A painter who uses eco-friendly paint helps keep the air you breathe safe. Studies have shown that most traditional paints release odors and volatile organic compounds or VOCs into the air. VOCs are organic solvents contained in paint which enter the atmosphere as the paint is applied and dries.
The reasons these VOCs are added to paint are varied. Some are added to keep it from freezing, some are added to keep it from drying too fast, and some are just the pigments necessary to color the paint. All of these chemical ingredients add to the VOC level of the paint. Home improvement manufacturers are more knowledgeable and have started offering quality paint that features low odors and zero VOCs.
An additional benefit of using an eco-friendly painting company is less interruptions to your home or business life, since you don’t need to open the windows or sleep elsewhere while the job is done.
