How does TCE affect my health?

Should you be concerned if your exposures are slightly above health guidelines?

Guidelines for TCE exposure are set at very low levels in order to protect your health and to make clean-up decisions. The guidelines are also set with the idea that you may be exposed all day, every day, for possibly a lifetime. Most people aren’t exposed to TCE for that long. The possibility of having a health effect from an exposure that is slightly above the guideline is very low.
