Getting Rid of Paint Smell

I'm getting the whole inside of my house painted. The paint smell is a little heavy. How can I remove the smell?

For really nasty smells, rent an ozone machine (from a rental store) & run it for several hours (while your family is away). The smell will be TOTALLY gone in no time!

fans will speed up the drying process. open all windows possible

ozone machines are really good. don't know the cost of renting one though

A great way to rid the house of strong paint fumes is with plain white vinegar. Just pour into bowls and leave them out around the house!
