Use less toxic paints. Save the environment!

“Back in the day” paint was actually mixed with pigment and lead and other ingredients to make a coating that would bond to the surface (s). Now days it is made with bonding agents a base of acrylic, alkyd, latex or certain other synthetic and organic ingredients and chemicals.

While a nice bold color or decent coverage is desired, a paint can emit harmful toxic fumes called: V.O.C’s or Volatile Organic Components.

Sometimes customers complain of headaches and nausea after being in a freshly painted room. I recommend using low or no toxic paints.  I use these low toxic paints as often as possible. If you are in the New York City area, give me a call, lets set up a time i can show you the wide range of “green” paints and building supplies.
