Not every “green paint project” necessarily includes green paint. Contrary to common belief, “green” paint is no longer limited to a few select colors, but now comes in hundreds of shades and high-quality options. Whether it’s for environmental or health reasons – or both, it’s easy to make the “green” choice for your next painting project with HISBIZ PAINTING. Here’s why:
1) We offer low and zero-VOC paints and stains
VOCs (or “Volatile Organic Compounds”) are chemicals that are used in the manufacture of cleaning or personal care products, building materials, and interior furnishing. They are designed to help maintain the texture and stability of these products. However, these chemicals can easily be released into the air and thus, become ‘volatile.’ In some people, VOCs can trigger physical sensitivities or irritations, dizziness, fatigue or allergic reactions.
When it comes to paint, the majority of VOCs is released upon application. But depending on the product, they can slowly leak into the air for several years.
Many paint manufacturers, including Sherwin Williams, have recognized the importance of eliminating VOCs in their interior latex paint products. Look for specialty lines like ProMar and Harmony.
Containing Zero-VOC formulas, these products feature odor-eliminating technology designed to improve indoor air quality. In other words, the zero VOC formula actively helps reduce odors from potential sources like pets, carpets, cabinets, and fabrics.
Ask our regional paint manager, Justin Baldwin, for a free consultation to determine the best option for your eco-friendly green home paint project.
Our technicians are trained professionals and certified in lead paint containment. Lead-based paint and lead contaminated dust are the most hazardous sources of lead for children. Lead-based paints became illegal in 1978, but all homes built before 1978 likely contain some level of lead paint.
However, it’s not necessarily the paint itself that causes the most problems. It’s its deterioration.
This is a bigger issue than most people think! Our team fields questions about lead paint and its removal every month to this date! If you have questions on how to safely contain lead paint in your home, please give us a call. We can help keep your home “green.”
3) We Dispose and Recycle Responsibly
We carefully calculate the required quantities of paint for each paint project. This practice is essential for minimizing the cost for the customer, as well as reducing leftover paint and waste.
Leftover paint products from each project are stored with the customer for future repairs of wear-and-tear, and touch-ups.
Our technicians take responsibility in cleaning gear in a contained space, keeping all chemicals from entering the water / ground water systems. Oil paint and hazardous chemical waste are recycled safely via our local recycling center.
