In the wet days back to the south, the floor first 'protested', and the wet ones all 'shed water'. The weather back to the south is like a nightmare for the southerners, so what should we do when the floor is dripping water? We must take protective measures, or the furniture will be destroyed!
How to go back to the South sky and earth?
Household floor is very sensitive to the humidity of the air, too humid air, and the floor is prone to mildew and deformation. 'go back to the South' to prepare the floor for 'moisture resistance'. When the climate is wet, try to close the doors and windows towards the South or Southeast (i.e. windward direction), and only open the doors and windows in the downwind direction to reduce the water vapor entering the room. When the weather is clear, all doors and windows can be opened to accelerate the evaporation of water.
1. Open windows and ventilate properly
In order to prevent moisture from entering, many families close their doors and windows all day long. They think that as long as they are isolated from the outdoor air, they can effectively prevent moisture. In fact, the moisture in the air will seep into the kitchen, bathroom and some small gaps. Closing the doors and windows tightly will not prevent moisture, but it is easy to breed bacteria and endanger the health of residents.
The most important period of dampproof is in the morning and in the evening. The air humidity in these two periods is the highest. In the afternoon, when the weather is relatively dry in the day, we should open a window for ventilation for a short time in this period, so that the tiles can be exposed to the sun and breathe, accelerate the evaporation of water, so as to achieve the dehumidification effect.
2. Wipe the floor with a soft rag
Cleaning the floor is almost a daily task. Generally, it needs to be wiped dry with a soft cloth. However, in case of stains that must be cleaned with water, it is recommended to use a cloth that is soaked and dried until no water drops.
After wiping the floor, do not open the window in the humid weather, otherwise the floor will become wetter. You can use a dry cloth to wipe it again, and then use the air conditioner to dehumidify it.
3. Salt water mopping
We just need to mop the floor with hot water and put something else in it. What's the secret weapon to make the floor dry fast? It's salt! First of all, let's heat the water until it turns into a temperature that won't burn your hands. The water temperature is about 40 ℃. Then, we add a spoon of salt to the water, stir it a little, and when the salt is fully dissolved, we can start to mop the ground. Soak the mop in hot brine, wring it out as much as possible, and mop the floor clean.
Why can hot saltwater have such magical effect? This is because the evaporation speed of liquid is related to temperature. The higher the temperature is, the faster the evaporation speed is, and the floor is naturally dried faster by using warm water. And the magnesium chloride and calcium chloride in the salt are very absorbent. They become small particles after drying on the floor, which can prolong the time of keeping the floor dry!
4. Quicklime dampproof
Quicklime is an excellent desiccant. It can absorb the water vapor in the air and turn it into calcium hydroxide to keep the indoor air dry. Buy quick lime (block) 20-30 Jin, put it in a covered wooden box or cardboard box, put it under the bed or at the corner of the room, help to absorb the moisture in the air.
If it's not too wet, don't open the lid until it's too wet. At the same time, the main doors and windows shall be closed and only a few air windows shall be opened for ventilation, so as to achieve better moisture absorption effect. Quick lime will dissolve after moisture absorption, so it should be replaced in time.
5. Light a candle
In the bedroom or living room where the floor is laid, light up the fragrance, save energy and effectively dry the air, and get out the musty smell in the room. Lighting candles can prevent condensation of water vapor, thus reducing indoor humidity.
If the house has a musty smell, you can choose a candle containing natural plant essential oil, which can not only dry the air, but also remove the musty smell in the room.
6. Dried pepper, firecracker, brazier
There has always been a traditional way of moisture-proof in the folk. One is to place dried peppers, which can absorb some water, but always replace them with new ones; the other is to place cannon balls with reliable quality, because there is sulfur in the cannon balls, which can not only remove moisture but also insects.
However, experts cautioned that although the effect of "earthwork" is good, for example, there are safety problems in the artillery battle, so the citizens should be careful when using it. In addition, you can also burn a basin of stove in the room to improve the temperature of the room, so that the water vapor can not condense, so as to reduce the indoor humidity.
7. Change shoes at the door to avoid moisture
People's activities are also a factor that drives water, especially through the soles of their feet. Therefore, before entering the door, you should first change your dry slippers or dry the moisture on the sole of your shoes to avoid bringing water vapor into your home from outside.
At the same time, we should form good habits at home and pay attention to personal hygiene. If do not pour the waste water in the cup on the ceramic tile, step on the sole of shoes after going to the bathroom and then enter the living room, etc., keep the ceramic tile in a dry state at any time.
8. Lay old newspapers on the door
When the wet 'back to the South' comes, in addition to closing the windows in the home, lay waste newspapers on the floor of the 'wet entrance', such as the gate, toilet, kitchen door, etc., which can not only absorb the water on the ground, but also dry the water on the shoes, killing two birds with one stone.
After the old newspaper is very wet, we can also knead it, and it can be used as a rag, with strong water absorption.
9. Other moisture-proof gadgets
Hygroscopic box is more effective for local dehumidification, such as dehumidification in closet, wardrobe, shoe cabinet and even piano. Air conditioning is the most commonly used household dehumidification appliance, which can turn on the dehumidification function and extract the moisture in the room.
The soda powder in the kitchen can absorb moisture. After caking, it can be used as cleaning agent to wash bathtub, wash basin, wash basin, etc. it can remove oil, decontaminate and mildew, with good effect. Quick lime or charcoal can be wrapped in cloth or gunny bags and placed in all parts of the room to keep the air dry.
When the wet days come back to the south, we must close the doors and windows at home, and hang desiccant indoors. If there is no desiccant, lighting candles, dried peppers, firecrackers, braziers, etc. can also have a certain dehumidification effect. At the same time, we should properly open the dehumidification appliances to reduce the indoor air humidity.
