Painting that Neutralizes Pollutants and Exhaust Gas

How would you feel if I told you that there is a paint for painting walls in the house that can neutralize pollutants and exhaust fumes? And yet, there is and I am here to give you all the details.

By choosing to paint with Gikas Painting Painters NJ, you are sure that you have chosen a top quality company that uses paints that will give value to the space you live in.

Gikas Painters use paint that has mild photocatalytic properties, i.e it helps to neutralize the exhaust gases and pollutants that are present in the house, while at the same time it provides strong antimicrobial action (even certified by an official body abroad). So, simply painting the spaces with paint will help to create a healthier atmosphere in your home! Innovative!

Also, these are colors that I really like because they are absolutely opaque, can withstand frequent washing and have a great matte finish. In addition, they are available in thousands of wonderful shades that I like (get inspiration here).

But let’s see together what are the steps for the right painting process

Before you start the process of painting your house (autumn is an ideal time to do it) you should do a proper preparation of your walls.

The walls should not have any dust before you start painting them

Good dusting The first thing we do in the beginning is to clean all the walls we intend to paint. You want your surfaces to be clean from dust and debris but also dry. To dust your walls simply put a piece of cloth on a broom and run all your walls from top to bottom to remove dust. Also do not forget that the paints are very resistant to frequent washing with detergents and are odorless. For me these are two very important qualities.

Preparing walls

To have a successful result you must prepare well the surface you want to paint. This means that you will have to scrape, fill holes, dents and cracks that may exist so that there are no imperfections on your surface. I will never forget this step since it is one of the most important. The positive thing with the colors of Paints is that even a small thing on the wall will not escape you since the matte finish can effectively “hide” the imperfections.

Painting tools

To paint yourself without the help of a specialist you will need a brush, a roller or an airless gun which you will find in stores that sell paints. To clean all your tools after painting, you will simply need warm soapy water.

Tip: If you get your clothes dirty with dye then you should know the following. Plastic paint comes out of clothes very easily because it is water based and does not contain hazardous solvents. Especially if the stain has not dried before, your job is very easy. Wash your clothes with plenty of water and rub them lightly. However, if the stain has dried you should take more drastic measures. Try rubbing rubbing alcohol on the stain and rubbing your clothes lightly. If it does not come out with the first, repeat as many times as needed.

Drying time

A wall will need around 1-2 hours to dry after painting. It will take 1-2 hours for a freshly painted room to dry.


Before you start painting, dilute the paint by adding a maximum of 150ml of pure tap water (about half a glass of water) for each liter of paint. Mix well and get started. My opinion is to apply two coats of paint for a perfect result. After the end of your work, close the container well and you will be able to use it again in the future if you need it. All you have to do is store it in a cool environment.

Matte result

If you love matte colors – I really like it – then the colors have everything you are looking for in one color. They give an incredibly beautiful and uniform matte effect that you have never seen before.

Vivid color that does not fade

The first thing I look at in a color when I am in the selection phase is to be vibrant, not to fade and not to lose its luster. Master’s bright white and thousands of vibrant shades stand the test of time and yellowing. This dye has strong antimicrobial activity, certified by the internationally recognized IMLS institute.

Children’s room

One very important thing that I want to emphasize and you should definitely keep in mind is that a children’s room should be painted with colors that will help keep away from your child pollutants, germs and exhaust fumes. Besides, how much to ventilate the room of your little one at winter months when temperatures are so low?

It is worth noting that in New Jersey there is an increase in the incidence of asthma in children in the last 10 years. Surveys of 1988 and 2002 have shown very worrying results, including that about 10% of children living in the greater area suffer from asthma, while the corresponding percentage reaches 11.7%. Imagine how much the rates have gone up today, 15 years later.

But because things are constantly evolving, paints is here to provide you with a range of colors that help create a healthier atmosphere in your home! Choose one of the thousands of unique painting shades for the walls of the children’s room and decorate the space with colored decorations to give it character.

Blue is one of the colors that calms children whether they are boys or girls. Colors such as light green and light blue – which are ideal for a children’s room for both boy and girl – are great choices that will make your children spend their time in their room.
