It is true that indoor air can be 10 times more polluted then the outdoor air. This is due to the fact that our furniture, rugs, walls etc may release toxic products like benzene and formaldehyde. These and other toxic elements often trigger headache, undue tiredness, wheezing and allergic reactions. The best way to avoid such conditions is by using no VOC paint products and you can also use some of the following ways to detox your home.
Place a salt crystal lamp in your living areas.
These are available all over the world and especially in salt producing regions. The salt crystals are released into the air when the salt is heated. They attach the impurities to themselves, which stops them from circulating around in the air around you. The toxins and other pollutants are considerably neutralized and it is a great form of light therapy.
Use a Water fountain/small pool.
Moving water release negative ions, which attach themselves to the air pollutants and hence prevent you from breathing them in. Fountains are as effective in filtering air as a HEPA filter. All sorts of air borne germs are washed away by the moving water.
Cactus is a great detox. Study has proved that if a cactus plant is places next to the working stations of avid workers, they show improved performance. It is said that the compounds released from cactus work against the radiation and electromagnetic pollution produced from the computer screens.
Indoor plants are perhaps the most commonly used air cleaners. According to a research conducted by NASA, house plants, like gerbera daisies and spider plants can remove up to 87% of the toxic indoor air in one single day. They have the ability to remove harmful gases like carbon monoxide as well as cigarette smoke. The in-built filtration system of plants causes the toxicants to be sucked in and they neutralize them. Indoor areas with plants are said to contain half the amount if airborne microbes then the rooms which don’t have plants.
