Creating a healthy work space is vitally important to everyone at University Painters, not only because we care about the health and safety of our employees, but because our work area is your environment, too. We know that you live and/or work in buildings and rooms where paint will remain for several years. If you live in an older home, who knows how many coats of paint are already splashed on your walls! That’s why we consider it extremely important to work with low volatile organic compound (VOC) paints. Less damage to the environment and to those who live in it—everybody wins.
How Low VOC Paint Helps You
Volatile organic compounds are emitted by solids and gases, including paint and paint strippers, even years after application. It was discovered that working with traditional oil paints and other high VOC products could cause damage to the brain and to the environment. In fact, it's said that typical household paint has some 10,000 chemicals in it, and that 300 of those chemicals are known toxins. Additionally, 150 of them have even been suggested to be carcinogenic! Low VOC paints can help improve your indoor air quality to create a healthier space.
