So the easiest way to improve your indoor air is to clean your biggest air filter in your home and that is your wall to wall carpet. But, do not just clean it, have it professionally clean! But, do not just pick any cleaner, pick The Healthy Carpet (919) 446-5379, we clean with your health in mind. Using NO Water, NO MOLDS and NO Chemical!
The second easiest way to improve your indoor air is to have indoor plants! NASA researchers suggest efficient air cleaning is accomplished with at least one plant per 100 square feet of home or office space.1
As mom, we are concern on what is poisonous and not. The list of plants below are NON-Toxic Indoor Air plants! I also added the picture so you know exactly the kind of plants we are looking for. Have fun!
Nephrolepis exaltata, the sword fern, is a species of fern in the family Lomariopsidaceae (sometimes treated in the familiesDavalliaceae or Oleandraceae, or in its own family, Nephrolepidaceae), native to tropical regions throughout the world.
Liriope spicata is a species of low, herbaceous flowering plants from East Asia. Common names include creeping lilyturf, creeping liriope, lilyturf, and monkey grass.
