Hello I painted my sons bedroom 10 days ago now, its now the 31st March and he has not been able to sleep in his bedroom s since due to the STRONG SMELL. I painted the walls with white emulsion and painted the window, door, skirting boards and picture rail with DULUX non drip wood and metal white paint, I was trying to think how old this tin was used it once before but its got to be 3 years or more. I did not think that gloss paint went off, but why is my sons bedroom still smelling, i dont want to put him in there in case the smell or fumes damage him. What is this smell why does it stay so long? How long is it going to last? surely paint smell should have gone by now what have others done? do they just go back into the rooms with the smell, its a bedroom and dont want to damage his health if he should not be in there. have had the window open each day all day and at night on vent, but stil the smell is there, although think less, but still there. can anyone help with past exerience? I dont usually glosss, but did not think that this smell woudl be still there and that my son cannot sleep in his bedroom even after 10 days, he is having to sleep in our room for now. I dont want to put his health at risk. or is it no risk?
