Painting projects emit Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs) that can have serious adverse effects on human health. These VOCs are a major contributor to air pollution and can linger in the air of your home or business long after the paint job is done. Inhaling these chemical compounds can also cause various adverse symptoms in humans.
By utilizing low-VOC or zero-VOC paints, Five Star Painting of Coral Gables helps reduce the number of chemical pollutants released into the environment while also protecting its clients from potential health risks associated with traditional paint products.
What Are Volatile Organic Compounds?
Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs) are organic chemicals that have a high vapor pressure and are released easily into the environment. VOCs can come from various sources, such as paints, furniture, cleaning supplies, building materials, and even our own activities like cooking. VOCs can cause eye, nose, throat, and lung irritation as well as headaches, dizziness, and nausea. Some of these compounds have also been labeled as carcinogenic by the EPA.
In addition to these health risks, VOCs can also contribute to the depletion of the ozone layer and global warming. Typically, they are found in paints in the form of solvents that help the paint dry, mix, and improve coverage. Luckily, there are ways to complete your next painting project while reducing the number of VOCs that are released into the air of your home and the surrounding environment.
