Over the past century, cars and factories have released carbon dioxide and other greenhouse gases into the air, trapping the sun’s energy and warming the Earth. Often absent from this generalized equation is commercial paint’s overwhelming contribution. Considering it can be found virtually everywhere, this is an unfortunate and alarming circumstance. Conventional paints often contain high dosages of VOCs — carbon chemical compounds –– that readily evaporate and warm the atmosphere. Other common products emitting VOCs include gasoline and nail polish. Startlingly, twenty percent of hydrocarbon air pollution comes from manufactured synthetic paint. The only higher polluter is the motor transport industry.
Seeing that commercial paints are the most significant producer of indoor air quality problems, GreenWerks takes its responsibility as one of Chicago’s green painting contractor very seriously. EPA studies indicate that indoor air quality is five times as poor as the air outside. As a consequence of their residue that remains on surfaces for several years after initial painting application, VOCs are particularly harmful with indoor environments. Research suggests that the combination of VOCs and deteriorating lead-based paint are responsible for a variety of ailments, including lung cancer, leukemia, and upper respiratory failure among others.
