sealing out ordours

Postby usramfan » Wed Oct 08, 2008 12:25 pm

I live in a semi detached house where when my neighbours cook, I can the smell of whatever they're cooking through-out my house. It's getting to the point where i can see trouble brewing up. It was suggested to me that I seal my floors nad joists. Anybody have any ideas as to what I should use? Thanks in advance for any help

it would be easier to move house than it would be to try and make it impervious to gases coming in from outside.
