Considering a new paint colour for your next room renovation or DIY project? While paint can change the look of furniture and even an entire room, its chemicals can also cause a variety of adverse health effects and contribute to air pollution. But here's the good news: healthier paint options exist, and at Mineheart we have Virtually VOC Free Paint available online so you can shop from the comfort of your own home. Use this guide to learn more about volatile organic compounds (VOCs), their impact on air quality, and to weigh your purchasing options.
VOC is an acronym that stands for Volatile Organic Compounds. The Environmental Protection Agency describes them as "organic chemical compounds whose composition makes it possible for them to evaporate under normal indoor atmospheric conditions." This basically means that VOCs are the invisible chemicals that we smell when we bring paint products, building materials, and even new furniture into our homes. The evaporation process is known as "off-gassing" and can last long after the smell of new paint wears off, possibly several years.
What are these chemicals exactly? Formaldehyde, d-limonene, toluene, acetone, and ethanol (and more) fall into this category. Consumers have experienced short-term and long-term health effects, including headaches, skin and respiratory irritation, central nervous system problems, and even certain forms of cancer. According to the EPA, VOCs can be up to two to five times higher indoors. However, there are steps you can take to lower the levels in your homes.
Laws and regulations around VOCs change frequently. To further complicate matters, VOC regulations can also differ from state to state. While low VOC paint lines are widely available and used, they still contain the chemicals and harmful exhaust gases, although less than traditional paint products historically. The main differentiator is that brands that offer VOC-free paint do not add VOC chemicals to their mixes, resulting in a product that could have only traces, if any.
So now that you know what VOCs are, what can you do about it? At Mineheart our paint meets zero VOC emission standards (containing 5g / L or less VOC) and are willing to disclose their test results to consumers. It is also important that a non-VOC brand of paint also does not include VOC in its tinting process. VOCs can be present in colorants even if they are not present in a primer mix.
