Indoor Plants in your Workplace Clean the Air

Toxins are in your workplace!

Indoor air quality is fast becoming an important issue. Workplace environments have many problems caused by the toxic gases given off by your furnishings and fittings e.g. carpets, furniture, drapes etc as well as problems associated with air conditioning and other office equipment. This is referred to as "Sick building syndrome" and it contributes to the increase in staff suffering minor ailments such as fatigue, headache, sore and dry throats, coughs etc resulting in lost production and increased sick days. It also reduces production rates.

Many different research projects have shown that placing live indoor plants in buildings significantly enhances the air quality including the level of humidity. Staff sick days are reduced and levels of productivity increased. Different types of workplaces have been included in the studies and the results are very encouraging.

Sick building syndrome

The presence of VOC's (volatile organic compounds) is the result of our change to more energy efficient workplaces.
