The Colorado Clean Air Act is a law created to keep the residents of Colorado healthy by limiting their exposure to tobacco and marijuana smoke within homes and buildings. Implementing this act has become more prevalent with the legalization of marijuana in the state. Having a clear Odor Management Plan is important to understanding how to comply with various requirements.
Tobacco and marijuana smoke damage within buildings can easily be overlooked, but the smoke has the ability to penetrate paint on walls, doors, cabinets and more. Due to many paints being porous and dangerous odors and fumes from the effects of cigarette smoke, pot smoke, fire, meth as well as pet odors being able to penetrate and stick to the paint on most walls, it can leave a lingering smell and stain on painted walls. Research has even shown that smoke compounds adsorb onto surfaces and then leach back into the air over time, adding even more of a potential health risk.
The use of odor control methods for these issues is imperative to people like:
– Homeowners – Property Managers – Real Estate Agents or Professionals- Facility Management- Maintenance Crews- Apartment Managers- Condominiums- Houses/living spaces for resale or rent
When considering an odor control plan for smoke, it is important to note that room fresheners, candles, or incense will be very temporary and will only mask the odor. If smoke stains or smell is in the paint, painting over the walls will not eliminate the smell long term.
Once the smoke has penetrated the paint there are a few options:
1 – Ignore this serious problem
2 – Cover it up with standard paint, providing minimal benefit
3 – Apply a specialty paint uniquely formulated to seal, block, absorb and capture odors, fumes and chemical pollutants.
- Using Odor Control Products – This can include using products like an air purifier, a “bad air” sponge or chemical considerations like bleach
- Frequent Cleaning – This can be what you use in your plan of action. Depending on the facility or housing, having a plan like wiping the walls every week or dusting the surfaces can keep the odors at bay
- Contacting a Specialist – With the Colorado Clean Air Act, it is fundamental for those in this situation to do it effectively and professionally when needed. Due to the effects of smoke (tobacco or marijuana) on painted materials, a professional is often necessary.
