I've just moved into a new apt that has had its bedroom door, closet doors, and trim all painted with oil based paint. The smell is horrible and giving me headaches. I've heard that sealing the bedroom, and setting a dehumidifier, electric heater, and a fan to circulate the air to try and increase the dry time in the bedroom.
Would a de-huimidifer work effectively to dry out oil based paint? I've also read that oil based paint dries on the outside first and lastly in the under layers. If it's not going to do anything I would rather avoid spending the money to rent the dehumidifier.
Thanks. Any input is greatly appreciated.
