Sometimes you just need a change of scenery, sparking creativity and giving yourself that extra boost it needs. Transforming your apartment space with a new coat of paint might be the change you’re looking for. New paint can breathe new life into your indoor areas, and with Activa Coating, you will receive several health benefits as well. With the best paint for apartments, you can refresh your space while also reducing pollution and odors from the air through the process of photocatalysis.
While giving your apartment a healthier coat of paint, Activa Coating has the ability to help reduce pollution within the air of your apartment. According to the EPA, the average person spends around 90% of their time inside. This allows indoor pollutants to pose a bigger threat to our health than outdoor pollutants; the EPA reports that indoor air quality is around 3-5 times as deadly as outdoor air.
Before diving into the science behind our paint, you might be wondering “What type of pollution can be inside my apartment?” When many of us think of pollution, we may consider greenhouse gasses and fossil fuels. Although, there are a variety of different pollutants that thrive inside households. These pollutants can range from dust and dander to harmful gasses. If you want to learn more about the specific pollutants that you can find inside your household and what causes them, check out one of our previous blogs: What germs and pollutants are in air?
Activa Coating also has the ability to help remove odors from your space, making it perfect for kitchens, bedrooms, and bathrooms. Oftentimes, people use other means of masking odors, such as aerosols or candles. While these can temporarily prevent odors, it doesn’t fix the problem. The use of aerosols can only temporarily prevent the smell of odor and it comes with a variety of unwanted health issues ranging from headaches, dizziness, and respiratory issues. Activa Coating’s photocatalytic properties help prevent and remove odors by cleaning the air rather than masking it. This is why our paint is perfect for proactively fighting off odors throughout your household, making it safer and more enjoyable to spend time in your home.
What is Photocatalysis?
As we’ve mentioned previously, Activa Coating uses the science of photocatalysis to help clean surfaces, air pollution, and odors inside your home. Our paint contains titanium dioxide (TiO2) which gives Activa its photocatalytic properties. Photocatalysis is a chemical reaction that occurs when light (natural or artificial) hits the photocatalytic surface to help destroy pollution particles, odors, and more.

Lastly, Activa Coating is perfect for your next apartment makeover due to its affordable cost. With similar or even a lower cost than many brand-name paints, why wouldn’t you pick the paint with photocatalytic benefits? Oftentimes, people have to buy expensive products to achieve the same photocatalytic properties as painting with Activa, such as air purifiers. These products are typically very expensive and don’t work as well as Activa’s photocatalytic paint. Additionally, there are a variety of tricks and techniques that you can use to help reduce the overall cost of your paint job: 4 Tips to Save Money on Your Next Indoor Painting Project
Overall, using Activa Coating for your next apartment paint job comes with a variety of benefits that aren’t included with traditional paint.
