Here is one more step towards saving our earth from global warming and our health. Lot of people give least importance, while painting the house.It shouldn't be like that.
If your remodel plans include painting, it's well worth your time to look at the eco friendly paint options that are available on the market today. Traditional paint emits lots of nasty chemicals that contribute to poor indoor air quality, and can cause serious health risks.
Understanding the risks associated with traditional paint and knowing your options will help you to make wise and well-informed choices when buying new paint.
What's Wrong With Traditional Paints?
It's been said, by the EPA, that the air indoors is up to 5 times worse than the air outdoors. Since most of us spend most of our waking hours indoors, that fact should be extremely concerning.
To understand why traditional paints are harmful, it's important to understand something called VOC's, or Volatile Organic Compounds.
VOC's are carbon-based chemicals that are found in paint and other products. When the paint is applied to your wall, the VOC's are released into the air. The highest concentration of VOC's is released when the paint is applied, but paint can actually continue to "off-gas" these harmful chemicals for up to 5 years!
