Do you love breathing polluted air? Is the air present in your home pure and safe?
Do you know that you can develop lung cancer by inhaling polluted and poisonous air?
If you are living with a small kid or toddler, inhaling polluted air can be very hazardous to the health of the small kid.
There are many reasons for air being polluted in the room: it can be caused by a cigar or pollution released by cars or by CFCs released by home electronic equipments.
Air purification can be a somewhat daunting process, as you need to spend lots of money to buy equipment to clean the air. For this reason, many people completely give up the idea of purifying the air, and neglect healthy living because of cost.
If you want to inhale pure air without buying costly equipment, the best idea is to introduce a range of indoor plants to purify the contaminated air.
There are many indoor plants which can help you to purify contaminated air, but there are just as many poisonous ones. When selecting plants, the prime objective is to ensure the plants are safe in all respects.
Role of plants in purifying your indoor air:
Plants absorb dangerous carbon dioxide and exude oxygen. Therefore, when plants are introduced into the home, they use that process to purify the air. [Indoor Gardening]
Leaves of plants absorb the dangerous chemical (CO2) present in the air and cut down adverse effects while purifying it.
The microbes that are present in plant roots absorb chemicals and transfer them as plant food. Specific indoor plants are grown for just this reason; these indoor plants are experts in removing toxins in the air.
