Dear PoP – Tobacco Smoke Seeping Through Walls

“Dear PoP,

I live in a Petworth townhouse. The past few weeks, a strong odor of tobacco smoke has been wafting into my house from the neighbor’s. It’s unbearable. I’m surprised that this much smoke odor could waft through solid brick walls! Thought I’d ask other Wardmanistanis if they have had the same problem and have an idea of how the smoke might be coming through the walls and how I can stop it.”

We spoke a bit about this issue with smoke leaking into apartments. For those who live in row houses – have you experienced this problem? If so, what can be done to mitigate the situation?
