You want to feel safe and secure in your own house or apartment. However, it is possible only if you do not keep the following products on your shelves:
1. Coal-Tar Driveway Sealant
Sealants that contain coal tar can be replaced with other materials. Seal your blacktop driveway with a sealant that does not have PAHs or, in other words, polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons. The compound is toxic and increases the risk of developing cancer. It also has mutagenic properties. Each time it rains or snows outside, the water washes out the toxins and takes them to your water supply and yard.
Solution: Find a better alternative. Consider gravel. You can use porous materials that allow water to penetrate into the soil. To seal blacktop, we recommend you should try asphalt sealant. Whichever alternative you pick, stay away from sealants that have coal tar.
