Why is it more beneficial to hire indoor plants now than in the past?
Indoor plants have been proven to remove harmful airborne contaminants. Most people spend the majority of time indoors at home or work. Air conditioning, improved insulation, and energy-saving all reduce air exchange in buildings, so while indoor we breathe the same air again and again. As the modern indoor environment is virtually hermetically sealed and the construction materials used, modern synthetic furnishings, computers, electrical equipment, and everyday household products such as cleaning material, can produce harmful substances that are trapped inside the building. These all contribute to the well recognised "sick building syndrome".
Polluted indoor air, contaminated by volatile organic compounds (VOCs), are a major cause of headaches, nausea, sore & itchy eyes, loss of concentration and other "sick building" symptoms. The simple addition of indoor plants is a natural way to help remove these pollutants significantly.
Indoor plants absorb carbon dioxide and emit oxygen. This obviously reduces your carbon footprint but also the increased oxygen level refreshes the air -and you! - leading to increased concentration and productivity (in various studies between 10%-15% increase).
