Indoor Air Quality

Here at Foliage Design Systems Atlanta, we’re well aware that our work is about much more than building a pleasing indoor area, although that is certainly a major reason why people pay for our services. The last few weeks of summer are a prime time to finalize the plan on your interior garden designs before the chill of winter sets in.

We’ve talked about the health benefits of indoor plants on our blog in recent weeks. Take a look at this article published by the Milwaukee Wisconsin Journal Sentinel to learn more about ways in which maintaining healthy air quality can provide positive impacts to your own health and the well-being of others.

Dust and other microscopic pollutants can set the stage for a long list of poor health conditions. Indoor plants do a great job of collecting these contaminants from the air, keeping them from entering the lungs of residents or office workers. Improving the air ventilation within these spaces can also help.

The freshness of indoor air can also greatly impact the productivity of a person, making indoor gardens a major interest among many employers. The above article cites a study from the National Institutes of Health, which found that reducing air pollution alone could improve worker productivity by almost 10 percent. Potted plants or even ionizing air fresheners can do a great deal in improving work performance and may even help reduce employee turnover in many facilities.

You could even reduce your energy bills by keeping plants in your home or office. Reducing the level of indoor air pollutants can keep your HVAC system working properly and prevent the filter from becoming clogged, which leads to the whole system having to work harder to perform the same job. While not necessarily a health benefit, this is certainly desirable among homeowners and employers.

Throughout the metropolis of Atlanta, many people are walking into spaces that offer both fresh air as well as a sense of calm. Call Foliage Design Systems Atlanta to learn more about our services and how we can build a verdant living space within your property today.
