Using Pressure Treated Wood Indoors


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.
