Children hematopoietic system and delicate, bone metabolism, active, due to the time they spend in the home is also far more than adults and more easily by these pollutants violation; and formaldehyde than air slightly heavier, in the air deposition height of 1.2 to 1.5 meters, is just a child's body, so formaldehyde on children harm is serious!

Harm of excessive formaldehyde
China's "indoor air formaldehyde health standards" (GB/T16127-1995), formaldehyde health standards for 0.08mg/m3. When the formaldehyde content in the air exceeds the standard, will produce the following symptoms:
Eyes: irritation of the mucous membranes cause tearing formaldehyde is an irritant, when the concentration reaches a certain degree, first will stimulate the mucous membranes of the eyes, dry, tears, eyes of the symptoms.
Skin: high concentration of formaldehyde will cause some people allergic to skin itching, mild skin rash symptoms. Suffering from dermatitis, eczema, people in the environment for a long time formaldehyde concentration is likely to aggravate the condition.
Respiratory: sore throat, nasal dryness, cough, chest tightness. According to the specialist, the high concentration of formaldehyde stimulation easily lead to the upper and lower respiratory tract disease.

In addition, indoor air temperature, humidity, ventilation decreased, it is possible to increase the level of indoor formaldehyde concentration, and ultimately increase the risk of formaldehyde on the human body.
