What materials for repair it is possible to call environmentally friendly repair of
environmentally friendly? The answer arises by itself: natural. Certainly, a tree - the most highly eco-friendly product for construction, however, our houses are under construction not of a tree, and of cement and concrete. Besides, beginning repair in the apartment, we think a little of environmental friendliness of those materials which will be used.
Sometimes after apartment renovation turn into the real dushegubk full of lead, phenol, toluene, acetone and still god knows what chemistry. Though environmentally friendly repair - concept very conditional, however, can try to be chosen such materials for arrangement of the housing which will minimize our daily poisoning.
Experts in the field of construction and repair claim that only 25% of construction and finishing materials are ecologically safe. The others can do serious harm to human health. Therefore special “contribution“ to pollution of our houses is made first of all by finishing materials and furniture.
Radiation is one of the most dangerous types of radiations. It cannot be eliminated, it is only possible to prevent. Therefore, choosing finishing materials for repair of your house, you remember that except concrete and a brick, can radiate radiation also also natural stones. However the stone has the natural radioactive background therefore when purchasing take an interest in existence of the testimony of radiation quality of goods. In total there are three classes of a radiation background of breed, from them in premises it is allowed to use only granites of the third class. The class is specified in the passport of the field. It is possible to avoid radiation if to use an artificial stone in finishing - it does not “indicate radioactivity“ at all, however, consists of concrete, expanded clay and artificial paints. The last can be carriers of harmful substances too.
Electromagnetic radiation makes not less harmful effects on a human body. Its most harmless consequences - headaches and high fatigue, worst of all - dysfunctions of urinogenital system and cancer. A source of the electromagnetic field, as a rule, are the power cables connected with violation of safety measures and also illiterately laid electrical wiring, distributive guards, transformers and even electric heaters. Especially it is worth paying attention to so-called “heat-insulated floors“. Some of their types give tenfold increase in electromagnetic radiation, and even the most harmless versions - exceed norm by 3 - 5 times.“ The heat-insulated floor“ is not recommended to put in nurseries and bedrooms as it is senseless to shield its radiation.
... and pollution
the Most dangerous pollution are chemical. Concrete, plaster, a carpet, heaters, glues, various paints and varnishes can become their source. Phenol, formaldehyde, lead, toluene, a xylol, ammonia, and also microscopic cement and silicate dust - all this adversely influences human health. Therefore repair time resembles environmental disaster in separately taken room - new materials begin to emit actively harmful substances which interact with each other, generating new even more harmful, connections. Result - the lowered immunity at inhabitants of the apartment, a disease of a liver, kidneys, TsNS and respiratory organs. It is possible to choose, of course, materials (paints, glues, varnishes and so forth) with markings “ecologically safely“, however, everything in this world is relative and this inscription means only that the content of harmful impurity in finishing materials does not exceed maximum permissible norms. Therefore it is not recommended to live in the apartment where there is a repair and after repair within 3 - 6 months it is necessary to air all rooms intensively.Saprofita`s
, fungi and a mold is microorganisms which pollute premises and become the reason of manifestation of allergic reactions and different respiratory diseases. Most often microorganisms appear where the room microclimate is broken, excessive moisture accumulates, and, thus, favorable conditions for development of microflora appear. Poisoning with mold mushrooms can lead to very serious consequences. Therefore during repair strictly you watch that technologies of construction of designs, their isolation and warming were not broken. Carefully think over system of ventilation, put humidifiers if air in the house very dry.Ceilings
Any expert will tell
to you that for ceilings the ideal decision is a vodoimulsionny paint. It was created especially for these purposes. False ceilings save dust that is harmful to lungs, and tension - can emit phenol. There is a question what to choose, beauty or health? It is quite logical that in bedrooms and nurseries it is the best of all to manage harmless paint and if there is an intolerable wish for beauty, then it is the best of all to make other types of ceilings in those rooms which are least of all used - drawing rooms, the general rooms, corridors. It is not recommended to do stretch and false ceilings in bathrooms and in kitchen as surplus of heat and moisture can not only spoil them, but also to lead to excess release of harmful substances.
Seeking to decorate the nursery, many parents paste the shining stickers imitating the star sky on a ceiling. Such stickers may contain unhealthy children phosphorus.
