Green-treated deck vs. bare feet

Posted by folkvictorian (My Page) on

We're installing a new green-treated deck and I read the fine print on the boards' label. It says to wash your skin if you come into contact with the wood. We have a 3-year-old son who loves to run around barefoot. Aarghhh! When we seal the deck next summer, will it then be more safe to walk on with bare feet? Would an oil-based or water-based sealer be better for this application?

Thanks!

don't use treated wood for the decking. You'll be pulling splinters out of his little feet.

There is no danger involved with mcq preasure treated yellow pine. Reread. Again. There is no danger walking on presure treated lumber. Reread Again.

There is no differance when you finish pt pine or how you finish it there is still no danger. J.
