PAINTERS IN SANTA ROSA, SONOMA COUNTY, AND NAPA COUNTY OFTEN OFFER LOW VOC/LOW ODOR PAINTS

Volatile Organic Compounds, or VOCs, are found in most paints. As the paint dries, it releases chemicals that can cause dizziness and headaches if an area is not well-ventilated, and some people f
ear that VOCs even cause cancer. VOCs also negatively impact smog levels. Most of the smog-increasing compounds come from cars, but VOCs are found in other offenders, too. So should painters in Santa Rosa, Sonoma County, Napa County, and beyond opt for low VOC paint?

Some people are conscientious about every product they use in their home. When considering how dangerous paint is or isn’t, consider that VOCs are also in carpets, treated wood, adhesive, and even scented products like shampoos, air fresheners, and dryer sheets. Paint can release VOCs for years (at lower and lower levels), but don’t forget those other products that you might be continually introducing into your home.

Obviously many people over the years have used regular paint and have been perfectly healthy, but if you suffer from asthma, are sensitive to fumes, or just want to limit VOCs in every area of your life, you may want to research low VOC paint. Many painters in Santa Rosa, Sonoma County, and Napa County offer the option of low VOC paints, and Mike Chavez Painting is one of them. Paint manufacturers are trying to get the quality of low VOC paints to match the quality of older paints, and the quality has indeed improved.
