Why Should You Say No to Toxic Paint?



Detoxing is a word we keep hearing a lot lately and it gets tossed around way too lightly. In fact, some of the very common kinds of stuff at our home and in our lives are filling our body with toxins at extraordinary new levels. Today we will precisely focus on the paints that contain detrimental toxic materials namely volatile organic compounds (VOCs).

VOCs And Their Harmful Effects 


VOCs include a vast variety of chemicals that having a low boiling point, evaporates at ordinary room temperature. VOCs not only evaporate but sublimate with the surrounding air, causing adverse health effects including eye irritation, dizziness, memory impairment, visual disorders and severe headaches. Long exposure to such volatile organic compounds may even cause cancer.



 

Why Should We Opt For Non-toxic Paint? 


Using VOC free paint makes a huge difference not only for your health but also the environment. Paints containing VOCs engender the indoor air to be three times more polluted than the outside air. Colouring a wall with normal paint actually keeps emitting those VOC toxins into the air for years, it keeps leaking those toxins even after the paint smell vanishes.
