After the renovation, even if the decoration company's air quality acceptance standards are met, but because it was rushed in just after the renovation, there was no time to ventilate (most of the office buildings are closed, and the amount of fresh air replacement is simply not enough). The employees work in this environment. In fact, it is very detrimental to health. Occasionally, it has eye soreness, nasal congestion, itchy skin, and allergies. So how do you know how to remove formaldehyde in the office?
One: The office chooses more finished furniture and less on-site furniture.
Although the on-site furniture is designed and customized according to the on-site environment, neat and beautiful, making full use of space, it is generally made of sawdust boards with high formaldehyde content. And once the order is completed, it is immediately put into use.
Two: When purchasing office appliances, you can first smell it with your nose to see if the smell is too pungent. It is best to choose products that can meet European standards.
In addition, you should also check whether all the particleboard for office appliances are sealed. If conditions permit, the newly purchased office appliances can be left unused for a period of time before being used.
3: Although it is a closed office environment, try to keep the door open to facilitate the emission of formaldehyde.
Set up the building's ventilation system and replace the fresh air with long-term ventilation.
Four: Put some flowers and plants indoors, such as Chlorophytum, Aloe, Agave, Tigertail and other flowers and plants will slightly reduce the concentration of harmful gases. Although the effect is limited, it can not only be beautiful, but also reduce the formaldehyde concentration in the office. What is the best of both worlds? Not happy!
Five: Ask a professional environmental testing company to perform indoor environmental testing to know whether the formaldehyde and volatile organic compounds in the indoor air have exceeded or just reached the standard, so that you can know whether you need a professional company to control indoor pollution.
What are the main sources of formaldehyde in the office?
First, office furniture
80% of the source of formaldehyde in the office is office furniture, because desks, chairs, bookcases, filing cabinets, etc. are mostly artificial boards, such as particle board, MDF, plywood, and plywood, etc., and these boards themselves contain formaldehyde and toluene , Xylene and other volatile organic compounds, etc., if the edge seal is poor, a large amount of formaldehyde will be volatilized. Therefore, when selecting office furniture, we must pay attention to the material of the board and the quality of the edge banding.
In some office buildings, the ground is a light marble floor. Although it looks clean and has a sense of grandeur, the marble floor will emit radioactive materials-plutonium, which will cause great harm to the human body and may increase Chances of getting lung cancer.
Carpet rubber contains a large amount of TVOC, and the carpet will volatilize formaldehyde, benzene, TVOC. Poor ventilation in some office areas will cause a large number of pollutants to accumulate, resulting in increased formaldehyde content and heavier odors. Therefore, it is recommended to use as little adhesive as possible when laying carpets. At the same time, regular deep cleaning of the carpet is carried out to ensure that it meets hygiene requirements and maintains good ventilation in the office area.
How to remove formaldehyde in the office?

Multi-ventilation to maintain air circulation in the office
Ventilation is a good way to reduce the formaldehyde content, allowing the indoor air to circulate, thereby reducing the content of harmful substances in the room. However, this method is generally not applicable in winter. Many offices close the windows and open the heating in winter to reduce ventilation In this way, the content of formaldehyde and other harmful substances in the room will increase, which will cause certain harm to the body.
