Can Plants Help Improve Your Indoor Air Quality?

Serving Families Throughout Dallas

In the late 80’s, NASA scientists discovered that houseplants can be used to purify the air in their space facilities. And these same plants can filter out common VOCs (volatile organic compounds) in your home as well — which is actually far more polluted than the outdoors.

Peace Lily

This beautiful plant can improve your indoor air quality by as much as 60 percent! They absorb mold spores using their leaves and then use it as food. We suggest placing them in your bathroom to help clean the mildew of the bathrooms surfaces.

Spider Plant

If you are constantly battling a runny nose or scratchy throat, a spider plant would be best for your home. Not only are they incredibly easy to grow, but they absorb mold and other allergy triggers.

Aloe Vera

Aloe Vera isn’t just beneficial for after burn care. It also helps remove airborne benzene given off from chemical cleaners. Added bonus: no green thumb required!

English Ivy

Did you know that the English Ivy plant can help you be more focused? It absorbs benzene, a chemical that’s commonly found in office equipment.
