Arsenic Compound as a Chemical Wood Preservative-Restricted! Read On, You May be at Risk
Chromated Copper Arsenate is an arsenic compound used as a Chemical Wood Preservative. It has been used to protect wood from rotting due to insects and microbial agents. It has banned from being used in residential cases; read below.
Since the 1970’s, the majority of the wood used in residential settings was CCA-treated wood.
The Environmental Protection Agency has worked with pesticide manufacturers to voluntarily phase out CCA use for wood products around the home and in children's play areas.
Effective December 31, 2003, no wood treater or manufacturer may treat wood with CCA for residential uses, with certain exceptions.
