Plants to Help Improve Your Indoor Air Quality Published on March 10, 2017 If you are wanting to improve your indoor air quality, a simple call to Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning will do the trick. But you can easily boost the efforts of any indoor air quality system while adding a stylish calm to your home. How? Head to your local nursery! Several houseplants have been shown to eliminate or trap toxins and raise indoor air quality. Not confident you have a green thumb? No worries, these plants demand minimal care. Check a few of them out! Peace Lily Peace lilies can literally absorb mold spores using their leaves. The spores find their way to the roots and are used as sustenance for the flower. This feature, and their need for very little light, make peace lilies a great option for bathrooms. They can assist in keeping bathroom surfaces clear of mildew and are also known to absorb harmful vapors created by alcohol and acetone. Spider Plant If you suffer from allergies, or someone who lives in your home does, a spider plant could be ideal for your home. Not only are they incredibly easy to grow, but they absorb mold and other impurities that cause allergies. They can even absorb traces of carbon monoxide generated by home appliances and formaldehyde, which is included in many cleaners. Aloe Vera Aloe Vera is a true must when it comes to keeping your home healthy. It helps eliminate airborne benzene given off from paint and some chemical cleaning products. Not only does it help keep your air clean, the gel in its leaves is perfect for treating minor cuts and burns. Could it get even better? While it works hard to take care of your home, you don’t have to do much to take care of it. No green thumb required. Interested in doing more for your indoor air quality?
