Hi all, this is a long one! Sorry! I just moved into a new space in the same building as where I have been for the last 2yrs as a commercial picture framer.I've leased space for many years in the building as an artist and have had no problems at all. I've also had a good relationship with maintenance and management. I don't want to burn any bridges because of all this. Maintenance repainted everything and re-waxed the floors before I moved in. It looks like they used aerosol oil based primer in spots and then painted over it with latex on the walls and then proceeded to shut everything up until I moved in 2 weeks later. When I opened the door the fumes were intense! They gave me 3 days to move from one location to the other location. So I had no choice to try and air it out and work through it. I rented an air scrubber and tried wearing a respirator for fumes. Unfortunately, it made me so sick I had to go to the ER. The chemicals irritated my lungs and I was put on prednisone. I spoke to the manager of the building and maintenance. They are concerned but I get the feeling they think I'm kinda making it up. The fumes are still there (not as bad) when I come in and had to have a bunch of fans going and the windows open . Its put a huge burden on the shop and me being able to complete orders while trying to put my shop back in order. Maintenance has decided to encapsulate the paint with a new paint that is supposed to stop the outguessing. So they want me to move everything out and do this. The thing that bothers me the most is that they haven't been paying for all of this and think it's not a big deal to be moving everything around. So far I have the air scrubber rental, respirators, special filters for the central air,ER visit (super expensive!), and a missed anniversary concert from ER visit.It's up to about $4,000. It's been a month since they redid the space. Obviously, some chemical or application method didn't mesh well! How would you all handle this? It's such a bizarre thing to be dealing with that is having a huge impact though. Thanks! Also, the ER physician wanted to call the county health inspector and have my space looked at. But since the management is being supportive, I felt it best to give them a chance to fix it first.
