Chose low or no VOC paint.
Volatile organic compounds (VOCs) are emitted as gases from some household painting products. Some of these VOCs may have short- and long-term adverse health effects.
These health effects can include eye, nose and throat irritation; headaches, loss of coordination, nausea, or damage to liver, kidney and central nervous system.
Look for paints that list “Low VOC or zero VOC” on their labels.
