A fresh coat of paint on your home's interior or exterior can make all the difference in the world when it comes to visual appeal. However, painting is not without its environmental and health concerns. At Five Star Painting of East Oklahoma City, we understand the environmental and health risks that volatile organic compounds (VOCs) from paints can cause.
VOCs are known to have several adverse effects on both humans and the environment, ranging from respiratory irritation to air pollution. That's why the Choctaw and Midwest City painters we work with provide eco-friendly solutions by utilizing low-VOC or zero-VOC paint products. Our team strives to provide you with beautiful results while also doing our part for the planet.
What Are Volatile Organic Compounds?
Volatile organic compounds (VOCs) are chemicals that easily evaporate and become airborne at room temperature. These compounds can be found in many different types of products, such as paints, solvents, and adhesives. VOCs are a major source of air pollution and have been linked to numerous health risks for humans.
These health risks include:
- respiratory irritation
- asthma attacks
VOCs found in paint products allow them to penetrate quickly into the substrate and provide an even coating that helps reduce drying time. Additionally, VOCs can also give paints their desired color and texture. While painters often wear personal protective equipment (PPE) to help reduce their exposure to VOCs, these compounds can linger in your home and the atmosphere after the job is completed.
