Soft furniture is more important

Many consumers choose software and household items, only pay attention to whether the style and color match the decoration style of the home, and ignore the environmental performance. The reporter's investigation found that soft household products require a large amount of adhesives and textiles, so the pollutants are more likely to exceed the standard, thus affecting human health.

Environmental protection is easily overlooked
When buying household products, people tend to pay more attention to the environmental problems of panel furniture, while ignoring the same problems of soft household items. In fact, soft household items are more likely to cause pollution to the living environment due to the large amount of adhesive used. On July 7, 2015, the Guangdong Provincial Administration for Industry and Commerce announced the list of defective products discovered and identified in the second batch in 2015. There were 32 mattress products listed on the list due to formaldehyde emission.
Recently, the reporter visited some soft household goods businesses in large home stores, and found that some sales people have exaggerated the publicity of such products.
“Some brands called “zero formaldehyde” are impossible, because the textile used to make the mattress itself contains formaldehyde, but its release limit is within the national standard, or far below the national standard, but said 'Zero Formaldehyde' is definitely exaggerated. In addition, there are some products that use adhesives to adhere to the filler, which is bound to be formaldehyde, which is inevitable.” According to the salesperson, the merchant will cover the new mattress surface. A protective film will also produce a taste. If the consumer opens the film and places the mattress in a ventilated place for a period of time, it has no odor, indicating that the quality of the mattress is no problem, and vice versa.
In addition to mattresses, the pollution problem of fabric sofas is also easily overlooked by consumers. The reporter's investigation found that many consumers pay attention to style, comfort, color and whether they are properly matched with the living room space, but they do not pay much attention to environmental protection. A consumer who buys a sofa in a home store told reporters: "The fabric sofa is equipped with a wooden frame with a sponge mat. There should be no environmental problems, mainly whether it is strong, comfortable, and clean." Whether it is worried about the excessive release of formaldehyde in the fabric sofa, the consumer said that there is also concern, but the way to judge is to smell with the nose to see if it has a pungent smell.
Textiles are the main source of pollution
According to experts, due to the strong anti-corrosion ability of formaldehyde, in order to achieve anti-wrinkle, anti-shrinkage, flame retardant effects, or to make printing and dyeing more durable, merchants generally add formaldehyde when producing textiles. In the field of home decoration, soft decorative materials include curtains, bedspreads, pillowcases, sofa fabrics, etc., which are made of textiles and are therefore the hardest hit by formaldehyde pollution.
In addition, mattresses, sofas and other products may also cause a number of pollution violations due to material. For example, the structure of the sofa is divided into fabric, foam, and frame. According to Sun Shudong, assistant director of the National Furniture and Indoor Environmental Quality Supervision and Inspection Center, fabrics are textiles, which may contain formaldehyde, decomposable aromatic amine dyes and other contaminants; foams need to use glue to bond, so more or less will contain formaldehyde. In addition, unqualified foam will contain volatiles such as formaldehyde, benzene and TVOC; the frame of fabric sofa is generally made of artificial board, so it may contain volatiles such as formaldehyde and benzene. It can be seen that the environmental performance of soft household items is not superior.
New standards are expected to be introduced during the year
It is understood that at present, there is no special standard in China to limit the harmful substances in soft household items. The current "Limited Hazardous Substances in Wood Furniture for Interior Decoration Materials" standard does not explain the harmful substances contained in soft household items.
Curtains, wall coverings, bed sheets, duvet covers, bedding and other products are all textiles. It is necessary to implement the National Textile Products Basic Safety Technical Specification (GB18401-2010); and this standard is to ensure that textile products are harmless to human health. The most basic requirement is for the standards proposed by textile companies, not for furniture companies. In this standard, textiles are divided into the following three categories: Class A is baby products; Class B is products that directly touch the skin, such as sheets, quilt covers, towels, etc.; Class C is products that are not directly in contact with the skin, such as curtains, Bed cover, wall covering, etc.
According to Sun Shudong, only spring soft mattresses have national standards, of which there is a limit on formaldehyde content. Although the industry claims that the production and testing of brown mattresses can refer to relevant standards, it does not indicate which standard, so it is easy to cause confusion during implementation. In addition, the above standards only require the odor of the sofa product, but the evaluation method is only based on the sense of smell, so its control of product pollutants has no practical significance.
In fact, as early as around 2011, the National Furniture Standardization Technical Committee proposed four new standards for soft household products, including “Limited Hazardous Substances in Soft Home Furnishing Mattresses” and “Limited Hazardous Substances in Soft Home Furnishing Sofas”. However, these standards have been in the past four years since their introduction, but they have not been introduced.
