Use Plants to Improve Common Area IAQ

Take advantage of interior landscaping to do more than just improve the aesthetic of your community’s common areas. Interior landscaping improves indoor air quality (IAQ) and can even lower your energy costs. Plants filter air by absorbing pollutants and they produce oxygen—which is especially helpful in sealed, energy-efficient buildings that have less exchange of fresh outdoor air for stale indoor air. Plants also maintain an appropriate humidity level, keeping it lower than the level at which it can cause mold and bacteria to grow. You can realize cost savings benefits, too.
