What is Low VOC Paint?
Volatile organic compounds (VOC) help the paint dry. They are also the cause of that freshly-painted smell. The largest number of these chemical compounds are released while the paint is drying. But some of these compounds are released for years.
As they evaporate, these compounds deliver carbon into the environment. They also aggravate breathing issues and asthma, cause headaches, sore throats, and other short-term issues. Long-term exposure to these compounds can cause problems with the liver, kidneys, and cognitive process. Some are carcinogens and linked to cancer.
A Note About Lead Abatement
Due to the historic nature of Newton, lead paint is still heavily present in our homes and commercial buildings. Lead is dangerous to your family. Unless properly renovated, it can contaminate our children, the soil, and the air in our neighborhoods.
ProTEk Painters are certified renovators who are trained by EPA-approved training providers and follow lead-safe work practices.
Green Painters Always Recycle
Keeping garbage out of landfills is an important step to protecting our air, water, and soil. We clean the site at the end of every job, so you do not have to worry about disposal. We reuse and recycle tools and materials as often as possible.
ProTEK leaves extra paint with you, for touchups. When it comes time to recycle paint, extra care must be taken. Even no-VOC paint contains chemicals that should stay out of the ground and water supply.

But ProTEK Painters makes it a priority to integrate ecological processes and materials in every way possible. We have been a part of the communities we serve for nearly two decades.
Being truly green painters is part of our commitment to sustaining Newton and the world for generations to come.
