"VOC" stands for Volatile Organic Compounds, which are gases emitted from the organic chemicals used to produce paints. They can also be found in everyday household cleaning products. These VOCs can be harmful to your health and the environment. Recent advances in paint technology means you can get excellent, durable results without having to use high VOC paints.
Safety: Our Process
Fumes from paint solvents are a major concern with painting projects in your home, as is dust during prep, or chemicals during cleanup. We use special vacuums with HEPA particulate filters and compact fans to keep dust and any paint fumes to a minimum.
We strive to minimize risks at each step of the project.We keep a tidy workplace, to reduce the chance of accidents from tripping or spillage. We use OSHA-approved safety practices when working with ladders and scaffolding, to protect you, our employees,and your property.
