Mattresses, sofas, beddings, pillows, curtains and various fabric accessories... In modern homes, in addition to large furniture, these soft household items are also necessary for home decoration. However, the author found that when purchasing these software home furnishings, many people only pay attention to whether the price, style, and color match the home decoration style, but ignore environmental protection. In fact, soft household products such as curtains, fabric sofas, mattresses, bed sheets, etc. all require a large amount of adhesives and textiles. Pollutants are more likely to exceed the standard and affect health. Not long ago, Ms. Zhao customized a set of fabric sofas with a total price of 6,800 yuan. The merchant promised to send two pillows and a small quilt for each set of sand. When the sofa arrived home, Ms. Zhao carefully inspected the sofa, including checking the production process and details and smelling the smell, and signing the receipt after confirming that there was no problem. However, Ms. Zhao ignored the pillow provided by the merchant. When she unpacked the pillow, a strong pungent smell came to her face. When she opened the outer cover of the pillow, she found that the inner core smelled heavier. Ms. Zhao had to take out the inner core of the pillow and put it on the balcony to dry. After a period of time, the smell disappeared. Like Ms. Zhao, when buying household products, they only pay attention to whether large furniture is environmentally friendly, and there are many people who ignore the problem of soft household products. In fact, soft household products require a large amount of adhesives, so they are more likely to cause pollution to the room environment. It is understood that due to the extremely strong anti-corrosion ability of formaldehyde, in order to achieve the effects of anti-wrinkle, anti-shrinkage, flame retardant and other effects on textiles, or to make printing and dyeing more durable, businesses generally add formaldehyde when producing textiles. In the field of household goods, not only curtains, wall coverings, bed sheets, duvet covers, bedding, etc., but also clothing, towels, socks, hats and other products are made of textiles, so it is the hardest hit area of u200bu200bformaldehyde pollution. In addition, products such as mattresses and sofas may also cause multiple pollution exceeding standards due to material reasons. For example, the structure of a sofa is divided into fabrics, foams, and frames. The fabrics are textiles, which may contain formaldehyde, decomposable aromatic amine dyes and other pollutants; foams need to be glued, so they will contain formaldehyde more or less. . In addition, unqualified foams contain formaldehyde and volatiles such as benzene and TVOC; the frame of fabric sofas is generally made of artificial boards, so it also contains volatiles such as formaldehyde and benzene. It can be seen that the environmental performance of soft household products is not superior. In some stores that sell software household products, most salespeople exaggerate the environmental performance of such products. A mattress salesperson bluntly said: Whether it is furniture or soft household products, it is impossible to promote the so-called 'zero formaldehyde'. No matter the sheet or textile, including the adhesive used, it contains formaldehyde, which consumers buy. At that time, just look at whether its formaldehyde emission limit is within the scope of the national standard, and there is no need to blindly pursue the so-called 'zero formaldehyde'. And the general brand products are more secure, even if there is a slight smell, just need to dry for a period of time in a ventilated place, the smell is basically dispersed, it does not mean that its environmental protection is not up to standard. 'It is understood that there are currently no special standards in my country that limit harmful substances in soft household products. When consumers buy soft furniture, it is best to go to brand stores to buy branded products. According to media reports, the National Standards Committee recently revealed that sofas and beds The hazardous substance limit standards for cushions and wooden furniture are determined to be released this year, but due to the standard reform involved, there is no specific date for release.
