Tips for eco-responsible finishing products

Using good finishing products should improve the quality of the air in your home. To choose the right products, you need to pay special attention to product composition, since some kinds of paint, stain, primer and varnish contain petroleum derivatives and emit volatile organic compounds (VOCs) when they are applied and as they dry. Painted surfaces may even continue to give off volatile organic compounds for several months. These substances are toxic. They can cause coughing, dizzy spells, headaches and eye irritations. Volatile organic compounds also contribute to smog, which erodes outdoor air quality and especially affects people who suffer from asthma, allergies and cardiovascular disease. As if that’s not enough, many volatile organic compounds contain carcinogens.
