Previous owner painted the cedar deck in our backyard. We're stripping
it (with deck stripping chemicals... sodium hydroxide), and also
sanding it in a few places. Looking around for information, I came
across the topic of CCA (arsenic) used on pressure treated wood, and
am somewhat concerned about the health risks associated with arsenic.
So here's my question: what sort of woods was (is) CCA used on? If the
deck is made of cedar, can we relax and not worry about CCA?
The deck was built in 1990.
