Do you know if you have potentially toxic PCBs in your caulk?
The EPA recently reported PCBs have been found in high levels in building caulk.
PCBs are man-made toxic chemicals which can affect the immune system, reproductive system, nervous system, and endocrine system. In humans, PCBs are potentially cancer-causing.
The EPA is particularly concerned when PCBs are present during renovation or remodeling activities because these activities increase the potential likelihood of exposure.
If you do not know if your caulk contains PCBs you should treat it as if it does contain PCBs until you have it tested to determine if PCBs are present.
Feel free to contact our office for additional information or to have your caulk tested.
