How long are fumes dangerous after spraying...how long should the respirator mask be worn after spraying while in the same room? Assuming there is ventilation sucking air out of the room. I wore it for the next 30 minutes while I was cleaning up, but it is not that comfy.

I usually vent the room and keep the mask on while I clean up. I leave the room and come back the next day, after the paint has cured, then vent the room again before spending any time in that environment. The paint that was applied will give off toxic fumes until it's cured but they become less harmful as time passes. If the room is kept warm the paint will cure faster.
