We’re honored to have been quoted as an industry expert by Redfin in an article about painting trends in 2019. They asked us about how to reduce toxins in the home while painting, and our response was that choosing your type of paint has the biggest impact on exposure to toxins. It’s easy to avoid the harmful chemicals of past times by using non-toxic paint and materials. In the rare occasion that you need to use toxic paint indoors, keeping your windows open and fans on for 24-48 hours after painting will help.
The BEST way to avoid toxins, though, is to take a vacation while the project is going on :) It’s a great feeling to go away on vacation and come back to a rejuvenated home!
