|WHY GO GREENWHEN PAINTING?|
The consequencesof traditional painting methods clearly make the case for going green wheneveryou are choosing a painting contractor.
Protects IndoorAir Quality
According to theEPA, 9% of the airborne pollutantscreating ground level ozone come from the VOCs in paint as they react withnitrous oxide and create smog.
The EPA has identifiedpoor indoor air quality as one of the top five leading health risks inthe United States.
People spend 80%to 90% of their time indoors. Maintaining a high indoor air qualityis imperative to the health of your family and employees. Upon completionthere is minimal ongoing release or “outgas” of harmful chemicals.
Limits Exposureto Toxins
The “clean” smellof new conventional paint is actually vapors being released from toxicsolvents outgassing as the coating dries. Known as volatile organiccompounds (VOCs), these include benzene, formaldehyde, kerosene, ammonia,toluene and xylene, which are known carcinogens and neurotoxins.
Exposure to VOCscan result in commonly seen side effects such as skin, eye and respiratoryirritation, headache, dizziness, nausea. Some of these are suspectedof being human carcinogens. Other studies show exposure to paintfumes can also increase the risk of asthma and pregnancy miscarriage.
EPA estimates thatindoor levels of VOCs were 1,000 times more than outdoor levels after painting.
Prevents Harmto Our Planet
The disposal ofconventional paints causes landfill and groundwater contamination, whereaszero VOC paints are not considered hazardous materials.
It takes roughly2 gallons of water to clean one paint brush and roughly 5 gallons to cleana roller cover. There are now ways to treat wastewater for properdisposal by converting the wash water into small inert non-hazardous solidwaste and clear water that is safe for sewer systems.
