All paints contain petroleum based solvents, commonly known as Volatile Organic Compounds (VOC), which evaporate into the air.
In water based paints VOC's are included to achieve good coverage, improved brushability, reduce working time, increase film hardness and help with ease of application.
Bob De Groot Painting Contractors use Haymes low VOC paints to reduce off-gassing while drying, therefore creating a much healthier atmosphere for your family.
Choice magazine have rated Haymes low VOC paint the best on the market.
The painting and decorating industry have traditionally used large quantities of water to clean up painting equipment. On average it takes 30-35 litres of water to clean a standard roller and tray, and 4-8 litres to clean a house painting brush and pot.
An average painter will clean up 2-3 times a day, 5 times a week. As you can see, without implementing strict water conservation painting policies a large amount of water is wasted every year.
Bob De Groot Painting Contractors have progressively implemented water saving policies that have enabled us to reduce our water usage for an entire job to just 20 litres of water in total.

We ensure the job is done right, the first time.
