We all want the best for our loved ones. We work hard every day to provide them with the love and care they deserve, from the food they eat, the clothes they wear, to what shelters them through the changing weather. Boysen Healthy Home is here to ease one of your worries away.

Get Ready to Paint Your Home Nice and Healthy

Boysen Healthy Home is a premium, acrylic, water-based coating that is ideal to use on your interior walls. It dries to a durable satin finish, which makes it perfect to use on places where extra protection is needed such as in bedrooms, kitchens, living rooms, bathrooms, kid’s room, and damp places where harmful microorganisms thrive. Because of its antibacterial protection technology, painting your home with this special paint shields you, your family and your home from harmful bacteria like E. coli and Salmonella, as well as mildew and fungus.

Thanks to its lead and mercury-free formulation, using it on your walls benefits both your family and the environment. In addition to that, the painting would be less stress for you too because of its easy application and quick-drying feature. Another distinct feature is that it is low maintenance. Cleaning would be easier since it is formulated to hold up to light scrubbing, and the paint will not fade easily.

You can even have your kids play around while you paint or have them help you out (not that we’re suggesting it) since Healthy Home has low Volatile Organic Compound (VOC) and is odor-less, meaning it’s safe to use and will not cause any health-related upshot on humans. Watch this classic Boysen commercial for proof:

Note that a 4-Liter Boysen Healthy Home can cover up to 30-35 sq. m. per coat, depending on surface texture and porosity. Make sure to do the math before you head out to your local hardware store.

So, how does antibacterial technology work?

It works as soon as the applied paint coating is fully cured. Let’s get a little bit technical. The antibacterial additive provides microscopic needles that pierce the bacteria cell wall that comes in to contact with the surface, killing it immediately. The action is physical rather than chemical, thus mutation of the bacteria will not progress. It then works continuously to stop the growth of the microorganism on your walls. However, to constantly ward off bacteria and keep your home and your family safe, it is important to clean your house daily while simultaneously practicing good hygiene.

How to Use Boysen Healthy Home

To effectively use Boysen Healthy Home, you must prepare the surface ahead of the actual painting job. For new concrete, allow 14-28 days drying time to ensure proper curing. Wipe away oil, grease, and other contaminants afterward. For previously painted concrete, scrape off all loose paint then wipe it clean. Check the surface for common painting problems and fix it immediately to save the surface from future troubles. The same amount of work goes with wooden and drywall surfaces. But of course, each surface requires a different preparation. Follow this link to learn more.

Get your brush and let’s get painting. It’s okay if you weren’t able to prepare a face mask for this paint job. You won’t need it. Nah, you can get one if you want to. We’re just saying it is not only odor-less, but it also allows the painter to breathe free while painting. Follow the recommended painting schedule to ensure a fail-safe healthy home.
