Smokey environments and gear

Recently I use my Tascam DR-40 recorder in a smokey environment, cigars and cigarettes. I know long term exposure to smoke can damage gear, but will this instance, about 3 hours of exposure to smoke, have damaged the internal microphones of the DR-40? I dont think smoke was blown directly at the unit. The internals are condensers, dont know if they are electret or not, if that matters.

I don't 3 hours is going to change the sound of your mics.

If you were buying some used mics from a guy who smoked in his studio for 20 years.... that's the kind of thing people are talking about when they worry about "smoke free" stuff.
