We all want to have a fresh and clean home. While part of it is up to us, we can put certain houseplants to keep the air in our home clean quite effectively. Filtering out pollutants, and toxins in the air are extremely important. Whether you live in a small apartment or a big house, having clean air is of great importance. Plants are excellent for removing carbon dioxide from the air, but some plants are even more powerful, than that and are able to remove many other air pollutants including formaldehyde, benzene, trichloroethylene, xylene, and ammonia.
