Incredible Houseplants That Clean the Air

Categories: Health & Nutrition

Nephrolepis Fern

This plant likes cool humid areas and reflected light. The bathroom is a perfect place for this little green helper. The fern is great at cleaning up xylene in the air. 

Sansevieria (’Snake Plant’)

This plant can be seen everywhere, mostly in offices and restaurants. Why? It requires almost no care. It only needs to be watered about once a month: it likes dry air and little sunlight. They help remove benzene, formaldehyde, trichloroethylene and xylene from indoor air. 

Chamaedorea (’Bamboo Palm’)

The Bamboo Palm is great for cleaning up formaldehyde in the air. You’d better put it on the window sill at first to give it sufficient access to sunlight. It might grow up to 3 meters in height, and give you a lot of fresh air. And it looks awesome. They remove benzene, formaldehyde and trichloroethylene. 

Aloe Vera

Aloe Vera is a plant for all occasions. It can treat burns and colds, but also cleans the air perfectly. A single Aloe Vera plant can refresh any small apartment. It removes formaldehyde effectively from indoor air.
