Second hand smoke contains a mixture of pollutants that can be present in air, dust and surfaces for several months or even longer. Individuals that are exposed to second hand smoke can develop health problems such as lung cancer, emphysema, raised cholesterol, heart attack, stroke, sudden infant death, respiratory infections, asthma attacks, ear infections, and chronic coughs. One of the most common testing methods to distinguish between a smoke-free, and a smoking environment is to collect samples by wiping down surfaces in suspected areas with a wipe. The wipes will be shipped to our laboratory overnight for analysis.
