Default Should Living room with Oil based paint need repainting ?

Hello Guys,

Am new to the forum & indeed thrilled to join you all. I am based in India.
One of my client is moving into an apartment where the interiors have been painted with oil paint approximately 3 year backs. He is concerned about off gassing VOC & would like to know if it is safe to move in with his 4 month old son. I am confused if it is safe, as it has been three years since the oil paint job or should i advise repainting with primer plus Latex to reduce VOC exposure.

Awaiting your inputs,

Thanks

Adding more paint will not reduce voc off gassing. The latex products will just add their voc content to the mix. After 3 years though it will be fine. I do not know how long oil off gasses but it should be minimal after that time.

After 3 years I would not be concerned about the paint off-gassing. Carpets, particle board, sub-flooring, sheetrock/wallboard and other composite materials can off-gas chemicals like formaldehyde and other compounds for a long time.... Not to scare you, but those are some facts...
