Long rental apartments must bid farewell to "short-sighted management".

Newspaper reporter Kang Shu

"Food is the first thing for the people, safety is the first thing." Rental decoration quality is always the focus of attention from all walks of life.

As a result of very few long-Rent apartment operators in pursuit of profit, blindly pursue rapid decoration, fast rental, in order to recover funds as soon as possible. In this process, there are hidden dangers in the quality of building materials, air safety is worrying, there is widespread neglect of the health of tenants.

Recently, reports of chaos in long rental apartments are reported everywhere. Among them, the most important concern is the air quality problem of long rental apartments. A Hangzhou Alibaba employee died of leukemia six months after staying in a long-Rent apartment, and his family suspected that the formaldehyde level in his long-Rent apartment was exceeded, media reported recently.

After the "simultaneous rent and sale" policy was put forward, the outbreak of growth in the rental housing market is a probable event. But "the people take food as the day, live in peace as the first", the quality of rental housing decoration has always been the focus of attention from all walks of life.

It is understood that in the Alibaba employee incident, the concerned long-term rental apartment brand freely responded to social concerns several times, promising to shelve 90% of the first rental housing, to be tested and qualified before shelving. At the same time, it is also promised that all the first rental housing sources, after the completion of the configuration, must meet the air quality by the authoritative authority to test qualified and vacant for more than 30 days before going on shelves for rent.

In fact, the long rental apartments with air quality are more than just one. With the merger of rent and purchase policy gradually landed, "buy more than lease" idea has been gradually reversed, the housing rental industry is growing prosperous. Long-rent apartment enterprises rent houses from the lessors, after decoration to improve living conditions, and then rent to tenants, is conducive to increasing market supply, ease the contradiction between supply and demand. But because very few long-Rent apartment operators in pursuit of profit, blindly pursue rapid decoration, fast rental, in order to recover funds as soon as possible. In this process, there are hidden dangers in the quality of building materials, air safety is worrying, there is a widespread neglect of the health of tenants.

Although some long-Rent apartment operators promise to improve the quality of building materials, strengthen the control, and prolong the vacancy time, but the indoor air quality problems after decoration is likely to exist for a long time. Experts said that the decoration process of the use of wood-based panel formaldehyde release time is 3 to 15 years, this time will also change with temperature, climate change. In summer or winter, the release of formaldehyde will increase especially after heating. This also means that, after the treatment of air testing, although qualified, with climate and other changes in the later period, formaldehyde and other pollutants may still exceed the standard. In addition, the relevant detection and control unit entry threshold is low, mixed fish and dragon, detection results and control effect are also deviated.

Yang Chunyu, secretary-general of the Housing Rental Industry Branch of China Building Decoration Association, introduced that the industry is also looking for new technologies and new materials to replace traditional decoration methods, hoping to solve the problem of decoration pollution. For example, assembly decoration. The so-called assembly decoration is the floor, wallboard and other decoration parts prefabricated in advance in the factory, to the scene assembly. In Beijing, a large number of public rental housing has taken the lead in this decoration process, Beijing on the assembly decoration of the local standards have not long ago opened.

Indoor air quality is only one aspect of long-term apartment development which needs to be paid great attention to. In order to realize the benign development of long-term apartment, it needs to be standardized as a whole and strictly supervised. Previously, high rents in Beijing and other cities were thought to be related to capital entering the long-Rent apartment sector, and brands competing for housing. At the same time, some long-Rent apartment enterprises will also long-Rent apartment rental contracts, into the tenant and the bank's loan contract, "rental loans" let the tenant suffer losses. All these issues deserve great attention from all sides.
