Using Pressure Treated Wood Indoors

sunbeltfp.com

Many people believe that using pressure treated wood indoors is harmful. So, we decided to clear up some of the confusion.

The story goes that pressure treated wood once was treated with a harsh chemicals that could potentially release toxic fumes. But the government has since banned wood from being treated that way, but it is always HIGHLY recommended that you read and confirm how your wood has been treated before purchasing it for indoor use.

Treated wood out-performs hardwood or regular construction grade wood. It is often harder and denser than untreated wood, making it ideal for large scale furniture or interior uses such as door frames, archways or any sort of structural build. However, treated wood should never be used for any surface that touches or comes in direct contact food, such as kitchen counters or cutting boards.

    You did a great job of explaining the usage of pressure treated wood or lumber. It really helped when you emphasized that treated wood should never be used for any surface that touches or comes in direct contact food, such as kitchen counters or cutting boards. I will certainly be sharing this useful information with my friends, most especially Jason who is now having a home renovation.
