Is Your Raleigh Interior Painting Contractor Eco-Friendly?
As a consumer, you must do your homework. Just because your painting contractor belongs to an organization and uses the term “Green,” that does not mean they are who they claim.
Generally, when talking about eco-friendly painting, most homeowners automatically think of painting products. Green paints are a given when considering environmentally safe painting applications.
However, green products are just the start.
Your painting contractor should also clearly make efforts above and beyond buying low VOC paints. To be considered a green painting company, A Touch of Color feels you have to make efforts to lower the company’s carbon footprint.
Think of how your contractor affects Raleigh, NC’s economy, and the environment. Do they just through around the word green? Are they using acceptable safe green practices? How is the company making efforts to recycle or reuse tools or supplies?
These few questions are among many that you should ask yourself before you are fooled into thinking that your painting contractor is “green.”
If your contractor has nothing further to offer than just Zero VOC paints, it is most likely only lip service. For exterior green painting services, while working with lead, the paint contractor should be EPA Lead Certified.
