Brighten your walls without the ‘fresh paint’ smell

This post was sponsored by Dulux Canada.

No one likes to watch paint dry. And no one likes to smell it either.

man painting wallWhen turning over a unit, a fresh coat of paint is an economical way to lend a fresh feeling to a tenant’s new home. Non-profit housing providers, operating on tight timelines and tight budgets, can reduce the “air out” time needed after a unit is painted by choosing an odourless paint.

Paint odour can pose a challenge to property managers who are painting units during a tenant turnover, or who are painting occupied common spaces in a building, like hallways or lobbies. The smell of fresh paint can linger for days, which can be a nuisance for tenants and maintenance staff.

Dulux’s Ultra Zero VOC, a new line of professional quality interior latex paint, is virtually odourless during and after application. Additionally, Ultra Zero contains no Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs), chemicals that evaporate into surrounding air and give off scent, which can reduce indoor air quality and trigger health problems.

The Ultra Zero VOC line is self-priming over previously painted surfaces and applies easily, giving a smooth finish with no brush or drag marks. The line is available in a white base, in flat, eggshell, pearl, and semi-gloss sheens.
