The three main household toxins of concern are:

  • benzene
  • formaldahyde
  • trichloroethylene

These carcinogenic chemicals are used in the manufacturing of synthetic substances and materials and are off-gased from new materials for some time (up to several years, depending on the material of product in question).

Benzene can also be emitted from gas ranges during use, making some types of houseplants below great for use in the kitchen.

The quality of the air in our homes is not easy to read—a house can smell great but still be full of benzene or xylene. Some harmful chemical compounds have no odor, and some actually smell good.

Indoor air is usually much more polluted than outdoor air, because it’s concentrated in a small space. An easy way to clean the air in your home is with houseplants.
