I would not recommend stripping the product.
- In fact, stripping that paint could create more damage due to harmful dust and debris during the messy stripping process.
- It is also not necessary to repaint using nontoxic paints; however, this step can create an effective barrier to reduce possible exposure to VOCs.
Once the conventional coatings are completely dry and cured, from a health standpoint the risks are considered negligible.
I do highly recommend increasing fresh airflow into the environment by using fans and opening windows and doors if possible. The more air exchange you have, the faster the products will cure, thus minimizing your possible exposure time.
I believe in the sage advice once shared with me: "The solution to pollution is dilution."
