Over the past week the corridor outside my office at County Hall has been repainted. Unfortunately, for some strange reason, solvent based paints are being used.
Solvent based paints are not only bad for the environment but also a Health and Safety risk to those in County Hall. As ventilation is next to nil many will have experienced headaches including myself.
With 36 years experience as a Painter and Decorator, 33 of those running my own business, I use water based and acrylic paints 99% of the time.
Indeed places like hospitals and prisons insist on the use of water based paints. There is no significant difference in cost.
I have requested ERYC do the same with immediate effect.
