A new disease called sick house syndrome. It’s still not gone.
I think there are many people who wonder why.
Everyone is talking about a healthy house.
It’s probably because they don’t look at the essence, they just only do it as usual.
For example, the house is
Is it a well-ventilated floor plan?
Is the wind flowing under the floor, walls, or attic?
Is it just mechanical ventilation?
Is the sunlight blocked by the middle corridor?
Isn’t it full of private rooms?
Do your children often go home without your knowledge?
Is it a floor plan that does not require face-to-face contact after a marital quarrel?
Is it a house where you feel like you have not a family in your house even though your family is in the house?
Is the heated room hot and the corridors and toilets chilling?
Doesn’t it feel too dry when heated?
Do you have 4 or 5 air conditioner?
Isn’t the second floor hot?
Is the loft too hot?
Isn’t the room stuffy?
Doesn’t it smell like chemicals?
Do you feel something is wrong even though you don’t smell chemicals?
Are you taking measures against termites with pesticides?
Is the wood preservative treated with chemicals?
Even in a new house, it’s no wonder that a new sick house syndrome.
Natural materials need to be used like alive.
If natural materials are not used in places where they can be exposed to flowing air or where they can breathe, rotting fungi can easily grow and mold and mites can also be attracted.
When that happens, then what happened in the past will happen again.
The cause of atopy and allergies were the house, and as a countermeasure, pesticides and chemical substances such as fungicides were used in building materials against mold and mites, which caused the problem of multiple chemical sensitivity.
Nowadays, the technology to eliminate the odor of pesticides and chemical substances has been developed to prevent the odor from being felt, so the problem is becoming more serious as it is latent.
In any case, in order to prevent mold and mites from forming on natural materials, it is a general rule to use natural materials in a well-ventilated place.
It is rarely used in this way, and it is not uncommon for building materials made of natural materials to contain pesticides and chemical substances. The problem is getting more and more complicated.
