Two days ago I changed the fibercement ceiling tiles in my room.

Two days ago I changed the fibercement ceiling tiles in my room. It's been difusing a pungent insecticide-like smell all over that leaves a bitter taste in the back of my throat. I suppose it's formaldehyde used to bind the cement board. I've been ventilating the room the best I can but it persists with the same intensity. When will the odor disappear?

      I have an undulated fibercement sheet roof. The house came with the drop tiles like any other house around here. If I didn't replace it I'd have wienerroach shit falling on my face. So what about the gas, do other materials like vinyl have less harmful shit on them?

    can you hit the whole ceiling with one of those roofing torches? I dunno, seems like that would do something.

    probably a LONG time.

    I'd take down as many of the easy ones as possible and store them outside with venting between them.

    If you need to stay in the room this winter, invest in extra blankets and maybe E-blanket and fleece suit. Keep windows open. 🙂

    I've done about a dozen suspended ceilings similar to this and never had such an issue. Was there an existing suspended ceiling that you took out and replaced with this? If so, my guess would be what you're actually smelling is something was above the existing tiles and got knocked free/fell into the room when you replace them. Give the whole place a good dusting and vacuuming, let it air out and see if it is still there in a few days.

    Lay them out in the sun, maybe the UV will break down whatever the culprit is

    Get an ozone generator, run it in there till no more smell.
