As pressure built from the Consumer Product Safety Commission, The Environmental Working Group, and the Healthy Building Network to remove toxic arsenic from the residential market, the EPA banned the use of arsenic treated lumber in the residential market in 2004. Arsenic is a known carcinogen and children are extremely susceptible to high concentrations from playing on wooded playgrounds. Decks, fences, benches and picnic tables are other sources were high concentrations of arsenic can come directly into contact with skin, which over time can result in chronic exposure and can lead to various forms of cancer.
Gaia Dynamics, LLC has launched an easy to use, non-toxic test kit that consumers can use to test their wood around their home for arsenic. The test kit comes with 3 separate tests and can provide results within 1 hour. Other methods of testing rely on the consumer to order kits, take a sample, and send it to a lab for analysis. Gaia Dynamics gives the consumer the ability to test their own wood with reliable results.
