I've been pushing low-VOC paint for a while now, but I know that painting in general takes a lot of time and energy. Who needs the hassle, right? If you've been too busy or uninspired to try low-VOC paints in your home, then I'm here to help — with a lot of help from CertaPro.
To wind up this month's theme of Eco Chic, CertaPro is giving away its services to provide paint for one room in your home (an approximate $1000 value). All of the materials and labor will be included in this prize. All you have to do is pick out the room color! CertaPro will do everything from provide the paint to move the furniture to follow up after the job is complete.
If you're interested in winning an eco chic painting makeover for one room of your home, just take our quiz! To enter, you must log in and take the quiz below. Your eligibility is not based on getting the answers correct, just by completing the quiz once you are logged in. You do, however, need to be a TeamSugar member and log in before you take the quiz.

CertaPro uses low VOC paint which prevents smog, and air pollutants in the ozone, and Zero VOC paints are now available for residential projects. CertaPro will only use solvent primers when necessary. When using solvents, which can cause health problems, they use low odor products. CertaPro does careful calculations to buy exact amount of paint needed. This reduces excess paint. The leftover paint is labeled for future touch-ups, used in future projects, or donated to charity. In addition, CertaPro uses quality paints that eliminate the need for multiple coats and repainting.
