How long should I ventilate a room after painting?

In today’s market, lot’s of paint carry little to no VOC’s. VOC’s or Volatile Organic Compounds are fumes that emit during the paint drying process. For the majority of our projects, rooms can be ventilated, and slept in the same day, once the paint has dried! With that being said, from time to time, oil based might be used. These primers off gas, and require more thorough ventilation. Depending on your specific situation, we always discuss using these products and alternative options before starting your project. If you have any questions or concerns, please drop us a line!
