Q: After reading your great post on low/no-VOC paints, I am wondering if there is any way to mitigate the effects of already-applied good old-fashioned high-VOC paint, or am I just stuck with off-gassing for years to come?

Editor: Judith, this is a great question. We're going to throw this out to our readers for their insights, but first we'll say that we'd recommend getting an air purifier. Look for an air purifier that features chemical and VOC filtration. (Here are a few examples.) Other recommendations for Judith?
