Homeowners have been using houseplants to add comfort and color to their homes for years. It is no coincidence that beautiful leafy green plants are featured in many of the most colorful paintings in history. But does plants provides benefits other than simple aesthetic appeal? Do they really clean the air?

Plants are truly advantageous to have in your home. While one plant isn’t a good purifier at removing toxins from your home, filling larger spaces with potted plants (such as snake plants or peace lilies) can help reduce harmful chemicals, add more oxygen, and allow you to generally breathe better.

As long as your houseplants are healthy, they’ll keep removing harmful chemicals from your home’s environment, even at a slower rate than some of the best purifying machines around.
