Green trends are on the rise. Everybody is going green!
Is it really true or is it just a saying? We hear about hybrid cars, green roofing, solar energy, and green building certifications. In the stores we can find many green products – from house cleaning products to beauty cosmetics as well as all kinds of organic foods. But do we as consumers take advantage of all this?
How many times have you have been close to or involved in a painting project, especially in your own home, where the painter has asked you if you were concerned about your health or your family‘s? Did they offer you the choice of selecting green and eco-friendly paints?
There are already plenty of eco-friendly paints from different manufacturers that are available to the consumer. We take advantage of the innovations in environmentally friendly painting supplies, and offer them to you, our client! We generally use Sherwin Williams paints both for its low environmental impact and its safety standard for personal health.
Finishing Touch – UnFauxGettable is dedicated to the highest degree of quality and service, paying special attention to the health affects and environmental impact of each project. Actively researching and testing the latest eco-friendly technologies, we ensure that the paints, finishes, and adhesives used are all zero-VOC when possible and that our cleaning supplies meet the highest standards to mitigate exposure to environmental toxins. We practice smart recycling techniques to reduce waste often associated with contracting projects, which in turn benefits our environment. Additionally, as a creative independent agency, we are able to provide customized services including creative finishes, mural, Venetian marble and other textural surfaces.
What is VOC? It is the Volatile Organic Compound found in paints and finishes and is released for 8 years after application. This process, known as ‘off-gassing’ is considered by the EPA to contribute to the fact that indoor air is three times more polluted than outdoor air and is one of the top 5 hazards to human health.
First and foremost, quality is paramount. Second, our projects are clean. Every surface is properly masked with recycled paper and canvas drop-cloth. Total protection is ensured. Third, we believe in a collaborative process to ensure your satisfaction. We will happily work with your interior designer, provide you with our own, or make an informed recommendation concerning color and wall covering. We hope for each project to become a customized experience tailoring our service to the needs of the client, be it with special scheduling or renovating the house you live in all the time or your house by the lake or the summer cottage out of town.
By selecting a Low/Zero VOC painting project you will limit exposure to harmful petrochemicals while achieving the highest degree of professionalism and excellence.
