What is dustless painting? Well, we here at Pro Crew Painting are glad you asked.

Whether you’re painting your house for the first time or are re-painting, nothing is more annoying than discovering those little specks of dust on your freshly-painted walls that you inadvertently missed when vacuuming.

But what if we told you it was possible to avoid that altogether?

In today’s article, Pro Crew Painting outlines what dustless painting is, how (and why!) to use it for a better painting experience, and how our professional painting team is here to help.

The Definition of Dustless Painting (and Why It’s Used)

Dustless painting, otherwise known as “dust-free painting”, is vital for coating materials like paint and varnish: it regulates the exposure of dirt to the wet paint and is defined as the first phase in the drying process of paint, varnish, and other common coating materials.

Originally, the idea of dust-free painting was a movement put into action in order to protect homeowners like you– as well as painters – from flying lead dust, which can be hazardous to one’s health. It has come a long way from its humble origins and has evolved into a vital part of a professional painting job. After all, if there’s no dust, there’s no concern for potential danger to workers or the general public.

Pro Crew Painting understands that your home is your safe place for you and your family. That’s why we use an industry-leading, dust-free painting process to keep the air in your home unpolluted, whether you’re painting your interior or exterior.

How Does Dustless Paint Work?

Now that we’ve got the definition of dust-free painting covered, let’s delve into how it works.

Dust-free paint can be used both indoors and outdoors. It has a coating that is specially designed to offer dust-resistance. However, keep in mind that visible results are not generated immediately, which means repeated uses of the product for a time period of a few weeks.

In addition to dust-resistance, this paint also has an ingredient whose purpose is to create an algaecide membrane on a wall. Once the membrane is formed, it decreases algae and fungus growth, and holds off discolouration and staining, thus making the removal of dirt, grease, and other contaminants easier.

The Benefits of Dust-Free Painting

Finally, let’s take a look at the benefits of dust-free painting.

There are three main benefits to utilizing this practice:

  • Dust-resistant paint helps your walls look cleaner for longer. This is especially true for exterior walls if your residence is in an area that is extremely dusty and has a high level of regular traffic.
  • Dust-free paint makes it so you spend less time cleaning and more time enjoying your freshly-painted walls! When you use dust-resistant paint, it’s a guarantee that the amount of dust on your walls is significantly reduced.
  • Both exterior and interior walls are better protected against weathering. The great thing about dust-free paint is that it can be used inside and out. The dust-free paint used outside protects the walls from fading and erosion from sunlight and other elements.

Because of these perks, we highly recommend dust-free paint for any type of initial painting or repainting efforts.
