PHOENIX - March 29, 2015 - PRLog -- Today, the IAQ Video Network and Cochrane & Associates announced the release of their latest educational video.  Their newest production discusses tetrachloroethylene, more commonly known as PERC, and potential exposure concerns.

PERC is a manufactured chemical that has been used for dry cleaning purposes, as a chemical intermediate, metal degreaser and as a component of some consumer products.  Exposure to PERC can also occur in some indoor environments, due to a process known as vapor intrusion, when it enters a home or building and pollutes the indoor air of a structure that has been built over contaminated groundwater or soils.

“The Department of Health and Human Services has determined that tetrachloroethylene may reasonably be anticipated to be a carcinogen and the International Agency for Research on Cancer has classified it as a Group 2A carcinogen,” said Paul Cochrane, President of Cochrane and Associates, the company behind the IAQ Video Network.  “Once PERC enters the body, it can remain for some time stored in fat tissue.  We hope the new video helps to shed some light on PERC and potential exposure risks for workers and the general public.”

This educational video was sponsored by a number of organizations and leading industry professionals that work to protect the public’s health. Sponsors include: EMSL Analytical, LA Testing, Clark Seif Clark, Zimmetry Environmental, Indoor Environmental Consultants, Hudson Douglas Public Adjusters, Healthy Indoors Magazine, Maine Indoor Air Quality Council and the 2015 Northeast IAQ & Energy Conference to name just a few.
