Asthma Information for Landlords

Maintaining a clean, dry, well ventilated building is more than good for business, it is good for the health of your tenants. Buildings with mold, dust, tobacco smoke, or other asthma triggers can be unsafe for people, especially children with asthma, to live in.

What You Should Do

  • Vent exhaust fans and clothing dryers to the outdoors
  • Fix all leaks, roof problems, and plumbing issues as soon as they arise
  • Consider replacing carpeting with hard-surface flooring
  • Make your properties "smoke-free".
