Did you know that indoor air is three times more polluted than outdoor air?

Paints and finishes are among the leading causes. According to the EPA, exposure to VOC's in paint can trigger asthma attacks, eye-irritation, respiratory problems, nausea and dizziness. Prolonged exposure has been linked to kidney disease, liver disease and even cancer.

Mr. Paint can help you minimize your exposure and contribute to the environment by using low VOC paints.

Paints and finishes release low level toxic emissions into the air for years after application. The source of these toxins is a variety of volatile organic compounds (VOCs) which until recently were essential to the performance of the paint. New environmental regulations, and consumer demand, have led to the development of low-VOC and non-VOC paints and finishes. Most paints used by Mr. Paint are of the low-VOC variety. These new paints are durable, cost-effective and less harmful to human health and the environment. This creates a healthier environment for our staff and you to live/work in.


Benefits of Low-VOC paints:

  • Reduced toxins benefit everyone, including those with allergies and chemical sensitivities.
  • Reduces landfill, groundwater and ozone depleting contaminants.
  • Low-VOC products perform well in terms of coverage, wash ability and hide.
  • Easy cleanup with soap and warm water (Water-Based).
  • Little or No Hazardous Fumes.
  • Low odour during application; no odour once cured.
  • Painted areas can be occupied sooner, with no odour complaints.
  • Not Deemed Hazardous Waste.
  • Cleanup and disposal greatly simplified.
