Effects on Air Quality: Painting Indoors

Painting is a wonderful way to breathe new life into your rooms. Unfortunately, it can also have adverse effects on air quality. Let’s take a closer look at how paints can degrade your indoor air quality and the precautions you can take to avoid being adversely affected by them.

Painting and VOCs

Safety Precautions

You can take precautions to reduce the chemicals that paint releases into your home’s air.

The above practices will help you minimize and mitigate indoor painting’s negative effects on air quality. For more ways to improve your home’s IAQ, contact the professionals at Jackson and Sons Heating and Air.
