Eco Paints Are Important For A Healthy Environment According To Ratedpeople.com

September 4, 2009

LONDON, UK (RPRN) 09/04/09 — Ratedpeople.com, the UK’s largest match making service for home improvers and recommended tradesmen, suggests that home owners and decorators alike should consider using paints that are low in volatile organic compounds (VOCs) - gases that can be potentially harmful to the environment and your health.

Paints that are created entirely from ecologically safe compounds are far better for the environment, as there is a significantly reduced hazard from pollution. There are arguments that traditional paints are superior in quality to eco paints, but manufacturers have indicated that eco paints are just as good so long as they are applied to a surface in the correct way.

The VOCs in paints are continuously released after the painting process and can still be found on walls up to 5 years after decoration, meaning that the polluting effect of traditional paints may even stretch to walls that were painted a while ago.

As a result, it is suggested that home owners maintain an awareness of paints containing high levels of VOCs, and consider using natural paints that are low in VOCs whenever they undertake a decoration or paint related project.

Ottokar Rosenberger, Sales and Marketing Director of Ratedpeople.com, said: “Natural paints are low in VOCs, and have the qualities of being odourless and free of solvents. They are also of huge benefit to the environment in terms of pollution and sustainability.”

“VOCs are contained within a wide range of DIY related materials, like pesticides, building materials and furnishing treatments. We therefore recommend that if home owners are worried about the impact of VOCs on their health, they make sure that when using qualified professionals for home improvements they check with their tradesmen that the products they use have lower levels of VOCs in them.”

Whether seeking anything from recommended decorators though to local builders and recommended plumbers, Ratedpeople.com can find interested tradesmen from 25 different trades for home owners who are looking to improve their properties.

Every month, Ratedpeople.com manages over £30m in home improvement projects with more than 1,000 tradesmen signing up, making it the UK’s largest match making service for home improvers and recommended tradesmen. The site has more than 55,000 ratings to date and its system ensures that tradesmen are only rated by the customers who find them through the site. The result is one of the fairest and most robust rating systems on the net.
