Can house plants really help clean the air in your home?

Categories: New Homes in Raleigh | Posted: December 6, 2019

Now that the holiday season is officially in full force and Christmas is just weeks away, many of us are getting our homes ready for company. Most homeowners want to give their guests the smell and look of a clean home when they come to visit. However, have you stopped to think about how clean the air is in your home? Mattamy Homes, a premier homebuilder for New Homes in Raleigh, shares if house plants can really help clean the air in your home.

There are a lot of all natural products out on the market these days, and many people have been under the impression that a great way to clean the air and toxins out of your home can be done through house plants. However, that is actually not the case at all!

In 1989, NASA did a study to see if they could find new ways to clean the air in space stations. They did get some interesting findings, however the fact that house plants clean the air was not one of them. However, many news articles wrote stories about the study and spun it so it seemed that house plants could eliminate or help remove toxins from a home. This however, is not the case.

It turns out that the people of NASA created a machine that involved some household plants, in their study and did find some good health benefits in terms of the air quality. However, the plants themselves did not do anything in terms of changing the quality of the air around them.

Articles published on this study on the other hand, named the plants used in the study and touted them as “air friendly” plants that could help clear up the pollution and toxins in the air around them. This however, is not the case and was a falsehood that went around during the time of the study, got picked up by media outlets and has stuck since then.

For example, an EPA reviewer who did a study after the review came out said that someone would need to purchase about 680 plants in their home, to achieve the results of the NASA study. Most homeowners could save themselves the time and just vacuum more often!

However, this should not deter you from purchasing house plants for your home or throwing out all of the house plants you currently have! House plants are actually proven to boost peoples moods. Especially if you live in the city where you may not see or have much greenery around you, house plants can give you that added freshness and nature-like feel in your home to help lift your mood no matter what time of year.

There are studies that prove house plants can improve your concentration, your calmness and productivity.

So, consider adding some house plants to your home this holiday season to lighten the mood of your home!
