What can you do to prevent smoke from entering your house?

When you receive a notice that smoke testing will take place, you should check to see that all traps under basins, washing facilities, and floor drains have water in them. Pay particular attention to sinks and drains which receive little use. Pour water in garage floor drains, spare bathrooms and mop sinks. This smoke will enter any defective seal or pipe.
