeal to the owner of the complex, is to help to educate your neighbors and friends about the causes and risks. Ask people to smoke away from the building and give them alternatives to harmful cleaning products. A little positive neighboring goes a long way!
