Kitchener painting companies like CertaPro Painters of Waterloo can help with more than just the physical parts of painting your home.

To do this, she had the effective idea of painting each section a separate colour; this resulted in a simple yet elegant way to define the areas of the room. While your home may not have the need for such drastic methods, you’ll still need to pick out the right colour for your rooms. Here are a few tips on how to do just that.

With paint manufacturers across continents compelled to comply with their governments’ regulations to limit toxic paint emissions that harm the environment, paint makers all over, including established painting companies in Kitchener, are introducing more eco-friendly paints in the market.

According to UK-based Ethical Consumers, plant-based, water-borne paints are better choices than plant-based, solvent-borne ones with natural solvents. VOCs are vapours from paint solvents that affect the air quality we breathe. Some people are more sensitive than others, but with extended exposure to the toxic fumes, most people experience eye, nose and throat irritation or headaches, and worse, particularly with children, develop asthma and respiratory-related allergies. To prevent this, as much as possible avoid products with titanium dioxide as whitener. While the governments from both sides of the continents are taking steps to restrict VOC in paints, your professional residential Kitchener painters can educate you on how to spot the least-polluting paints.
