3 Plants that Improve Indoor Air Quality

If you or a loved one in the home has allergies, there are definite times when its best to stay indoors as much as possible. But many homeowners forget that their indoor air can also become polluted. Fortunately, nature has some effective plans for helping to clean the air, and you can bring that purifying power into your home. Place these three plants in your home and you’ll have natural air filters that will reduce your indoor air pollution.

Peace Lily

Maybe you don’t feel like your thumb is green enough to care for plants on a daily basis. Fortunately, peace lilies don’t need much hands-on care to stay alive. These plants should never be placed in direct sunlight and require little light. When you see a slight droop in leaves, it’s time to water. In addition to being easy to care for, peace lilies are one of the most effective plants for removing volatile organic compounds (also known as VOCs) from your air, such as formaldehyde, benzene, and more.

Aloe Vera

Why buy the green gel from the store when you can have an aloe vera plant in your living room? You can use the gel inside aloe vera leaves to speed up the healing of burns and minor cuts. But aloe vera is also good for more than a sunburn. These plants can clean your air of the benzene that’s common in some chemical cleaners and paints. Plus, aloe vera is easy to care for, regardless of your experience with plants.

Snake Plant

Also known as Mother-In-Law’s Tongue, snake plants are one of the best natural air purifiers out there. Place them in a room and they will absorb airborne toxins such as trichlorethylene, xylene, nitrogen oxide, formaldehyde, and more. Snake plants are great for the indoors since they don’t need much light to stay healthy. Let the soil dry out totally before watering as they are prone to rot from over watering than to dry up from less water.

Bring a little green into your home and you’ll quickly purify your indoor air. For a professional hand further improving your indoor air quality, call Trinity Air Inc. at (770) 285-1990.
