Your business might soon be adding indoor plants to the list of necessary safety equipment needed around the office. New research presented at a meeting of the American Chemical Society found that some common houseplants can absorb volatile organic compounds, which are potentially harmful materials found in things like paint, furniture, dry cleaning and even nail polish remover.
Researchers now want to take plants that clean the air into nail salons for further testing. So it seems possible that some of the plants tested could someday replace the expensive ventilation equipment that nail salons and similar businesses currently have to use.
