    Question Latex Paint Fumes?

    Just finished paint on my reptile room and something occurred to me that hadn't before. Even though the paint is dry, you can definitely smell that new paint when I turn off the fan. If you've ever been in a freshly painted room you know the smell I speak of. I know the paint is nontoxic when dry and it's water based, so I would think the smell wouldn't be a problem. It will be a few days before anyone gets moved in there anyway as there is still some trim work to finish up. Any thoughts?

    Hi, if it`s water based non toxic, it shouldn`t be any problem at all, once dry (I mean the smell)...
