If you are wanting to improve your indoor air quality, an easy call to Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning will do the trick. What you may not know is that you can easily increase the efforts of any indoor air quality product while adding a trendy calm to your home. How? Go to your community greenhouse! Multiple houseplants have been shown to get rid of or trap toxins and improve indoor air quality.

Don’t think you have a green thumb? No worries, these plants need minimal care. Check a few of them out!

Peace Lily

Peace lilies can literally absorb mold spores using their leaves. The spores make their way to the roots and are used as food for the lily. This feature, and their need for very little light, make peace lilies a fabulous option for bathrooms. They can provide support in keeping bathroom surfaces clean of mildew and are also known to absorb destructive vapors created by alcohol and acetone.

 

Spider Plant

If you suffer from allergies, or someone who lives in your home does, a spider plant could be best for your home. Not only are they incredibly easy to grow, but they absorb mold and other allergy triggers. They can even absorb traces of carbon monoxide produced by home appliances and formaldehyde, which is included in many cleaning products.

 

Aloe Vera

Aloe Vera is a real powerhouse when it comes to keeping you healthy. It helps remove airborne benzene given off from paint and some chemical cleaners. Not only does it help keep your air clean, the gel inside its leaves is great for treating minor cuts and burns. And what’s even better? While the plant works hard to take care of you, you have to do minimal to take care of it. No green thumb required.
