Breathe Easier with Glamorous Plant Décor

Tue, 12 Feb 2013 by Polycorp

You’re probably familiar with air pollution from smog, greenhouse effect gases, cigarette smoke and motor vehicles. But did you know there are pollutants floating around the inside of your new condo in Halifax NS? They include but aren’t limited to: toluene, nitrogen oxide, ethyl acetate, methylene, acetone, chloroform, benzene, formaldehyde and trichloroethylene. Found in cleaning products, electronics and plastics, these toxins are bad for your health and can cause asthma, cancer, heart disease as well as other harmful allergens.  

Houseplants can serve a dual purpose. They’re visually appealing and the vibrant colors of the plants and the flowers help to energize your condo and contribute to your condo’s décor. Colorful pots, pot holders and vases can also add character to your place. In addition, houseplants can also be used to improve the air quality in your condo. Below is a list of 10 recommended houseplants and flowers that can help purify the air inside your Halifax NS new condo:

  1. Aloe Vera 
  2. Azaleas
  3. Bamboo palm
  4. Boston fern
  5. Chinese evergreen
  6. Chrysanthemum
  7. Marginata
  8. Peace lily
  9. Snake plant
  10. Weeping fig

Plants promote good health by emitting CO2, removing harmful gases in the air and fighting pollution. Soil and roots also play a part in reducing toxins in the air because of the micro-organisms. Because carbon dioxide converts to oxygen, it’s a good idea to put your plants in areas that’ll benefit from this the most. Ideal locations include your new condo in Halifax NS bedroom, bathroom, kitchen and work station. Breathe easier and add glamour to your condo by incorporating plants into your décor.
