Can Indoor Plants Improve Air Quality

Posted July 22, 2015

Do you suffer from indoor allergies or other respiratory problems? You're not alone - and the air inside your own home may be making your symptoms worse. So what can you do to improve IAQ? Here are a few houseplants that can help:


The aloe vera plant is easy to grow and it helps clear the air of formaldehyde and benzene which are common byproducts of chemical cleaners and paints. If you have a sunny kitchen window, this is the perfect spot for the Aloe plant.

Gerber Daisy

Not only is this plant a beautiful and bright color, it is also effective at removing trichloroethylene. What is that? It's a chemical solvent most commonly used at your dry cleaner. Placing this plant in your bedroom or laundry room can help get rid of the chemical, as long as it gets plenty of light.


Want to brighten up your home office or living room? The beautiful color of the Chrysanthemum's flowers will do just that while removing benzene from the air. Benzene is also commonly found in glue, plastics and detergent, and this plant will help you fight back.

Warneck dracaena

Want to tackle pollutants found in oils and varnishes? This plant grows easily indoors even if it is not subject to direct sunlight. Need a permanent solution for your poor indoor air quality?
