It's hard to imagine the New Year without a Christmas tree. Nobody expects a dirty trick from a natural forest beauty. However, she can also unpleasantly surprise the happy owner of the New Year's symbol. How a Christmas tree can be dangerous for a person, read in the material "Volgogradskaya Pravda.ru".
Before buying a coniferous tree, you need to carefully examine it. If there are notches, pricks, brown marks on the bark, and the needles are yellowed, then it is better not to buy such a Christmas tree. All these signs indicate that someone is living in the trunk. Sensing warmth, insects hiding for the winter will want to settle. They are unlikely to harm people, but the discomfort from uninvited guests will still remain.
Also, experts advise sniffing the tree. Instead of a coniferous scent, it may have an unpleasant odor. Some vendors treat trees with chemicals to protect them from pests, mold and mildew. In an apartment, such Christmas trees will begin to emit harmful substances and can lead to poor health. In addition, Christmas trees can be sprayed with fire safety agents that can cause allergies.
Cough and nasal congestion can also be caused by the natural smell of pine needles. This is especially true for those who suffer from allergic rhinitis and asthma. If the household and guests are not allergic to the resin of conifers, then you can safely dress up the forest beauty at home.
It is also worth noting that any tree on which there are electric garlands can cause a fire. Before dressing it up, it is worth carefully checking all the contacts and connections of electrical jewelry in order to avoid short circuits and electrical injuries. Also, do not overload the network on New Year's Eve by simultaneously turning on electrical appliances, including on the Christmas tree.
