The level of air pollution in the environment has risen in the past few years. Poisonous gases and particulate matter that are emitted from the vehicles, factories, and other sources, that result in various diseases.
The indoor environment emits chemicals that are equally dangerous when compared to the external pollutants. The furniture, paints, adhesives, carpets, insulation, building material used in the house and many such items emit the volatile organic chemicals (VOCs). Indoor plants absorb these chemicals and helps to purify the air.
The most important benefit of indoor plants is their ability to absorb carbon dioxide. In return they emit oxygen and help in cleansing the air. They also absorb harmful chemicals and toxins. The experiments conducted to test the absorption capacity of indoor plants have yielded excellent results.
