Decorating a home is not an easy task, through process of decorating, our home will become more perfect. To make our life more comfortable. But decoration is not something you can do whatever you want. There are many places in decor that cannot be moved. If it is moved, it will not only affect house, but even destroy it.
1. Bearing wall
We all know that load-bearing walls cannot be dismantled during repairs. But it is not very clear what a load-bearing wall is. If wall needs to be removed during finishing, it is best to have a professional inspect it and then proceed with construction after it has been confirmed. It is also necessary to report to property management department during construction, and load-bearing wall cannot be removed for safety reasons.
2. The gas pipeline cannot be dismantled
Gas pipes must not be dismantled and modified without permission, as it is easy to cause gas leakage. In severe cases, an explosion will occur. Therefore, if this is not necessary, gas pipeline should not be changed. If modification is necessary, this must also be reported to gas company, and after agreement, modification will be carried out in strict accordance with regulations of gas company.
3. Wall reinforcement is not removed
The steel rods in wall are like bones of human body. If steel bars are damaged during chain conversion, it will affect bearing capacity of entire wall and floor. In this case, if an earthquake occurs, it is easy to destroy or break.
4. Convex balcony
Generally, there are two methods of bearing capacity of balcony slabs on convex balconies: suspended type and suspended ceiling type. In first case, cantilever beams protrude at both ends of balcony, and balcony slabs rest on cantilever beams, in second case, cantilever balcony slabs. In any case, short wall of door joint of window must be balanced, which is called a "counterweight wall", so "short wall" of this type of balcony cannot be removed.
5. Waterproof layer for kitchen and bathroom
The floor of kitchen and bathroom has a waterproofing layer, if it is damaged, lower floor will become a “water curtain”. Therefore, when building on ground, care must be taken not to damage waterproofing layer. If it is damaged, waterproofing project must be carried out again and a 24-hour closed water test must be carried out. If it does not leak, it is considered qualified and can only be qualified. The above is meant to share with you places we shouldn't move while decorating.
