Going Green With VOC-Free Paint
In the modern age, there are more than a few reasons to consider going green. Over the years, homeowners have made an effort to be conscious of their home's environmental impact, including switching to energy-efficient appliances, electric vehicles, and other environmentally-friendly alternatives. However, when it comes to home painting projects, many homeowners still make the mistake of choosing harmful painting materials.
Currently, there are a lot of big-brand paint supply companies that produce paints containing harmful chemicals called VOCs. VOCs or volatile organic compounds are non-biodegradable, non-recycling, and have been linked to decreased air quality within homes. What's worse, these paints tend not to be as durable or lasting as their eco-friendly alternatives, meaning these areas need to be re-painted more often.

Creating Healthier, Happier Atmospheres
You may consider a top, popular painting brand for your next project, but those paints may not be the best option. If a paint-brand company isn't transparent about its environmental impact, it may be because these products are harmful to you and your home's spaces.
For instance, when you open a fresh can of paint, you often get hit by a strong chemical smell. This smell is not only unpleasant, but it may also mean that the paint contains harmful chemicals and VOCs. These substances can significantly affect the air quality in your home, and not for the better. Even more concerning, these products have been linked to several serious health concerns, including headaches, nausea, dizziness, and more.
Fortunately, there is an alternative to these harmful painting materials. Eco-friendly and VOC-free paint has been rising in popularity and gaining traction with painting contractors and DIY home painters. These alternative paints are biodegradable, easy to dispose of, and do not lead to any decrease in the air quality of your home. As they have gained popularity, eco-friendly paints have been designed to be more durable and longer-lasting, so you aren't sacrificing quality while protecting your and your family's health.
Worth The Cost
For many homeowners and painting contractors, the pricing is the main drawback of eco-friendly paints. These higher quality, VOC-free materials require more effort during production, so they tend to be priced higher than their harmful substitutes. However, for Sewell Painting & Pressure Washing and other painting contractors committed to the health of their clients, this is a small price to pay compared to the importance of home safety.
