If outdoor caulk was used in error inside my home on windows - is any VOC risk gone once smell is gone? Was glue smell, NOT vinegar. Thx.

Asked by Worried Homeowner!

just wondering how VOC issues work. Am I good if I can't smell it anymore, or is it a continuing health risk? Can I seal it with something?

Hey there, unfortunately yes there is continued risk to exposure to the chemicals that are in the caulk. There is no remediation that we know of, ie sealers. If you aren't willing to pull it out I would recommend ventilating the room as often as you can, Liberty Phoenix Lord www.indigogreenstore.com
