New Post: How Can Kids Playgrounds and Sandboxes Be Safer? PLS

If you suspect your wood structure is made from arsenic-treated wood, order an arsenic test kit from Amazon. If your structure is made with arsenic-treated wood and you can’t replace it, seal it with semitransparent water-based deck stain at least once a year. Replace high use areas of the structure, like hand rails or steps if you can’t replace the whole structure. Make sure kids wash their hands well after touching arsenic-treated wood and don’t ever allow kids to eat on the structure. Check your outdoor furniture and deck to be sure they aren’t made from chemically –treated wood. Don’t burn or power wash the wood; washing can release the arsenic and other chemicals to create a toxic mixture. Don’t sit under or store things under arsenic-treated wood structures; keep your kids and pets away from the soil, which is contaminated from water runoff.
