Formaldehyde is a common indoor harmful gas and a harmful substance of great concern. This gas usually comes from formaldehyde contained in building materials, decoration, furniture and other decoration materials. Long-term exposure to this environment will cause great harm to human health. In Hong Kong, due to high real estate prices, many people live in small apartments, which are often well-decorated and contain higher levels of formaldehyde. Therefore, it is very important to understand how to effectively remove formaldehyde.
In Hong Kong, the main methods for removing formaldehyde are as follows:

1. Ventilation

Ventilation is the most basic method to remove indoor formaldehyde. By opening windows and allowing air circulation, formaldehyde in the indoor air can be emitted and the effect of formaldehyde removal can be achieved. Especially in the first few days after renovation, open more windows to circulate indoor air and evaporate formaldehyde outdoors.

2. Use an air purifier

Air purifiers are one of the effective tools for removing indoor formaldehyde. This device filters indoor air pollutants, including formaldehyde. When using an air purifier, pay attention to the frequency of cleaning and replacing the filter to ensure its effectiveness.

3. Plant absorption

Many plants such as spider plants, ivy, aloe vera, etc. can absorb indoor formaldehyde, which is a natural way to remove formaldehyde. However, when using the plant absorption method, it should be noted that plants have a limited amount of formaldehyde absorption and require certain care such as lighting and watering.
