Tobacco Smoke

Tobacco Smoke Check™ is the most advanced air testing product on the market today for distinguishing residual contamination from tobacco smoke. This test is a valuable tool for homeowners and renters because it provides insight into whether the location can be considered a smoke-free environment.

Tobacco smoke contains more than 7,000 chemicals, including hundreds that are toxic and about 70 that can cause cancer. The dangers of smoking tobacco and exposure to second-hand smoke are well-known, but did you know that third-hand smoke can also cause serious health problems?

Third-hand smoke is the tobacco residue that can remain on surfaces and dust for months after someone smokes a cigarette. In some situations, third-hand smoke can even remain on fabric for a year and a half after the last exposure to cigarette smoke. This residue can cause coughing, asthma, and respiratory tract infections. Third-hand smoke is more likely to remain on indoor surfaces.


Secondhand smoke is smoke from burning tobacco products, such as cigarettes, cigars, or pipes. Secondhand smoke also is smoke that has been exhaled, or breathed out, by the person smoking.
