paint smell in room won't go away, what to do?

I painted a room a year ago and it still smells like paint. What can I do to fix this? Thanks, Bri

Welcome to the forums Brian!

Fresh air ventilation is the best way to evacuate paint odor but after a year I suspect it's got more to do with you being super sensitive to the odor than anything else.

Odors are particulate, they can only last so long before there's no more material left. Moving air speeds the process, so the more ventilation the sooner the smell is gone.
