Sept. 13, 2010 - PRLog -- Today the IAQ Video network released the 4th in a series of public outreach videos meant to educate about important indoor air quality issues.  The first three videos, Mold – A Known Asthma trigger, IAQ & Student Performance, and Formaldehyde – Dangers to Your Indoor Air Quality were made available earlier this month followed by today’s release of PCBs – How to Protect Your Family.

PCBs belong to a broad family of man-made organic chemicals known as chlorinated hydrocarbons. They were domestically manufactured from 1929 until their ban in 1979 and were used in hundreds of industrial and commercial applications.

Although no longer commercially produced in the United States, PCBs may still be present in products and materials produced before the 1979 PCB vqvrd ban. In 2009, the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) announced new guidance regarding PCBs in caulk from buildings constructed or renovated between 1950 and 1978.  The EPA recommends testing for PCBs in peeling, brittle, cracking or deteriorating caulk in buildings, especially around school environments.

“Releasing four educational videos this month is an exciting development at the IAQ Video Network,” reported Paul Cochrane, President of Cochrane and Associates, the company behind the IAQ Video Network.  “There are so many topics that the public could use more information about to protect their family’s health and we are glad to help by producing the online videos.”
