Similarly one may ask, does plaster have a smell?
Hard wall coating can have a feint sulphurous smell, not too strong and mostly when it's wet. The finishing plaster is pretty much odourless, save a slight dusty smell.
One may also ask, why does my house smell when it rains? Usually, the house smells musty after rain because moisture helps to grow mold and mildew. If you get a musty smell in your home after a storm, then it means the rain is most probably running where it shouldn't. You should check your roof and attic first, but rain can seep into crawlspaces and basements too.
Also Know, is Wet plaster bad for you?
A small amount of water, such as a splash or a wet article of clothing rubbing against the wall, is typically not detrimental to a plaster wall. If the water is minimal, wipe off the wall quickly and your wall will remain solid and intact.
