Tips for Improving Indoor Air Quality

Are you interested in improving the indoor air quality of your home or office? If so, you’ve come to the right place!

The good news is that there are a wide variety of things that you can do to improve indoor air quality including purchasing specific types of plants including the following.

  1. Snake Plant (also called Mother-in-law’s Tongue) – Per the NASA study, this hearty plant filters a wide range of commonly found toxins in households – benzene, formaldehyde, trichloroethylene, xylene, and ammonia. It grows in bright shade and requires only one watering per week.
  2. Peace Lily – filters a wide range of commonly found toxins in households, including benzene, formaldehyde, trichloroethylene, xylene, and ammonia. It is drought tolerant but thrives on regular weekly watering. It has beautiful white flowers. Generally found in a table-top size, larger varieties grow to six feet wide and high and offer more filtering.
  3. Spider Plant – can clean your home’s air of formaldehyde, carbon monoxide, and xylene. As a hanging plant that likes to sprawl out, it’s an excellent choice for highlighting a dark corner or along the tops of cabinets or mantelpieces.
  4. Parlor Palm and Lady Palm – These are two slightly different palms with similar origin and maintenance needs. Because they originate in tropical zones, they enjoy high humidity levels as well as well-drained soil. It’s vital to avoid colder temperatures (below 60 degrees). Both filter the most commonly found toxins in households -benzene, formaldehyde, trichloroethylene, xylene, and ammonia.
  5. Cornstalk Plant – This plant requires low light, but in a word of caution, it cannot tolerate warm settings (never higher than 90 degrees). It’s a tall growing plant and is often used to fill in room corners. It filters a wide range of commonly found toxins in households: benzene, formaldehyde, trichloroethylene, xylene, and ammonia.
