The Importance of Indoor Houseplants and Air Quality

What is Indoor Air Quality and Why is Good Air Quality Important?
Indoor air quality is the level of purity that is found in the air within a building. Indoor air is more likely to be polluted by contaminants like dust and dirt particles than outdoor air. A confined area tends to harbor dirt and particles that remain trapped by doors and windows. Good air quality is necessary to prevent health conditions like sick building syndrome and respiratory illnesses, such as asthma and allergies, that are caused by unwanted particles. Ensuring that your indoor air is clean is mostly a health issue.

Importance of Air Quality for House PlantsLike humans and pets, house plants need clean air to breathe and survive. Plants remove carbon dioxide, formaldehyde and other toxins from the air, but they cannot do this if the air is too polluted. Maintaining the process of phytoremediation is important to maintain a healthy home.

How to Improve Indoor Air Quality
Introduce house plants in your home and place them in every other room. Plants improve air quality by removing carbon dioxide in the air and releasing oxygen in a process known as photosynthesis. They can absorb pollutants on their leaves and through their soil. When it's hot, try opening the windows to let in fresh air than turning on the air conditioner.

Also, consider investing in an air purifier. An air purifier is designed to remove all traces of airborne dirt and debris. For it to work properly, replace the filter every few months. For people who don't use air purifying devices, they must clean their A/C filters and clean the vents, as well as air ducts regularly. If unsure how to do it properly, they can always consult our professionals at Pro Climate HVAC Services. 

Poor indoor air quality never improves completely by turning on the A/C or opening the windows. Introducing plants into a toxic home is guaranteed to clean up the air significantly. There are other methods to include in a proper remediation plan.
