How to Keep Health Risks at Bay While Painting

Painting your house is one of the most exciting activities to do. It completely transforms your house. While a fresh coat of paint elevates the look of your house from drab to delightful, you don’t want to end up inhaling fumes of the paint that can cause nausea, dizziness, and headache. When renovating or doing maintenance, care must be taken to ensure that your health safety is a priority.

That’s why we have shared a few important tips to help you keep health risks at bay when painting your home:

1. Opt for paints that are low in VOC

The paint you choose plays an important role in determining your health safety. When shopping for decorative paints for your house, make sure to opt for the ones that have low VOC (Volatile Organic Compound) content.
Most paints that contain VOC release solvents into the air during their drying process and the presence of solvents in the air can lead to dizziness and headaches. Silk Breathe Easy from Berger Paints Nepal has been formulated to emit 90% less VOC than other paints.

Apart from low VOC content, the 100% acrylic water base wall coating also has a high sheen, is silky to touch, resistant to scrub, and has a long working life. Also, the wall coat is easy to maintain as it has a superior resistivity to stains. The paint can be used even in places where there are people with breathing issues. Learn more about Berger Silk Breathe Easy at www.bergernepal.com/product/detail/24.

2. Keep the rooms properly ventilated

One of the important factors to consider when painting your rooms is to ensure proper ventilation. Make sure to keep all the doors and windows open to let outside air circulate in the rooms.
Another effective way to ensure proper ventilation in freshly-painted rooms is to use ceiling and exhaust fans. Make sure that you or your family members do not occupy the rooms that are freshly painted.

3. Wear proper safety equipment

Whether you are painting your home by yourself or regularly inspecting the work in progress, it’s important to wear proper safety equipment such as a respirator mask/dust mask, safety goggles, and gloves. Make sure that everybody in the painting room wear these safety equipment in order to steer clear of the health risks.

4. Avoid leaving fresh paint near a heat source

One of the must-avoids when painting your rooms is to make sure that you don’t leave the freshly painted areas near a heat source such as a heater, a geyser, a fireplace. This is because fresh paint can combust when exposed to heat sources.

5. Clean the rooms properly after old paint is removed

If you are not new to painting your rooms, you’d know that painters remove the old paint prior to applying a new primer coat. And when chipping off the old paint, a lot of dust and debris gets accumulated.

When cleaning the dust and debris, make sure to use damp cloth pieces. Do not sweep them in order to avoid them from flying off into the air and creating a dusty environment.

Berger Paints Nepal is committed to the idea of a sustainable future. It is for this that our Silk Breathe Easy has low VOC and doesn’t contain lead, mercury, and chromium. To know more about environment-friendly practices, visit www.bergernepal.com/.

Tricks to Keep your Walls Cool in Summer

A cool ambience works wonders in beating the summer heat. Creating a cool ambience in your rooms in a natural way may seem a bit challenging but there are plenty of ways of how you can do it. Here are a few ways that will lend an air of coolness to your house:

1.Go for light colors: One no-fail way is to paint your rooms’ walls in light colors. Unlike darker colors, lighter shades do not absorb much heat and go easy on the eyes. Nothing beats light blue when it comes to creating a cool ambience in your rooms. Apart from helping you create a cool and an easy-going ambience, light blue can also lend an air of sophistication when paired with other light colors such as creamy white, beige, and faded pink. Our light blue shade, Frosted Ice (5P0123) has a balanced tone; its soothing aesthetic calms the visual senses and puts the beholders at ease. This light blue shade looks best when illuminated by sunlight. As such, living and bedroom walls that are directly exposed to natural light make the perfect canvas.

2. Reduce direct sunlight: Direct sunlight can increase the indoor temperature of the house. Try to keep direct sunlight away from the room. However, if you don’t want your room to look discolored, go for a color that mimics sunlight. Light yellow is the perfect pick for you. Unlike other lighter colors, light yellow has an intrinsic lively character which works great for imparting an element of fun in your rooms. A light yellow shade like our hue Soft Sarong (3P0068) makes a perfect pick for creating a cool ambience in your rooms while adding a flair of modernness to your favorite spaces. Use this shade to introduce an element of play into your bathroom walls.

3. Invest in quality curtains to keep the heat out: Utilizing shades, curtains and drapes can help you not only to keep the room cool, but they can also help reduce your power bills. You can also invest in a combination of thick blinds and sheer curtains. Whenever you want to experience the view, you can just draw the sheer curtain. Go for colors that are easy on eyes and give your room a classy feel.

4. Bring some plants in: One of the most effective and cheapest ways to keep your house cool in warm weather is to bring in some plants. Plants consume hot air and create a cool ambience. When you adorn your home with plants, they make space feel bright, lively, and gorgeous. You can either create a little lovely shrine in your balcony or place them in different corners of your house.

Simple Ways to Waterproof your Exterior Walls

The exterior of your home makes the first impression of your personality even before your guests step into your house. It’s important that the exterior walls are bright and shiny. However, unlike interior walls, exterior walls are exposed to sunlight, rainwater, and high humidity. Too much exposure to the water and humidity cannot just bring down the overall look of the exterior walls, it can also penetrate the walls through gaps and cracks. This can further lead to issues with the internal walls. But how would you prevent damp patches and moulds from affecting your walls? The best way to do this is damp proofing.

Damp proofing prevents unwanted moisture from seeping into your walls, keeping your walls dry and mould-free. If you are looking forward to getting your exterior walls dampproofed, here are a few tips that will help you get started:

1. Clean the surface: The first step before starting to dampproof is to get rid of cracks, moulds, and leaks in your wall. Not fixing cracks, moulds, and leaks can leave your walls vulnerable to humidity and water. Fill the cracks with sealants to avoid problems in the near future. Make sure to sand flaky surfaces. Doing this step will prevent bubbling during the painting stage. Also allow the fillers to dry completely. Once it dries, sand away uneven areas and remove the dust so that the end result is smooth and even.

2. Check all the gutter spaces: Clogged gutters causes water stagnation and then eventually get absorbed by the wall. This is true for roofs and fascia boards. Just by removing water from these gutter spaces, you can avoid long-term problems. Cleaning gutters at least twice or thrice in a year can help.

3. Select a high quality waterproofer: A good quality waterproofer can help protect your exterior walls from external moisture. Go for a waterproofing solution that provides a thick coating which protects your external walls for a long time. Depending upon your need, apply one or two coats of the waterproofer. Before applying the second, wait for the first one to dry. To create a strong barrier against water infiltration, make sure that you use enough material.

4. Choose the exterior wall coating carefully: It’s important that after waterproofing you choose a decorative exterior coating which is formulated to repel the rainwater and create a protective barrier. Cheap exterior paints cannot create an impermeable envelope around the building and thus it’s important that you invest in decorative exterior paints wisely. The ideal weather to get waterproofing done is summer. Winter is not the right weather to do this as low temperatures and high moisture concentrations render waterproofing less efficient.

Give your walls the protection of WeatherCoat Long Life

WeatherCoat Long Life is designed for heavy rainfall areas and provides excellent protection against extreme rain. Designed on PU & Silicon Technology with 10 years warranty, WeatherCoat Long Life has an unmatched sheen. It will protect the exterior walls from dampness and moisture.
