The interior of your home is where low VOC paints should be given a priority. Not many people know about poor indoor air quality. The interior of your home gets polluted by household cleaning chemicals, pollen, dust particles and the chemical fumes that are emitted from household décor like paint, glues and carpets. You must be aware of the smell of a freshly painted room. That smell or odor is due to chemicals- VOCs present is the paint. Low VOC paints have a lot more mild smell and are healthier for your family.

 

Paints consist of four general types of ingredients like additives, solvents, binders and pigments. Mostly, it is the additives that are full of VOCs, so make sure that you read the labels of your paint and choose a paint with properties that doesn’t have adverse effect on your home.
