Since ancient times, China has a history of thick bamboo products, ranging from bamboo sticks to furniture, which reflects China’s love of bamboo. However, bamboo products are actually very fragile. If improper maintenance is easy, mold, bacteria and even insects will occur. Today, Xiaobian will introduce the bamboo product maintenance methods in detail.
For large pieces of bamboo furniture such as cabinets, bookshelves, and reclining chairs, the dirt in the gaps should be removed and rinsed with water. Bamboo utensils that are not in use should be washed, dried, and then stored in a dry, ventilated place. Prepare for the event, if you have the condition, you can apply varnish and cooked tung oil when you just buy the bamboo products. This is not only a good thing, but also a good thing. Newly purchased small and medium-sized bamboos such as baskets and mats should be re-steamed by high-temperature sealed steam.
The physical methods mainly include high temperature method, water immersion method, smoke method, gas atmosphere method, far infrared ray method, microwave method and ray method. The disadvantage is that the treated bamboo or bamboo products may be re-infected with mites and molds if not properly stored. In addition, bamboo that is cut down in spring is susceptible to insects, and bamboo that is cut down in winter is difficult to be wormed. Therefore, bamboo felling should be arranged in winter as much as possible. Moreover, the bamboo after felling should be transported to the production site for use as soon as possible, or used to prevent insects and mildews.
The chemical methods mainly include a coating method, a dipping method, a cooking method, a fumigation method, and a pressure injection method. The advantages of these methods are anti-mite and anti-corrosion, and the time is long. The disadvantage is that some of the agents are toxic and easily contaminate the product and the environment. With the increasing awareness of environmental protection, the environmental protection requirements and standards for bamboo insecticides, preservatives, and anti-mold agents are also increasing. For example, preservatives such as CCA and PCP have been banned in Europe, and CCB and CCF are mainly used. , and preservatives such as ACQ.
