4 Air-Purifying House Plants You Need Right Now

Headaches. Nausea. Dizziness. Throat irritation. These are just a few of the symptoms you may experience if you have poor indoor air quality. And we hate to break it to you, but the air inside your home is likely filled with airborne contaminants.

But there’s no need to stress. There are lots of ways to clean up the air you breathe inside your home. One of the ways includes placing air-purifying house plants throughout your home. Go ahead, take a deep breath. These plants will work wonders:

  1. Dracaena: with over 40 different types, this plant is easy to find and there’s an option for every home or office. If you have pets however, you may want to choose something else. This plant is toxic to dogs and cats.

  2. Peace Lily: this small plant packs a big punch – when it comes to cleaning up your air, that is. They’re easy to grow and help remove ammonia, benzene and formaldehyde from the air.

  3. Snake Plant: looking for something that’s going to last a very long time? This is your plant. It needs to be watered occasionally and prefers drier conditions but it will help get rid of trichloroethylene and xylene.

  4. Bamboo Palm: Formaldehyde stands no chance with Bamboo Palms around. They thrive in full sun or bright light and they can grow to 12 feet high. They’re exciting and pet-friendly!
