What Are VOCs?

Volatile organic compounds (VOCs) are gasses emitted from paints and stains. VOCs include a variety of chemicals, some of which may cause health problems. Concentrations of many VOCs are consistently higher indoors — up to ten times higher — than outdoors.

How We Reduce Airborne Toxins

On every job we follow these simple steps to improve your home’s air quality:

  • Make sure to ventilate clean air through your home
  • Keep dust controlled by using clean shop vac filters, tack clothes & microfibre dry mops
  • Use clean drop sheets that are washed regularly
  • Open windows & use commercial-grade fans to circulate air & decrease drying time
  • Use cleaning products that are phosphate-free, environmentally safe & biodegradable

VOC-Free?

Don’t confuse the terms “low VOCs” or “zero VOCs” to mean completely harmless. Even “green” products release trace amounts of chemicals into the air that some may find irritating. For it to be considered VOC-free, a product must contain no more than 5 grams of VOCs per litre.
