Mid-west weather makes it necessary to spend much of your time indoors. Unable to open the windows to circulate fresh air your apartment can suffer from indoor pollutants.
Indoor pollutants are a build up of particles, gases and chemicals that impact indoor air quality.
How do you you help counter-act poor air quality within your own four walls?
OakParkApartments.com suggests introducing house plants into your space.
Plants are natures best filter so when we introduce them into our indoor environments they naturally begin to combat “indoor ozone”.
NASA, the Associated Landscape Contractors of America and The Journal of American Society of Horticultural Science have published extensive studies on the positive effects certain houseplants have on indoor air quality.
Introducing plants into your apartment can help to clear out chemicals and pollutants that are the byproducts of the products we use every day – chemical-based cleaners, paint, furniture, carpets, plastics, personal care products and more.
These four plants are not only known for their great air filtering powers but are also “easy-care” plants-so having a green thumb is not required.
