IAQ By The Numbers
In 1989, NASA tested houseplants’ ability to clean the air.
After 24 hours, researchers found the plants had removed 10-70% of VOCs in the chambers.
There are over 1,200 known volatile organic compounds.
However, in 2019 a team of researchers replicated the study in a residential environment.
Researchers found that you may need as many as 10-1000 plants per square meter to make a difference in your home’s air quality.
