But Illinois’ new regulations should make those guidelines less important. Low VOC paints are now mandated, with a few exceptions, and all of the large paint companies (Sherwin-Williams, Benjamin Moore and Pittsburgh Paints) have opted to also offer paints totally free of VOCs…

“California set the standard and nine states in the Northeast went for the new regulations three years ago. Now Illinois, Indiana and Michigan have signed on and others are planning on doing it, too,” Hester said.

The new regulations mandate that VOC emissions in paint be kept under the 150 mark, but paints totally free of VOCs are taking it even a step further.
