Green Cleaning at Home: Creating Clean Air with Houseplants

Houseplants create more than just an improved look and feel to your budding interior design skills, they also earn their keep by improving the air quality in your home. Different plants can serve a variety of purposes, so base your choices less on aesthetics and more on function:

  • The “Dracaena trifasciata” plant emits most of its oxygen at night, which makes it a perfect addition to your bedroom.
  • Peace lilies and Boston ferns love atmospheric conditions in rooms with high humidity, and often absorb mold spores from the air. These plants would be an ideal fit for your bathroom.
  • Weeping figs are known to be one of the best plants for removing formaldehyde released from furniture and carpets, a byproduct from their manufacturing, making them a great fit for your living room.
