St Louis Paint Company is a green painting company that provides the
best quality green / environmental painting
services to homeowners. We use various types
of colors from top quality companies to decorate
homes in the St Louis area.
Why use green paint?
We have all opened a can of conventional latex paint and noticed the nasty smell. Nasty smell comes from Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs). Green Painting and finishes release low level toxic emissions into the air for years after application. The source of these toxins is a variety of VOC's which, until recently, were essential to the performance of the paint. VOC's are the solvents in paint which evaporate easily at room temperature "causing the smelly odor, bad for people and the environment. VOCs are thought to be contributors to the depletion of the ozone layer, as well as contributors to poor indoor air quality!
There are safer, more environmentally friendly alternatives to conventional paints.
Acrylic enamels instead of oil base are extremely durable. One benefit is that they never yellow! Consider this GREEN alternative for your woodwork!
Another benefit of acrylics v/s oils is that acrylics are water cleanup, no harsh solvents are required.
A third benefit of acrylics comes in the form of price. Because no solvents are required (some solvents are as much as $13.00 per gallon) you save $$$$!!!
We also offer a whole range of Wall and Ceiling paints that are very low VOC or zero VOC. (This means green!)
One product in particular is Benjamin Moores, Aura paint. It is zero VOC. Even the colorants used are water based!, So in addition to cleaning up with water, it takes even less water to clean up.
We offer water based primers for exterior applications and we always use water based latex paint on exteriors!
We want to keep our earths land, water and air clean and livable for the next generations to come. We can do this by choosing green solutions to painting.
Benefits of Nontoxic Paint:
Reduced toxins benefit everyone, including those with allergies and chemical sensitivities.
Reduces landfill, groundwater and ozone depleting contaminants.
Low-VOC products perform well in terms of coverage, scrubability and hideability (covering flaws on previous coats).
- Easy water cleanup.
- Little or no hazardous fumes.
- Low odor during application, no odor once cured
- No off-gassing.
- Painted areas can be occupied sooner with no odor complaints. Not deemed hazardous waste. Cleanup and disposal greatly simplified.
Consumers can help speed the development and lower the cost of non-toxic paints by choosing products which contain fewer hazardous ingredients. Choosing to use nontoxic, environmentally safe paints and stains can also greatly reduce the amount of toxins in the air, water and earth.
