Xi'an decoration class exposes the most common fraud in the cabinet Market

at present, the home decoration industry seems to have developed into a large and inclusive industry. In the face of a wide variety of home decoration industries with fine division, consumers who most need home decoration services are increasingly unable to start, especially the middle-aged and elderly. Ms. Zhang, a citizen who is helping her son decorate his wedding room, complained to reporters that in our city's large and small furniture cities, cabinet dealerships are more luxurious than one, salespeople are more enthusiastic than one, but the price is also higher than one. She felt that the words "piano paint", "BMW paint" and "imported with original packaging" were used in the simple and practical kitchen cabinets, which was difficult for the ordinary working class to accept. Recently, the reporter secretly visited Changzhou cabinet Market and found that there is a widespread phenomenon of playing with concepts and confusing consumers. When buying cabinets, consumers should polish their eyes. "Flicker" the first move: material trap "many consumers look at the cabinet, in fact, is to look at the cabinet door." An insider told reporters that most consumers choose cabinets. When they open their mouth, they want "crystal board", "paint board" or "solid wood board", which is the cabinet door. "The door panel is important, but the box panel is more important." The reporter found in an unannounced interview that the paint door panel is widely used in Changzhou cabinet market at present. The paint baking board is characterized by bright color, easy modeling, good waterproof performance, stain resistance and scratch resistance, but the price is also high. The reporter saw a crystal door cabinet in a cabinet store in our city, which has a three-dimensional shape and exquisite appearance. The salesperson introduced that the door plate made of this material is beautiful, durable, cheap and good, and is now very popular. But in another well-known brand cabinet store, as soon as the reporter inquired about the crystal door panel, he immediately attracted the disdainful eyes of the salesperson, "do you think the crystal panel is good, it will be warped in a year or two, and it is an obsolete style!" The patterns of cabinet door panels are more than these, but the reporter soon found that compared with door panels, box panels that are not valued by consumers are actually more important. The box board bears the functions of waterproof, mildew proof and load-bearing, but because it is hidden in the door board, it is generally not valued by consumers. Some dealers often offer the so-called "preferential price" and "preferential price" with high-priced door panels and low-priced box panels. In fact, these low-quality box panels often get soaked and moldy in a short time, and it is the consumers who suffer. Besides the door panel, the table top is the most colorful. In the investigation, the reporter found that the table brands on the market are mixed, and playing with concepts can be found everywhere. Take the most popular "acrylic" artificial stone countertops as an example. You can buy them from 500 yuan/meter to more than 3000 yuan/meter. Insiders revealed that cheap artificial stones are best not to buy. Most of them are made of inferior resin plus calcium carbonate. The smoothness and wear resistance can't be ignored. Some products even contain substances harmful to human body, so when buying "artificial stone" countertops, you must understand the content of "acrylic" in them. The second trick of "deception": when selling their products, cabinet dealers try their best to boast their products and confuse consumers with the concept of stealing. In the secret interview, the reporter found that the most popular "deceptive language" in Changzhou cabinet market is "from foreign design concepts". "Idea", an invisible thing, not only makes consumers stunned, but also improves the product taste. What is designed with "concept" is imported goods? In a high-end cabinet store known as the national chain, as soon as the reporter entered the door, two salesmen dressed like stewardess surrounded him with a smile. Seeing that the reporter was a little suspicious of the Italian trademark at the door, a salesperson said firmly: "our cabinets are designed with the concept of Italian, European popular style, and many parts are imported." After further understanding, the reporter found that this cabinet is actually a cabinet manufacturer in Guangdong, and the designers are all Chinese. The so-called "imported parts" are actually produced by Guangdong joint ventures. During the unannounced interview, the reporter found that a brand cabinet used a "fire-proof board" in the selection of door panel materials. After chatting with the salesperson, the reporter learned that the fireproof board itself could not completely prevent fire, but it had good fire resistance and flame retardant effect to a certain extent, and the effect could not last for a few minutes. Similarly, the "waterproof board" is only slightly moisture-proof. The seller's "naming" of the door panel material undoubtedly exaggerates the material function. In terms of environmental protection indicators that consumers pay attention to, many cabinet merchants will stick "E0", "E1" and other signs in prominent positions. This is a sign showing which national standard the formaldehyde emission of the product reaches. Insiders said that the current maximum limit standard for formaldehyde in furniture, flooring and other wood products in China is "E1", the national standard of cabinet products is "E2", and some medium and high-end products are "E1". Because it does not contain green moisture-proof agent and adhesive, it is prone to moisture and fracture. "E0" grade plate is not suitable for making cabinets in a humid environment, which consumers should see clearly. In another brand store, the clerk strongly recommended a table top imported from South Korea to the reporter, but the reporter found after receiving the manual that the place of origin was indicated in Qingdao, and the clerk explained: "our company is headquartered in Qingdao, and the place of origin can only be indicated in Qingdao where the head office is located, and the table top materials are indeed imported." But when the reporter "seriously" asked for the customs declaration, the clerk finally admitted that it was "the best counter in China, which can basically compete with imported ones". Almost all cabinets publicize that they use imported hardware accessories such as "Blum", but the reporter and the clerk learned after talking that these hardware accessories have factories in China, and in order to reduce costs, in addition to several first-line brands and manufacturers signed use agreements, they will use original imported accessories, and most of them will still choose domestic parts to replace them, and still deceive consumers with "imported hardware". The two are almost the same in trademark and appearance, and are installed inside the cabinet, which is more difficult to be found by consumers. So when shopping for cabinets, consumers can't ignore small hinges. It's best to specify them in detail when signing the contract. The third trick of "deception": there are many authentication patterns. On March 5, the reporter saw in the cabinet area of a home building materials store in our city that the environmental protection inspection certificates provided by some cabinet merchants are mostly the inspection reports of local plates, or the environmental protection product recommendation certificates issued by an association or an institution. In general, there are many kinds of certification, but there is basically no unified certification by authoritative departments. Industry insiders said that in the face of a large number of bright bronze medals hanging on the wall, consumers would not "be more serious". According to insiders, at present, although cabinet enterprises have played the environmental protection brand one after another, not many have really been recognized by authoritative departments. There is no lack of some enterprises in the market to deceive consumers with "false environmental protection". It is understood that at present, the environmental protection certification of cabinet products in the market, only the "China environmental label product certification" certified by the environmental certification center of the State Environmental Protection Administration, which is often referred to as the "ten ring certification" is the more authoritative green mark at present. The products approved to use this mark not only require qualified quality, but also meet specific environmental protection requirements in the process of production, use and treatment. Compared with similar products, they have environmental advantages such as low toxicity, less harm and resource conservation. The fourth trick of "deception": there is a mystery in the installation. It is reported that first-line cabinet brands often provide a full set of design and installation services. The business will send staff to measure the relevant dimensions on site, and ask professional designers to design. Generally, it can be installed on site in about one month. After the cabinet is installed, the consumer should carry out corresponding inspections, such as: whether the surface of the cabinet is scratched, bruised, cracked, etc., whether the overall installation position is changed, whether the cabinet, countertop and hanging cabinet are inclined after the combination, whether there is a gap at the junction of the panel and cabinet body, whether there is leakage at the drainage pipe and sink, etc. During the acceptance, it should be carefully checked against the contract and design drawings to avoid unclear explanation of problems found in the future
