Why We Choose Low VOC Formula Paint

Safe Step provides hotel bathroom refinishing services using eco-friendly, low VOC formula paint. Besides drying quickly, low VOC formulas also improve indoor air quality and avoid the fumes that other paints emit. Read on for more information, then visit our website to learn more about our refinishing and restoration services.

What Is Low VOC Formula Paint?

VOC is the acronym for volatile organic compounds emitted from various products, such as pharmaceuticals, petroleum fuels, refrigerants, and dry cleaning agents. Another of these products, conventional paint, often contains higher VOC levels. 

While indoors, these chemical compounds evaporate under normal conditions. The “Environment Protection Agency” (EPA) reports that VOC levels are 2 to 5 times higher indoors than outdoors. Researchers believe this happens due to conventional paints releasing VOCs, which build up over time in enclosed spaces.

Unlike conventional paints, low VOC formula paint does not impact the ozone layer or harm living organisms. You can find low VOC formulas in some paints and similar products, such as adhesives, sealants, and cleaners. 

Not only do they help maintain the indoor air quality, but low VOC formula paint used in remodeling and construction projects also helps reduce emissions of smog-forming compounds.

High VOC Products Are Unsafe for Humans and the Environment

VOCs in paint typically include benzene, chloride, formaldehyde, and methylene. Benzene is a human carcinogen, and formaldehyde is a toxin. These volatile organic compounds become gases or vapors as they disperse into the air. Once airborne, they cause ozone depletion and pose serious acute and chronic health risks to humans. Inhaling VOCs can damage the nasal airways, cause complications to the central nervous system, and lead to other serious health issues.

In addition, VOCs are considered greenhouse gases. Sunlight causes them to react with oxygen, producing elements harmful to the ozone. Because they are a danger to the environment, the government has been regulating VOCs for several decades.

Why We Choose Low VOC Paint

Because we serve top hotels, we test and approve paint coatings and other products working with leading cleaning chemical suppliers. Low VOC paints contain smaller amounts of volatile organic compounds, usually less than 5 gm per liter. These lower quantities better protect human health and the environment.

Low VOC formula paint also has little to no odor, virtually eliminating complaints from staff or guests regarding fumes. Many paint suppliers are starting to produce low or no VOC paints to help reduce greenhouse gases and prevent global warming. We are doing our part for the environment by using these low VOC paint formulas. Contact us to refinish your hotel or resort bathroom safely.
