Home-Healthy Painting, Your Best Choice Today
Posted on August 7, 2017
When it comes time to paint inside your home, troublesome odors and compromised air quality for you and your family are concerns that naturally come to mind. At CertaPro Painters®, the comfort and safety of our customers is always on our mind. That’s why the paints and coatings we apply are chosen to be always mild to fully odorless. And it’s why all the coatings we apply come in low-VOC (volatile organic compounds), and often no-VOC, formulations.
Alarming news headlines have us all well informed about the dangers of airborne VOCs. We’re also warned about mildew and mold, typically found in damp areas where it can multiply and grow over time to create unhealthy air. At CertaPro Painters® our goal is to contribute no VOCs within the home. In fact, some of the interior coatings we apply in our customers’ homes are formulated to actually reduce already existing ambient VOC emissions emitted by other home decorating materials such as carpeting and furniture fabrics, cabinets and drapes.
As for mildew and mold, we work to eradicate it where it exists on previously painted surfaces and we apply new paints and coatings that contain anti-microbial agents to retard future development of mildew on painted surfaces.
We always put the health and wellness requirements of our customers, their family and friends into our pre-job planning … so everyone can breathe easy.
Important to note, however, is that specialized mold eradication companies should always be the first line of defense for homeowners with existing hazardous mildew and mold growth behind walls and ceilings, under carpet and subflooring, in basements and even ceilings and attics.
Your Health Needs Come First
If family members have special health conditions – allergies, asthma and other health concerns – be sure to let your CertaPro Painters® know in advance of painting. We always put the health and wellness requirements of our customers, their family and friends into our pre-job planning … so everyone can breathe easy.
