Painting Express Chicago is Eco - Friendly 

Painting Express is committed to offering homeowners the option of eco-friendly paints. We understand that every business and individual has a choice in helping the environment. Talk to our project manager about going green with your paint project. VOC stands for volatile organic compounds. Paints with low-VOC or no-VOC paints are great choices for interior painting projects as they allow a faster move in time due to reduced odors from the paint.

When selecting a paint for your interior/exterior painting project look for the following:

• Paints that are low-VOC or no-VOC
• GREENGUARD certification
• Latex base or acrylic base paints are biodegradeable.
• Oil based paints require paint thinners or mineral spirits to clean which are harmful to environment
• Recyclable paints
• Look for eco-friendly paints that have custom color palettes as not all come with the option for custom tinting.


According to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), the air inside a home is, on average, two-to-five-times more polluted than the air outside. As the emphasis of environmental concern shifts from outside to inside, paint is a large contributing factor to poor indoor air quality and can emit harmful chemicals, such as VOCs, for years after application.
