The early symptoms of formaldehyde poisoning in children are similar to those of influenza. If your child has these symptoms, parents are advised to pay attention to:
1. Observe whether the child has the habit of rubbing his eyes frequently;
Love to sneeze, cough, fever of unknown cause;
3. The body can also cause some redness, spots, lumps, excluding prickly heat or mosquito bites;
4. When the child leaves the environment, the symptoms will change significantly and gradually improve.
Formaldehyde is a kind of toxic chemical substance. Its release rate will accelerate with the increase of temperature. After heating in winter, the indoor temperature will rise rapidly, which will accelerate the release of formaldehyde in furniture and floor. Different from the common indoor environmental pollutants, the formaldehyde emission cycle is very long, up to 3-15 years. Even if formaldehyde will be reduced to a safe range after decoration, it does not mean that formaldehyde will not rise again after decoration. In winter, ventilation is not smooth, formaldehyde can not be released, it is easy to exceed the standard.
Children in growing stage are more sensitive to indoor pollutants such as formaldehyde. If there is pollution at home, it is easy to bring hidden dangers to children's health. The better prevention method is to conduct professional formaldehyde detection regularly, so that even if it does not have the odor threat of formaldehyde, it can also be detected in time.
If formaldehyde detection exceeds the standard, ventilation is a convenient method to remove formaldehyde. Effective ventilation can reduce formaldehyde concentration in a short time. But formaldehyde release period is long and wind is small, close window to have no effect, repeat easily.
