If you’re like most homeowners in Carrollton, Georgia, you’ve probably written down a few New Year’s resolutions you’d like to stick to in 2018. Whether it’s promising to exercise more, eat less junk food or quit smoking, you can’t go wrong with prioritizing your health. But if you really want to live a healthier life in 2018, you must start where you spend the most time: your home. With that said, here are a few ideas to improve your home’s polluted and poor indoor air quality:
Place These Air-Filtering Plants Around Your Home
In 1989, NASA concluded a study to find out which plants worked best for cleaning the air inside their space stations. While the space agency’s findings have aided their astronauts in breathing fresher air, they have also helped homeowners improve poor indoor air quality. As a result, they’ve also improved their quality of life – on earth!
Benzene, formaldehyde and trichloroethylene are all harmful to your health. When you place these air-filtering plants around your home, they not only release oxygen but also absorb carbon dioxide. What’s more, if you place one plant per 100 square feet of space in your home, the plants will work together to eliminate toxins in your home’s air.
