Environmentally Responsible Painting Contractor

What are VOCs?
What exactly are VOCs?Earth Friendly Painting Contractor, Green Choice by Roberge Painting Company, Environmentally Responsible Painting, Eco-friendly Painting

When you paint a wall or other surface, the paint takes a few hours to dry.  As the paint dries, and for many years afterwards, it releases gases from its liquid form. 
These harmful gases emitted by the paint as it dries are called VOCs.

Among the VOCs we can name: benzene, toluene, naphthalene, and formaldehyde.  Their function is to improve the paintís capacity to spread, and to act as biocides and fungicides.

However, in rooms without proper ventilation, these gases can harm human lungs and other organs over time.

For example, the exposure to formaldehyde can cause eye watering and burning sensations in eyes, nose, and throat.  It can also produce chest tightness and panting, and has been classified by EPA as a possible carcinogen.

Today, the highest quality paints dry while releasing very low amounts of VOCs, ensuring peopleís safety and comfort.
