Improve Air Quality with Indoor Plants

 

Research by NASA shows indoor plants reduce the levels of Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs) found in office air. VOCs such as benzene, toluene and formaldehyde are emitted by office furnishings, carpets, copiers, printers, glues and cleaning products. These harmful VOCs are absorbed by micro organisms found in the potting media of healthy indoor plants.

 

The direct benefits of indoor plants on the air we breathe are evident:


  • Pollutants (VOCs) are filtered from indoor
  • Carbon dioxide levels are reduced
  • Humidity levels are regulated
  • Airborne moulds and bacteria are suppressed

 

By improving air quality, indoor plants help reduce 'Sick Building Syndrome'. Common symptoms include sore or dry throat, cough, headache, dry eyes and fatigue. These symptoms can then lead to feeling unwell, poor productivity and staff absenteeism. Extensive studies have found the following results occur with the introduction of indoor plants to office buildings:

 

'Sick Building Syndrome' ailment reduction

 

  • Fatigue 20%
  • Headache 30%
  • Sore/dry throat 30%
  • Cough 40%
  • Dry facial skin 25%
