Benefits of Using Eco-Friendly Paints for Your Home Painting
For years people used paints with harmful effects because this was the only kind of paint available. Today’s eco-friendly paints are available in many stores. This green paint has no strong scent and no harmful effects on people, plants, animals, or the air.
Benefit #1 – Fewer VOCs
Eco-friendly paint has fewer Volatile Organic Compounds or VOCs and less “paint smell.” Green paint can be identified by its lack of smell. According to the EPA, VOC levels are ten times more potent and dangerous inside your home.
One of the main benefits of eco-friendly paint is a lower number of dangerous VOCs.
Benefit #2 – Better Air Quality Inside and Outside
Air quality indoors and outdoors is less toxic when eco-friendly paints are used. A neighbor on your street who is painting with VOC paint emits many chemicals into the air that are toxic.
Side effects of breathing these toxins can range from headaches and nausea to kidney damage and loss of memory.
When you use eco-friendly paint indoors or outdoors, you are preventing the air from becoming more toxic from your use of paint.
Benefit #3 – Eco-Friendly Paint Looks Good on Walls
Eco-friendly paint looks as good as paint with higher amounts of VOC on your walls. There are many excellent water-based eco-friendly paints made by various companies. These paints have no negative environmental impact. They are made in many shades to complement any décor.
This is especially true if you have prepared your walls by removing cobwebs and flaking paint and making other repairs before you paint.
Benefit #4 – Avoid Toxins with VOC Paint
Your health may be better if you use eco-friendly paint. VOC paint can remain in the environment for years after it dries. Lung cancer is higher in people exposed regularly to VOCs.
Benefit #5 – Made of Natural Substances
Eco-friendly paint is made from natural substances. It has no toxic chemicals like VOC paint but is made from lemon peel and other natural ingredients. The manufacturing of green paint is also friendly to the environment with safe emissions.
Benefit #6 – The Additional Cost Is Worth It
Green paint is made to be safer for humans and the environment. VOC paints cost less but can cause health problems for humans and hurt the ozone. People who care about their health and the environment don’t mind paying more because they see it as an investment.
Benefit #7– They Are Safe for Everyone
Eco-friendly paints can be used by kids or by a person with asthma. Since they are all-natural, there are no harmful fumes breathed in as you paint.
Benefit #8 – These Paints Are Vegan
Standard VOC paint is made with animal parts. Some paints contain crushed insects or gelatin from bones. They are then tested on animals after production to test for negative effects.
