HOUSING AND HEALTH
If you have allergies, you should take a very close look at the contents of paint regarding any components which could trigger allergies or an allergic reaction.
Allergies are on the rise
Medical professionals are worriedly observing that the number people experiencing allergic reactions are on the rise – as is the number of substances they are reacting to. Allergies are pathological hyperfunctions of the body's own immune system. Children also react significantly more sensitively than adults. Even low concentrations of harmful substances can affect their health and trigger allergic reactions and allergies.
What you should look out for...
Many interior paints contain solvents, non-volatile plasticisers and preservatives. Any of these substances could trigger an allergic reaction. The goal of responsible builders should be to create a healthy living space and keep the contact with allergens as low as possible.
Otherwise, what is the point in having the most beautiful walls imaginable if they emit harmful substances that contaminate the ambient air and endanger health?
