Our decorators are equipped with the tools to ensure that your paint is smoothly and evenly distributed on all surfaces.
Spraying can be particularly useful for projects with a tight timescale, or for painting hard-to-reach places, but it also gives a superior finish. Of course, there’s nothing to stop us using traditional rollers and brushes, but whether it’s a case of spraying, brushes or rollers, it’s generally true that it’s the quality of the preparatory work that has the biggest influence on the lasting quality of the end results.
Our project managers will advise on the different forms of preparation that might be optional or essential for a interior painting. These might include measures such as bleaching the walls to eradicate mould and fungal growth, for example, a process that might be followed by a power- wash or steam-cleaning.
There has been a huge rise in Environmentally-Friendly products in recent years. TCPS has embraced these changes and we are happy to say that these products now account for 45% of the materials we supplied last year, and that we also expect those numbers to keep on rising! We do everything for our interior painting to be the highest quallity.
About Eco-Friendly paints
Eco-Friendly and Organic paints, oils, waxes, and varnishes are products that only tend to contain natural raw materials. Solvent-free, they don’t cause the irritation or the serious health problems with which some older, more traditional materials have been associated.
Naturally enough, the Organic and Eco-Friendly alternatives are also much kinder to the planet. One area in which compromise remains inevitable is in the occasional use of tiny amounts of a synthetic, lead- free drier, since there is currently no natural alternative available. This drier constitutes less than 0.3% of the total volume of the product and is only used where necessary in some wood finishes. Importantly, the Eco-Friendly group of products tend to be free of Volatile Organic Compound (VOC); a solvent particularly common in traditional paints and protective coatings.
These products require solvents in order to enable the even spreading of a protective or decorative film. With approximately 12 billion litres of paints produced every year, there’s the potential for an awful lot of VOC in the environment. The term VOC refers to certain chemical compounds that have significant vapour pressures that can affect the environment and damage human health. VOCs are numerous, varied, and ever-present. Although they include both man-made and naturally-occurring chemical compounds, it is the anthropogenic VOCs that are regulated, especially for use indoors where concentrations can be highest. Typically, VOCs are not acutely toxic, but they do have chronic effects. If the health and environmental benefits weren’t persuasive enough, the use of natural elements actually enables the production of stronger, richer, more vivid colours and pigmentation than industrially – produced synthetic products.
Most Eco-Friendly products can be identified by the presence of the EU’s Ecolabel.
