Indoor Air Pollution
To provide you with a safer and healthier living environment, our paint purifies the air and protects you from indoor air pollution.
What really is indoor air pollution, and why is it a cause for concern?
We spend 90% of our time indoors. Because indoor air pollution is potentially 3-5 times worse than outdoor air pollution, it comes as no surprise that consumers are becoming increasingly mindful of air quality levels at home.
Indoor air pollution manifests itself in more ways than one, and often hidden in plain sight. As a result, most people are unaware of how to spot them, as well as the health consequences that result from it.
VOCs (Volatile Organic Compounds) are linked to respiratory problems, organ toxicity, failure in your kidneys and liver, damage to the central nervous system, stunted development in children, and an increased risk in cancer.
Be aware of the products you use. VOCs like formaldehyde, benzene and toulene (mostly odourless) are released from harmless-looking everyday products like cosmetics, cleaning products, air fresheners, moth balls, carpets, and aerosol sprays.
VOC levels are extremely high after a renovation*, because they are also found in traditional building materials like furniture coatings, varnish, adhesives and traditional paint.
*TVOC (Total VOC) Standards: Healthy Level < 200 µg/m3, Post Renovation Level ≈ 4000 µg/m3
Thrives in humid environments, and spreads through spores which may be found on your walls, mattress, couch, curtains, drawers, and aerosolized from toilet water.
Besides affecting the aesthetics of your interior environment, a person exposed to mould may experience nasal congestion, allergy symptoms, sinus, respiratory tract infections, and more severe symptoms if you are an asthmatic.
Particulate Matter (PM2.5)
Microscopic particles that are smaller than 2.5 microns, including smoke, dust mites, bacteria, pollen and pet dander.
Asthmatics and people with allergies are not the only people to be concerned, however, as PM2.5 can find their way to the deepest portions of your lungs and may cause lung diseases, emphysema and lung cancer.
PM2.5 Standards: Healthy Level < 15 µg/m3, Post Renovation Level > 200 µg/m3
