Houseplants and other ways to clear the air

If you've been hankering for a boost in your indoor air quality as of late, investing in some green stuff for your home can be a major step on the road to improvement.

According to the Columbus Dispatch, researchers have confirmed that some species of houseplants can remove harmful toxins from the air and effectively improve indoor air quality using photosynthesis techniques.

Peg McMahon, associate professor of horticulture and plant science at Ohio State University, told the news source that the addition of plants "won't hurt, and they certainly do have the capacity to clean" and that "what they do for your mood is at least as good as what they do for your respiratory system."

In order to be effective, however, you need one or two plants for every hundred square feet, and even then, plants can't filter every airborne contaminant.

If you really want a thoroughly well-done job, consider investing in a professional grade air purifying system. The Airgle 750 HEPA Air Purifier performed with the highest Clean Air Delivery Rate (CADR) among 159 other leading brands in independent laboratory tests and effectively tackles smoke, mold, dust, pollen, pet dander and a range of other airborne pollutants.
