What is Air Purifying Paint and When to Use it to Enhance Your Home

Paint can do a lot more than you think. Yes, paint can add a splash of color or change the tone and feel of a room. But that's not all paint is capable of. Air purifying paint, for example, can improve your home’s air quality while also creating a bright and aesthetically pleasing space. To learn more about air purifying paints, what they do, and who can benefit from using them, continue reading.

What is air purifying paint?

ECOS air purifying products contain a molecular sieve that's designed to both stop harmful volatile organic compounds (VOCs) from being released into the air and to trap them as they float through a room. The sieve’s non-toxic crystalline tubes are designed to filter specific harmful VOCs, including formaldehyde, glycol, and benzene.  These air purifying paints are engineered to improve the air quality within your home without the harsh odors of traditional paints.

Use Air Purifying Paints to Remove and Seal in Chemicals

Air purifying paints, primers, and varnish are often used to seal a surface that’s releasing VOCs into the air. By trapping VOCs, the air purifying product stops them from escaping into the air and contaminating the indoor environment.

Who should use it?

Anyone suffering from allergies or asthma should take advantage of the health benefits associated with this water-based, non-toxic* paint. If you have recently moved into an apartment with poor ventilation, for example, a quick coat of this paint can also help you breathe better and feel more comfortable in your new space. What's more, anyone can benefit from this type of paint, as it does not contain the harmful VOCs typically found in conventional paint products that can contribute to negative health symptoms.

What are the benefits?

With a fresh coat of paint, your home or apartment will look and feel enhanced, of course. But using an air purifying paint means you'll also be less susceptible to harmful pollutants in the air. This paint also comes in multiple finishes, including matte, eggshell, semi-gloss, and gloss. Select from one of our colors or order a free color match to align with your home's unique style. With multiple finish and color options, air purifying paint is endlessly versatile and can be used to paint bathrooms, kitchens, living rooms, and bedrooms - making it an obvious choice for any renovation.

Breathe easier in a gorgeously renovated and newly painted space

Health-focused paint like air purifying paint can help make a difference in your home’s air quality and possibly improve your allergies. If you are interested in purchasing air purifying paint for your next home renovation project, do not hesitate to place your order and see what a difference it can make in creating a healthier home.
