    I have tried similar in the past, my first concern is the comfort of my Customers, to be honest I found it more trouble than its worth, Oil Paint odours do not linger that long, leave a window open.

    Still get the "Old Dears" leaving dishes of chopped up onions in the room on occasions,
    makes the room smell like a pickling factory

    My clients will be out all day - It is me and the state of my brain after 10 hours with my nose in a tin of Zinsser Covastain (yeah, sorry, I said covaplus in my earlier post - see, my brain is already stuffed !)

    The windows are very small, there is no door to the outside and just one out of the room, so it will take a while to clear the air...

    so the solvents will still be in your lungs, even if you can't smell them.

    I am looking into getting some sort of odour mask and guess I hadn't thought it all through very well..

    you can get "organic solvents" cartridges for proper masks.

    the rubber ones like army gasmasks, where you put a cartidge into the end of the snout. I think screwfix still do them.
