A Team Effort
Traveling – When the Arana team travels to its destinations it not only does so in fuel efficient vehicles but our team travels together and in as few vehicles as possible. In this way Arana strives to reduce pollution and the consumption of fossil fuels.
Tools Of The Trade – Arana utilizes a number of different tools in both its residential and commercial work. All of these tools are considered “green” and non toxic meaning they won’t have a negative impact on either the environment nor people.
Low VOC Paint – Being an environmentally conscience company, Arana Craftsman Painters uses only low VOC paints in its work. VOC or “volatile organic compound” levels vary from brand to brand and our team carefully selects and applies only those paints with the lowest levels. This also means that the “new paint” smell you’ve grown accustomed to smelling after a fresh coat is applied is dramatically reduced and in some cases, eliminated completely. The higher a paint’s VOC rating the greater number of harmful chemicals it contains, all of which are harmful to not only the environment but people as well.
Unused Paints – “It’s better to have it and not need it than to need it and not have it” is a sound philosophy and one that many painters operate under. As such there are left over paints at every job a painter works. In an effort to be friendly to the environment, Arana never throws paint in the “normal” garbage. Instead excess paint is either given to local charities where it can be put to good use or simply stored away for future use.
Déjà vu? – Arana Craftsman Painters also has a thorough recycling program in place, both at its office and at every job site. We separate our pure refuse from those things that can be broken down and reused so that new materials and resources don’t have to be used in creating something.
