Most of us dont know what VOCs are and to be honest, we really dont need all the science nerd facts and figures. What we really need to understand is why theyre bad for us.
Volatile organic compounds are gasses given off by many household items, including paint, carpets and furniture. Its that new carpet and fresh paint smell we all recognize.
Turns out, over time and with a lot of exposure, these chemicals have been linked to headaches, allergies, irritated eyes and throats, dizziness or fatigue, even nausea. Nasty.
The government of Canada limits the use of VOCs in paint to very low levels, but even so, were working towards getting the levels even lower.
Which is why weve introduced CIL PREMIUM at Home Depot Stores across Canada.
PREMIUM contains no VOCs and, even better, the tints that we use to create all our beautiful colours are now low VOC, so you get all the gorgeous colour you want, but without the nasty smell.
The end result? You can move right back into your room practically before the paints dry and you wont be overwhelmed with that fresh paint smell. And youll sleep better knowing youre not breathing in anything nasty (from the paint anything else youre breathing in is SO not our fault).
