VOC stands for Volatile Organic Compound. Conventional paint contains VOC’s when still in a wet state; because of this, after being applied to a surface, a distinct odor lingers until the paint has dried. While this odor is harmful only when wet, there are circumstances that may require building inhabitants to be exposed to these VOC’s for extended periods of time , such as in a corporate office setting where business must continue throughout a painting project.
What is the solution?
Low-VOC paint is manufactured to minimize the presence of these harmful compounds in the paint itself. If the customer desires, Egert Painting will utilize low-VOC materials that do not sacrifice quality. You and your employees will enjoy little to no odor left by these materials.
