Cleaner Air with these Five Plants

Green plants are a wonderful way to beautify your home, but many plants also do a great job of keeping our indoor air clean.  Many customers come in specifically seeking plants with these qualities.  We spend a lot of time indoors at home or at work and energy improvements and air conditioning can reduce the amount of fresh air we get in those closed spaces.  Plants help improve our indoor environments by cleaning pollution out of indoor air and by converting C02 to oxygen.  Additionally, lots of products in our homes break down over time and emit chemicals like benzene, formaldahyde and other toxins into the air.

Add several air purifying plants to the rooms you use the most.  Plants are especially beneficial in rooms where you have recently painted, carpeted or added new furniture too.  All of these items can release pollutants in the air so the more plants the better! In the home plants also absorb noise and lessen dust.  They help our interior spaces feel more open, cared for and cleaner. Everyone can use a little green and colorful boost during the cold and often drab winter months.
