For many years the focus around smoking has been solely directed at the health issues it can cause for you and those around you. More recently, both through research and for many, personal experience, the impacts of smoking in the home have become much clearer and widely understood and appreciated.
We looked at how smoking can ruin your home.
Even if you have an air conditioning unit from a top brand such as Dyson, all of the windows and doors open in your home and an electric hand fan for your face, even one cigarette is enough to ruin the air quality in your home. For regular smokers who keep all of the windows closed and have lingering smoke in the air regularly in their home, the effect is even greater. As well as leaving the quality of the air you are breathing in at a poor standard, you will be making your home less comfortable, both for yourself and for visitors.
It is always the source of a laugh and a joke when, after a few years of not having redecorated, we take down paintings or move a rug to see how clean the wall or carpet is underneath. In the majority of homes, the difference in cleanliness is perhaps negligible. Do this in the home of a smoker however, and you will be shocked at just how much the home has been affected. It is not just the teeth of a smoker that become stained. Walls will pick up stains from cigarette smoke extremely easily, and to make matters worse it is very difficult to clean and remedy afterwards.
Saving money by quitting smoking will also save you a fortune on cleaning and redecorating costs, too.
You know that horrible, stale smell that you can never get out of your clothes, off of your hair or scrub off your skin? That very same lingering stench is currently clinging to everything in your home.
