CreoShield™ – For No-Fuss Creosote Odor Removal & Dramatically Reduced Creosote Emissions
For years, creosote odor removal has been a challenge for home and business owners who find themselves dealing with the acrid, unpleasant smell and carcinogenic off-gassing of creosote-treated wood. CreoShield™, a coating available exclusively from EnviroShield, can offer a lasting solution. Our product can be applied to a surface that has been treated with creosote to encapsulate the chemical concoction, thereby eliminating its offensive odor and reducing the toxic fumes to safe levels.
To understand the benefits of CreoShield™, it may help to know what creosote is and why it can be a problem. It’s a mixture of oil and tar that has been widely used to protect wood from decay related to moisture and insects in utility poles, dock pilings, railroad ties, and more. For example, people who have waterfront homes built on creosote-treated pilings to avoid the threat of flooding may notice an objectionable tar-like smell, and thus they look for a remedy focused on removal of the creosote odor.
However, there are other reasons to be concerned. The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency has identified creosote as a cancer-causing substance, and the Agency for Toxic Substances and Disease Registry lists several adverse health effects that have been linked to human exposure to creosote emissions, such as respiratory ailments and rashes.
In the past, the only option for creosote odor removal was time-consuming, labor-intensive scraping away of the creosote coating, followed by sanding the wood surface and applying shellac. Even then, the treatment would not eliminate the smell. Today, a much easier and more effective solution is available: CreoShield™.
