With people’s attention to home pollution, many people have their own tricks, trying to get rid of home pollution, so there are many ways to deal with home pollution. Next, let’s talk about the Four Misunderstandings of indoor decoration and pollution removal.
Mistake 1: non toxic environmental protection materials
The decoration materials that fail to pass the environmental protection examination will definitely cause indoor pollution, but whether the materials meet the standards will be completely safe? Wrong!
According to Chen, the national mandatory standard for formaldehyde emission from wood-based panels and their products is no more than 1.5 milligrams per litre of air. Even for environmental protection materials, harmful gases may be released during decoration. Some decoration materials will not cause air pollution when used alone, but when several materials are used at the same time, the gas released from them may also be toxic through synergistic action. With the gradual accumulation of harmful substances, the harmful substances in the decorated house may finally exceed the standard.
Mistake 2: poisonous plants “drug taking”
It is said that it is good to put plants in the new house. Some people have moved several basins of fragrant plants they like to go home to “remove the smell”. Director Chen pointed out that some fragrant plants, such as tulips and daffodils, can not only “take drugs”, but also “release drugs”, and even have cancer risk. In addition, there is no need for too many plants with the function of “drug taking”.
Mistake 3: blind reliance on air fresheners
Many people think that air freshener can eliminate formaldehyde and other harmful gases. In fact, air freshener or air freshener can only use its fragrance gas to cover up the harmful gases with peculiar smell, rather than adsorption or decomposition.
Error 4: judge whether there is pollution by smell
It is unscientific to judge whether there is pollution in home decoration by smell. Among the main toxic and harmful gases that cause indoor pollution, some have smell, such as benzene containing less aromatic fragrance, formaldehyde and ammonia are pungent. But some poisonous gases, even if they can’t be heard, don’t mean they don’t exist. Generally, people who exceed the standard by more than 4 times will feel them directly. Therefore, it is not accurate to judge whether there is pollution by smell. The only scientific method is to use scientific instruments for detection.
What should I do if I am poisoned?
Decoration poisoning is mainly divided into three situations.
The first is the occurrence of mild symptoms such as itchy nose, tears, skin allergies and so on. As long as the patients get rid of the polluted environment and do well in ventilation, they will soon be able to self heal.
The second is that after entering the newly decorated room, there will be no symptoms within a certain period of time. This kind of situation is likely to be chronic poisoning. Once it happens, it will be much worse than the first situation. Therefore, such people can go to the hospital for respiratory examination, chest X-ray examination, blood routine examination and pre cancer examination six months to one year later.
The third is high-risk poisoning. Children with low immunity are the high-risk group of decoration poisoning, and they are easy to suffer from blood diseases. Data from children’s hospitals show that many children with leukemia are related to their exposure to the new decoration environment. Adults should be careful to prevent radon from causing cancer. Such patients should be examined as soon as possible according to symptoms.
In a word, using environmental protection materials, trying various life tricks and so on, to a certain extent, alleviate the decoration pollution, but many people often fall into some misunderstandings, I hope you don’t fall into the misunderstandings again!
