What Are The Three Common Mistakes In Formaldehyde Pollution? Can An Air Purifier Remove Formaldehyde?
Jul 31, 2018

Summer is a season of decoration. After the renovation of new houses, wall coatings and furniture paints will emit a lot of harmful substances such as formaldehyde, benzene and TVOC, and will accelerate the evaporation under the action of high temperature in summer. Depending on the materials used in the home decoration, the release cycle of formaldehyde generally ranges from 3 to 15 years. Therefore, many people now have a misunderstanding of formaldehyde, which leads to organic pollution. Let's take a look at the common three major errors in formaldehyde:

1. My home has been renovated for a long time, so there will be no formaldehyde!

Formaldehyde has two very important characteristics. One is that the higher the temperature, the more volatile it is. The second is that the incubation period is as long as 2-15 years. It is not for a long time. There is no formaldehyde in the room. It is because of the latent period that it leads to many families. Excessive formaldehyde!

2. my home plate is 0 formaldehyde material, so there will be no formaldehyde!

0 formaldehyde, derived from E0 index, formaldehyde emission ≤ 0.5mg / L, E0 indicator is the amount of formaldehyde released, not formaldehyde content. The amount of formaldehyde released is small, and there may be a protective layer outside the wood board to prevent the release of formaldehyde inside. Even at the "E0" level, the formaldehyde content in the board may be high. When the wood board is deformed and cracked due to long-term use, it will inevitably aggravate the release of formaldehyde.

3. my family has no taste, so there will be no formaldehyde!

First of all, if you open the window during the day, you can't smell it when you go home. After the door is closed for a whole night, you can feel the obvious taste.

In addition, formaldehyde at a certain concentration, the human olfactory system is not touched. Only when formaldehyde exceeds 4 times the standard will it smell pungent. If you don't smell a pungent smell at home, you can only say that the formaldehyde in your home is not over 4 times, but you can't say that formaldehyde is not exceeded!

Air purifiers have always been sought after by a large number of consumers with excellent smog purification effects. However, many people do not know that air purifiers also have excellent performance in the purification of formaldehyde.

The newly renovated room is three months after the window is ventilated, and can be used in a new house with a professional air purifier for removing formaldehyde. For people with low immunity such as babies, children, pregnant women and the elderly, at least six months of ventilation is required.
