Can Plants Help Improve Indoor Air Quality?

The quality of the air inside a house can greatly affect the mood and the general personality of a person. Many people choose to get some sort of air filtration method installed for this; AC installation is also favored, especially in the hot summer months.

However, the question as to whether or not plants really help improve indoor air quality is one that our customers at Curtis Total Service have asked us time and time again. A lot of plants that can be kept indoors, but do they really affect the indoor air quality when you bring them inside your home? The answer is: yes, they can.

Placing plants inside your home is sure to give you that breath of fresh air every now and then. Of course, not every plant is suitable for indoor use, but there are still countless houseplants that are easily available in most markets.

Here are the top 3 plants that improve indoor air quality:

Aloe Vera
The Aloe Vera plant is very popular for all sorts of reasons. Aloe Vera removes airborne benzene, and helps keep air in the home clean and fresh. Among the plethora of benefits this plant has, the gel can also be used for skin cleansing and for treating cuts and wounds.

Gerbera Daisy
The Gerbera Daisy is a bright colored flowering plant that actively filters out benzene and removes trichloroethylene. The plant needs a minimum of six hours in the sun each day.
