Winter in Indianapolis is a Good Time to Paint Interiors

The interior paints available today allows for interior painting year around.  Even in Indianapolis in the dead of winter, you can get your interior painted without the smell of paint lingering for a week or longer.  I’ve noticed over the past  few winters, that my painting company, Greg Mrakich Painting of Indianapolis, Indiana is getting more calls for interior painting during the winter months than I did five years ago.  It used to be with the old formula paint that your house had that “just painted” smell for weeks after the painting was done, even in the warmer months when windows could be left open to air the house out.

Over the past 20 years, the EPA has regulated the paint formulas to take harmful chemicals out of the air as the paint dried.  These chemicals known as VOCs,  helped  paint cover better, be more stable and dry quicker but left a distinctive paint smell. Now homeowners can choose a very low VOC paint that has almost no smell after drying, or a zero VOC paint that has no smell at all. These paints are great for use in offices and restaurants and in homes where medical or environmental concerns warrant its use.

If you are thinking of painting the interior of your house, there is no need to wait until Spring with these zero or low VOC paints available today. Plus, painting your interior in winter is also a great way to beat the winter blahs.
