High VOC paint in small bedroom. Need advice.
« on: May 29, 2017, 09:40:45 AM »
I painted my (metal) baseboard heater with some spray paint that has ~460g/l VOC. While painting it had an incredibly strong odor as well. This heater is at one side of the room and about 9 feet long. I will be sleeping right next to it.

The spray paint was cheap enamel too, but it says that it is non-toxic when dry. Does anyone know if dangerous gasses could come off the metal heater after it has dried?


If that is not known, would it be a good idea to roll on some other low VOC paint? Would covering it mitigate the issue or completely eliminate toxic releases from the enamel paint beneath it?
