HOUSTON – Houseplants make for great décor, but have you ever considered the other benefits of these plants?

Some plants can actually help to improve the quality of air in your home by pulling pollutants from the air.

That’s right, your houseplants can act as natural air purifiers by removing toxins from your home.

THE BOSTON FERN: Can remove formaldehyde, xylene, and benzene from the air

THE PEACE LILY: Offers a boost to your indoor air quality by removing formaldehyde and benzene from the air. Keep in mind the Peace Lily is toxic to pets so you should feature this flower in spaces without furry friends

THE SPIDER PLANT: Removes both benzene and formaldehyde from the air

Maintaining good indoor air quality can help the health of you and your families. If you’re looking to further improve your indoor air quality efforts past getting new houseplants, contact the professionals at One Hour Air Conditioning and Heating of Houston today at 855-ONE HOUR.
