When you are stuck at home for a long period of time, the air can start to feel stagnant. House plants are a great way to naturally purify the air in your home and bring the outside in. Indoor air pollution can make health issues such as asthma and allergies worse, according to the EPA. Because furniture, walls, and carpets in your home can hold toxins, it’s best to figure out a way to purify your home.
