Did you know that many common indoor plants can actually absorb certain pollutants and actively clean the air inside your office building? Air purifying plants and regular Manhattan plant maintenance in your office can help you stay healthy, and avoid respiratory problems caused by certain air impurities.
NASA has found that various indoor houseplants are extremely effective at filtering nasty toxins like formaldehyde, benzene, and trichloroethylene from the air. These toxins often contribute to indoor air quality issues and indefinite illnesses. Symptoms of “sick building syndrome” include eye, nose, and throat irritation, hypersensitivity reactions, and odor/taste sensations.
Many Manhattan office buildings have poor natural air circulation, which makes them reliant on indoor air systems that recycle air rather than circulating fresh air. This recycled air can acquire contaminants over time.
Try getting a few green plants to help purify the air inside your office in Manhattan. Plant maintenance at regular intervals will help ensure your plants stay healthy, and so will you!
