Paint for walls to prevent indoor pollution

Applying the right paint for walls can help improve indoor air quality. Sounds too good to be true? Find out here!

The worsening AQI across Indian cities has been making the headlines all winter long. Moreover, it is a proven fact that air pollution affects public health radically. But how often do you think about the air quality indoors?

While outdoor air pollution poses a concern, the air we breathe indoors may be just as important since we spend so much of our time cooped up in our homes and offices. According to The Environmental Protection Agency, indoor air pollution ranks among the top five environmental dangers facing the public.

The health impacts of indoor pollution can include pneumonia, asthma, allergic reaction, heart disease and cancer depending on the type of pollutant present in the air. People suffering from respiratory or heart diseases, as well as young children and older adults may also have a greater risk of developing some of these health conditions connected to low indoor air quality.

Taking steps to improve your indoor air quality can help lower the risk of developing health conditions and may even improve your quality of life and boost your health. Even smaller upgrades in our homes can contribute to an overall better living environment. One such upgrade includes using a low VOC paint when considering home painting.

What Are VOCs?

If you have ever noticed a “fresh paint smell” in a newly painted room, then you have definitely encountered volatile organic compounds. VOCs are a class of chemicals that begin to vaporize and release in the air under typical indoor temperature and pressure conditions. Common VOCs include formaldehyde, flammable alcohol, household cleaning solvents, gasoline, benzene and other liquid combustion fuels.

Breathing in VOCs for a long period can increase the risk of health problems. Several studies prove that exposure to VOCs can make symptoms worse for people with asthma or who are sensitive to chemicals.

What is Low VOC Paint?

Low VOC paints are water-based instead of petroleum-based paints and contain less volatile organic compounds or VOC solvents compared to traditional paints. Typically, low VOC paints should have less than 50 grams per litre of VOC solvents.
