Indoor air quality is a concern for many Americans and with good reason. Poor air quality can lead to short and long term health issues over time. There are many potential problems inside homes that lead to poor air quality. And exposure to indoor pollutants is no small problem when you consider that Americans spend 80 percent to 90 percent of their time indoors.
There are many things that lead to poor air quality including mold issues, smoking, pets, appliances, fires, paint, humidity and much more. Considering the amount of time that we spend indoors it is important to regularly check air quality in home and use preventative measures when possible.
A study from NASA and B.C. Wolverton's has given us great insight into which plants are the best at filtering CO2 and releasing clean oxygen. These plants were also tested for there ability to remove VOCs (volatile organic compounds) which are also harmful and found in our air. Some VOCs that are significantly removed by these plants include benzene, formaldehyde ,trichloroethylene, xylene, and toluene. Using these studies and other information gathered we are able to offer a full assortment of houseplants that are great at filtering air.
It is recommended that a clean air houseplant is placed in everyroom of the house or every 100 square feet. If this is not possible we suggest putting these plants in the most commonly used rooms in the house like bedrooms, livingrooms, and kitchens.
The first list of air-filtering plants was compiled by NASA as part of the NASA Clean Air Study, which researched ways to clean air in space stations. As well as absorbing carbon dioxide and releasing oxygen, as all plants do, these plants also eliminate significant amounts of benzene, formaldehyde and/or trichloroethylene.
