Formaldehyde, a colorless gas, has a special irritating odor and is easily soluble in water. It has irritating effects on people’s eyes and nose. It also poses a cancer risk to the human body in excess of a certain concentration. This is a problem that cannot be solved for every decoration family. Formaldehyde also has a variety of hazards. Exposure to different concentrations, different times, and hazards are also important:
Lesser hazards: Allergies, such as sneezing, runny nose, tears, throat discomfort or pain, asthma, redness of the skin, etc.
Heavier hazards: Carcinogenic, nasopharyngeal, colon, and brain tumors. It can also cause fetal malformation or even stop development.
First of all, we should know where the decoration formaldehyde pollution comes from. There are several materials would release formaldehyde, such as Glass cement, wooden floor, Wood furniture or cabinets, Floor adhesive, Latex paints and other coatings, Wallpaper and Textile.
As we know there are so many materials would release the formaldehyde, so how can we avoid the damage of formaldehyde pollution?
Apart from maintaining good living habits and adopting some daily air clean assistive measures (including air purifiers), the most important thing is to do preventive work during the renovation and renovation, and control the toxic chemical pollutants within the scope of conformity to ensure the indoor air quality passes.
1, Make environmental protection pre-evaluation before decoration
Decoration pollution is caused by non-environmental materials, but even with environmentally friendly products, decoration may not be able to sit back and relax. Even if individual inspections of building materials are in line with national environmental standards, the use of too much, the quantity has become a qualitative change; it may also exceed indoor air pollutants. If designing, according to the area of the housing to consider the best use of the material, projected environmental protection index, you can effectively prevent the use of materials due to unreasonable decoration pollution caused.
2, choose the formal environmental protection material
When purchasing furniture, paints, plates, and glues, pay attention to their environmental protection and try to select environmentally-friendly materials. If you need to use a large number of plates in interior decoration, you should try to choose the E1 and E0 environmental protection plates produced by the regular manufacturers; the best coating depends on whether there is an authoritative test report issued by the country, and the formaldehyde purification rate and purification durability are two indicators have to consider.
3, Using different materials
When selecting a decoration design, a single material cannot be used excessively. It is best to use materials such as wood, stone, glass, and iron. Because different materials contain different contaminants, if a single material is used too much, even if the product is qualified, the total amount adds up. The total amount of such contaminants contained in the material is relatively easy to exceed the standard.
Therefore, try not to place large-size or large-area furniture in a small space, and not to choose the same furniture as the floor material, especially for families that have paved composite floors and other artificial floors.
4, Live in when air reaches standard and keep ventilation
General new house decoration pollutant content will be relatively high when just finished, ventilation for some time, it is best to go through the air testing of professional agencies, do photocatalyst in addition to formaldehyde treatment, indoor air quality standards can only stay. For a simple renovation or renovation, we must pay attention to more windows and air convection. Clothes stored in newly-renovated furniture should always be taken out for drying, so as to prevent households from having toxic substances that are volatilized and adsorbed on clothes, causing damage to the body.
5, Using an air purifier
Air purifier can absorb, purify or convert various air pollutants (generally including PM2.5, dust, pollen, odor, decoration pollution such as formaldehyde, bacteria, allergens, etc.), and effectively improve air cleanliness.
