Commercial Painters East Bay -- Using Low VOC Paints in Offices

More commercial painters in East Bay, as well as paint manufacturers, have become more aware of the dangers of traditional paints.

A lot of offices and commercial spaces have also become environmentally conscious and have become more concerned about their coworkers. Most of the offices feature windowless spaces and lacking ventilation, and the importance of using low-VOC and zero-VOC paints is more emphasized than ever.

"VOC" stands for volatile organic compounds, and they are one of your paint's basic formula that allows it to remain in liquid state inside the can until it is applied. After you dabbed the paint with a paintbrush or rolled it with your paint roller, the VOC's form into gas and evaporate, causing that fresh paint odor. VOC's may include a variety of chemicals that include ethyl acetate, methylene chloride, toluene, and glycol.

These are gases that can be harmful to human health and the environment. Prolonged exposure to VOC can damage your vital organs such as your lungs and liver. It can also cause a significant detriment to the environment.

Commercial painters know normal and smooth operations are the key to a success in business, and the health and safety of the employees should be of utmost importance. While they believe that a newly painted space should be seen and appreciated, it doesn't mean that the new paint has to be sniffed and smelled as well.

Low VOC paints and zero-VOC paints

According to the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), the levels of VOC's in a low-VOC paint should be less than 200 grams per liter. This is a great option if you need to avoid noxious paint fumes.

But if you want to go with zero-VOC paints, the better. While "zero-VOC" really doesn't mean that they have absolutely no VOC's, at least the levels of VOC's are significantly minuscule -- 5 grams per liter or less. Zero-VOC paints are best for interior spaces, especially spaces that are lacking ventilation.

Advantages of using low VOC and zero VOC paints

· Virtually no noxious odors and fumes to bother employees and clients.

· The cost of low VOC or zero VOC paints is almost similar to the cost of traditional paints.

· Less negative impact on the environment.

· The quality of low VOC or zero VOC paints is almost the same as that of traditional paints.

· Lots of colors and finishes to choose from.

Low- and zero-VOC paints are ideal for offices and facilities such as:

· Hospitals, clinics, veterinary clinics, and doctor's offices.

· Schools, nurseries and other learning institutions.

· Restaurants, cafes and related establishments.

· Residential properties such as homes, apartments, and condominiums.

· Places of worship (churches, mosques, synagogues, etc.).

· Food processing, manufacturing, and production.

· Laboratories.

· Agricultural facilities.

· Airports and seaports.

· Hotels, inns, and bed-and-breakfast accommodations.

· ... and many more.

Whether the reasons are aesthetic or concerns are health-related or environmental, seek only the services from the best commercial painters in East Bay.
