Beware of floor accessories as "environmental killers"
When choosing flooring, people tend to focus on the floor quality issues such as wear resistance, formaldehyde emission, pattern and style, but often pay little attention to the environmental protection issues of skirting boards, floor glue, floor mats and other accessories. However, experts from the Building Materials Testing Center said: "The choice of floor accessories and auxiliary materials is not good, and there may be hidden murderous intentions.
Environmental killer one: floor glue
It is generally believed that only the wooden floor itself will release formaldehyde, but in the actual installation process, a lot of floor glue will be used. Floor glue is also an important item, because the formaldehyde content of many inferior glues is seriously exceeding the standard.
Environmental killer two: skirting board
In addition, the skirting board is also one of the hidden environmental protection "killers". Because most wooden skirting boards also use formaldehyde-based adhesives for gluing, veneer or painting during the production process. Moreover, the surface of the skirting board cannot be as dense as the floor surface. During normal use, the free formaldehyde in the base material is easily released unscrupulously, causing pollution to the indoor air environment.
Environmental killer three: floor mats
During the installation of the floor, a floor mat will be laid between the ground and the floor. In this small, forgotten space, it is easy to breed all kinds of bacteria, which often becomes a dead corner of family environmental protection. Therefore, choosing floor mats with anti-corrosion function is an important part of ensuring the comprehensive environmental protection of the floor.
Floor glue, skirting boards, floor mats and other floor ingredients and accessories have become a common tactic of some floor vendors, and they are becoming a hidden danger to the family's environmental protection. Consumers should not only pay attention to the quality of wooden floors while ignoring the quality and environmental protection of these auxiliary materials. They should also choose products that meet environmental protection standards for these floor ‘accessories’. "
