There are certain houseplants that we feel a good vibe around them because they purify the indoor air by neutralizing those fine dust particles, cigarette smoke, bacteria, viruses and mold spores. That’s why it’s crucial to know the type of plants we bring into our bedroom, because there is the place where we lay down for a good night sleep.
Certain plants have the ability to absorb carbon dioxide and release oxygen but also to eliminate dangerous chemicals indoors that can lead to serious diseases.
Growing plants indoors won’t heal diseases but it can clearly contribute to the relief of certain breathing problems. So, read the following lines to know which plants you should keep indoors.
Sansevieria (my mom used to call it the snake plant) is one of the most effective plants in filtering formaldehyde. This toxic substance is found in various cleaning products and cosmetics and also in the paint used for furniture. If you live in an area with intense pollution or you smoke indoors, a Sansevieria mustn’t miss from there.
Spathiphyllum or Peace Lily was included on the list of the most-wanted houseplants. It’s useful in dissolving many toxins from the air such as benzene found in paints, varnishes, cleaning products, liquid soaps, rubber and cigarette smoke. This substance is particularly dangerous, because it cause severe breathing difficulties. Growing Spathiphyllum in the bedroom is the best deal because it loves low-lit and semi-shady places.
Keep in mind! You have to dust the leaves periodically.
Rubber plant is another air purifying plant by dissolving indoor pollutants which come out from furniture, carpets and other cleaning products. To benefit of its air purifying capacity it’s absolutely necessary to dust its leaves with a soft and damp cloth.
