Ventilation Is KeyAny rooms being painted should have proper ventilation both to help alleviate the paint odor as well as ensure proper drying. Warm air movement is the most effective paint-curing mechanism.
To help limit lingering odor, remove any drapes and furniture, if possible, before painting. Paint fumes, even from latex paints, can permeate drapes, carpet and furniture. Cover furniture if it can't be removed.
