ARSENIC POISON WARNING
Recent ongoing studies conducted by the EPA indicate that there are more reasons than you might think to have your deck and fence restored by a professional. If your deck or fence was built before January 1, 2004 and in some cases after, then chances are your deck was treated with CCA (Chromate Copper Arsenate). This product was used to protect wood from dry rot, fungi, molds, termites, and other pests that can threaten the integrity of wood products. This chemical is dangerous if ingested or inhaled. Studies suggest that applying certain penetrating coatings (e. g., semi-transparent stains, or tinted seal (toners) on a regular bases (one re-application per year or every other year depending upon wear and weathering, may reduce the migration of wood preservatives from CCA-treated wood. In selecting a coating, consumers should be aware that, in some cases, "film-coating" or non-penetrating stains, such us Latex semi-transparent, Latex opaque and oil based opaque, and all solid stains on out doors surfaces such as decks, and fences are not recommended, as subsequent peeling and flaking may ultimately have an impact on durability as well as exposure to the preservatives in the wood. Homeowners should leave the cleaning process up to a professional with the proper safety equipment.
