Non-toxic, waterproof spray sealant available for drop ceilings?
My landlord put in a drop ceiling in the unventilated bathroom of a ca. 1940s house. The ceiling above remains intact (though should have been removed because of damage from a water leak that has been fixed; the drop ceiling was a quick fix, though hardly ideal given bathrooms are damp).
The chemical smell from the panels is overwhelming and is affecting my breathing. I have a window fan to exhaust the air, but with winter coming this will not be feasible for long and I will have to use a dehumidifier, though that creates heat and increases the toxic smell.
Is there a non-toxic, low VOC, waterproof sealant I can spray on the drop panels that will provide a waterproof barrier (since the pulp tiles will absorb moisture) and reduce the smell, but that will not have a negative reaction with whatever chemicals may be in the porous drop panels? Thank you.
