Paint Safety

Paint Squad only uses no or low VOC paint and materials. Volatile organic compounds (VOCs) are organic chemicals that have a high vapor pressure at ordinary room temperature. Their high vapor pressure results from a low boiling point, which causes large numbers of molecules to evaporate or sublimate from the liquid or solid form of the compound and enter the surrounding air.

Top quality manufacturers such as Sherwin Williams, Benjamin Moore and Dunn Edwards are reducing the amount of volatile organic compounds (VOCs)--some of the noxious chemicals that can make paint smell like paint--in their products, in response to stricter federal standards. VOCs can cause headaches and dizziness, and are linked to pollution, smog, and respiratory problems. Earlier low-VOC paints lacked the durability of higher-VOC finishes, but now all of the paints used by Paint Squad have low or no-VOCs and perform very well.

As with interior paints, manufacturers typically reformulate exterior paints often, partly to meet tougher federal standards limiting volatile organic compounds. Reducing VOCs in exterior paint without compromising performance had been a challenge, but now low-VOC paints are readily available and proudly the only ones used by Paint Squad.
