Benjamin Moore and other paint brands offer paints that are known as “low or no VOC”. VOC refers to “volatile organic compound”. VOCs can negatively impact the health of your family. VOCs are carcinogenic and as a result, long-term exposure to VOCs can impact the health of your liver, kidney, and central nervous system.
As a result of expanded research, Benjamin Moore and other companies have developed paint with low or no VOCs. While low/no VOC paint may need to be applied more frequently, there are many benefits such as:
- Same application practice with similar price point
- Odor Free
- Do not release pollutants making them ideal for people with any type of health concern
- Improved air quality
No or low VOC paint is a superior, cost-effective painting option that is safe for the environment and the homeowner. Consider using it for your next project!
