even more than than 10 years are still using the old mattress.

Mattress market in different ways, including some rough work, the environmental quality
standards. Solve the problem of pollution of the mattress, grabbed from the root of the
specification starting from the mattress industry.
The mattress industry to achieve sustainable development, and businesses to establish a
brand must be high quality products, good reputation and social responsibility, but also
with the help of media and industry associations, business quality inspection departments
the power to regulate the industry as a whole. I believe that inferior products dominate
the market by low-cost competition, only short-term profit, not long-term survival.
The use of qualified raw materials and process
Xu Lifeng, Thailand Pu Pi Di Managing Director
Involved in the pollution problem to solve the mattress to the production of mattress
materials used and production process to eliminate the pollution must use the qualified raw
materials and improve the production process, can not go wrong in every aspect of a
production, so in order to create qualified pollution-free mattress. I think that the
corporate quality control, trade associations, industry and commerce, quality inspection
departments, like fingers, tightly hold together in order to play a strength, in order to
really control the pollution problems of the mattress.

First look at the price of purchase to avoid buying the products of many kinds, and low
prices. If the price is too low, consumers have a right to suspect that the raw materials
if there are problems; smell it, some poor-quality mattress will add some substandard
filler, will emit a pungent taste; as much as possible to buy the professional bedding
brand or service a good product, the waiter at the time of purchase, ask the stores, look
at product packaging instructions, instructions on spring density of state regulations are
not clear, we must not buy.
Flip the mattress regularly
In order to avoid the breeding ground for bacteria and dust mites, remove the plastic bags
used, and ventilation to keep dry to prevent moisture caused by mildew; use regularly flip,
use a cleaning pad and sheets, there are absorbent function, can also be washed frequently,
to ensure sleep hygiene; annually using a vacuum cleaner to clean up the mattress several
times to keep the mattress clean. Washing with soap and water stains on the mattress, do
not use detergent.
The new mattress attention to ventilation cleaning
High levels of formaldehyde or mildew will cause the mattress issued to stimulate the
unpleasant odor. If you find to buy mattresses, indoor environmental pollution is serious,
or family members have health problems, the best indoor environment testing in a timely
manner. Meanwhile, buy a new mattress should also pay attention to ventilation and
purification, to prevent health hazards. Mattress for too long already moldy, musty, damp,
dust, dirt, etc., should be properly cleaned or dry. If you use too long spring deformation
