    "Yes you can use any water based paints and primers that will suffice for the job. Just need a bit longer time to properly harden and cure."

    "If I were painting a nursery I would use a washable paint on the walls and a water base on the wood work cuts down the smell and dries quick."

    Yes there are low odor paint materials for all conditions of breathing disorders & also children's still growing delicate respiratory organs.

    More and more people do seek them out with conditions such as asthma & any other bronchiolitis difficulties.
    Fumes,dust,cintaminents,silicosis are also a few other to look out for.

    They can be seen as a more common elements in construction and CDM Control Design Management and the risk assessments the more commercial sites must, undertake in a now new Health Surveillance from HSE."
