Does pw decks cause CCA contamination?


Deck Care Pro
Thought I would post this in regards to the statements I have read that pressure washing CCA decks causes contamination. This is the second time I have heard this and thought it should be addressed. I just read the second from a gentleman Tim Carter who has a website designed for the residential homeowner. It is called "Ask the Builder". In he states that he has just written an article for the Chicago Tribune about cleaning CCA treated decks. Now generally I would have discarded this because this individual pushes a oxygen bleach wood cleaning product called Stain Solver, but I also read an articel in my local paper pertaining to this same circumstance. Although, I am very concerned with not causing any environmental problems, I am very concerned that this will hurt my business.

If any of you have come upon any similar articles I would be interested in your thoughts.
