Paint smells like cat pee.

Anonymous asked 6 years ago

We have one room in our house that was painted two years ago using Olympic interior satin latex paint from Lowe’s. In the past few days the room has developed a distinct cat pee odor. We, however, do not have a cat and there has not been a cat in the house. Does anyone know of something specific about this paint? The color we used was Aloe Vera.

Had the same problem after using old paint, tried everything and then one day by chance I had a bathroom air freshener can in my hand so I sprayed the wall with it. Smelled rough for a day and then the smell was gone, and has stayed away!!

Same problem here, older people in this apartment before I moved in, landlord told me that they put an additive into the paint to nutralize smoke odor.. either way I thought the people who lived here before me pissed all over the apartment, calling the management company Monday, I just moved in here, and I have to sleep on the couch, the bedroom is unbearable, the smell has caused me to have a site throat, and kicking up my asthma.. something has to be done.
