Here in Rhode Island as soon as the spring season rolls in, we start prepping for outdoor home repairs. Whether you are a homeowner or a property manager, ’tis the season for post-winter maintenance and upgrades. Before the heat of summer take advantage of this time to give your property a makeover. Choose an eco-friendly paint based on advice from your local home painter serving Wakefield, Newport, Providence, and Coventry.
About Low VOC Paints
The first thing to look for when picking out the best eco paint is the level of VOCs or volatile organic compounds. You want to find a low VOC paint for the most ecologically sustainable option. A low VOC paint paired with sustainable paint brushes and rollers provides your crew with an eco-safe painting setup. Bamboo handles on paint brushes, as well as reusable products made from recycled materials, help improve the eco vibes for your painting project.
Once you start working with the painting process, make sure to provide air quality control. Reduce the amount of airborne particles coming from the paint and help protect the environment. This may be as simple as avoiding spray painting in favor of rollers to reduce spray.
Disposal and Waste Removal
Another area for your focus should be on the way you are going to dispose of any unused paints. Find out how to handle hazardous household waste disposals right from the source. Check with the Rhode Island Resource Recovery Corporation (RIRRC) to see where there is a Paint Care drop-off location nearby.
These Paint Care locations are in the cities and towns of Westerly, Glocester, Hopkinton, West Warwick, and Little Compton. Keep in mind the state requires you to properly dispose of paint in a hazmat friendly facility, which can also be a third-party site not affiliated with Paint Care.
You can also reach out to our office and let us handle the process for you. As a leading commercial painting business near Providence, RI, we are ready to provide you with the best in sustainable painting solutions for your residential or commercial property.
