Why Use Non-Voc Paints? By House Painter in Old Saybrook Ct

It used to be years ago that the homeowner had no choice when it came to what was in their house paint except for finishes, color and if it’s oil or latex base.  But with time there have been great strides in offering healthier choices!

Paints and finishes release low level toxic emissions for many years after the paint dries!  This comes from Volatile Organic Compounds (VOC’s)  which were put into the paint to ensure good quality paint.  We have created this blog “Why Use Non-Voc Paints? By House Painter in Old Saybrook Ct ” to give you a little information about this so you can make an informed decision next time you buy paints.

What are Volatile Organic Compounds?  They are in the house paints that house painters use unless you ask for NON-VOC PAINT OR O-VOC PAINTS They are a large group of carbon based chemicals that easily evaporate at room temperature.  VOC’s are emitted as gases from certain solids or liquids from an array of chemicals, some of which can cause short term or long term health effects. They are not only found in house paint but in everything from cleaning products to hobby products.    Some symptoms are nose and throat irritation, headache, dizziness, fatigue.. and many more symptoms which you can experience one or more of.

Most large painting companies now offer low or no VOC paint, we recommend No VOC paint.  Our favorite is Benjamin Moore’s Natura.  These paints are very high quality, and they last a long time.  The cost is not much more if at all then regular paint.

So next time you are painting or you hire a professional house painter to paint, be sure to ask about and insist on a NO VOC paint!
