Do you have any plants in your home? Some of us enjoy having some live plants growing in our home, while others can’t be bothered. The choice is not only going to affect the appearance of your apartment, it will also affect the air you breathe. Plants can actually filter out many harmful chemicals from the air in your home. Even though the chemicals you find in indoor air usually aren’t at high enough levels to do permanent damage, they can still cause many respiratory problems, as well as headaches.
The reasons why you find chemicals in the air of your home are many. It might be coming out of aerosol cans, cleaning products or even evaporating from items in your home. Depending on how much effort you want to put into caring for these plants, you can pick plants that are higher or lower maintenance. Be careful not to over-water the plants, since this could leak on your floor and cause damage.
