Since ancient times, China has a history of strong bamboo products, ranging from bamboo sticks to furniture, which reflects the love of bamboo in China. 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. In particular, 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 anti-mite, but also durable and beautiful, which is a good thing. Newly purchased small and medium-sized bamboos such as baskets, mats, etc., are preferably re-steamed by high-temperature sealed steam.
Steaming for 2-3 hours, you can completely kill the insects and microorganisms hidden in the bamboo. You can also soak the bamboo for 1-2 days with boiling water and a certain amount of salt to prevent the occurrence of insects. If you find insects, you can use the following methods to remove the insects: First, use the appropriate amount of sharp pepper or pepper, mash into the end, stuff into the pupil, and use boiled water to inject, have the effect of killing insects, can prevent the spread of insects; It is made with kerosene and a trace of dichlorvos. It is dripped into the pupil and can kill aphids. However, this method is not suitable for use in baskets, cabinets, etc. to store food in order to prevent accidents.
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 advantages of these methods are pollution-free and five-residue poison. 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 that the anti-mite and anti-corrosion effects are good and the time is long. The disadvantage is that some of the agents are toxic and easily pollute the products 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.
Although the bamboo product maintenance method mentioned above cannot guarantee that the beloved bamboo products will always be in good condition, it can also make bamboo products more than three years and five years.
