Has anyone had a problem with residual fumes (months later) a very cloying smell which will not go away? I read a blog called Ghost Odors by an environmental professor who described the same situation exactly. Sherwin Williams does not seem to be acknowledging the problem. After months of living with this I now want to know what to do to neutralize what's on the wall- this odor-(latex ) before painting with Benjamin Moore. Help. I,m miserable.
Not knowing to which specific product you are refering, I can only say that SW as a whole does not have excessively stinky paints
(there are other companies/lines that do)
However, that's small consolation to those that are sensitive to these things
The only fix for paint odors is as much airing out as possible...with fans etc.
The best fix to seal in odors in the walls, is unfortutately a shellac, which itself is extremely stinky, but dries quick as has no odor to speak of when cured
If you want/need to skip the ultra-stinky
shellac, the best suggestion I have would be to use two coats of ultra-low VOC Aura
