Getting ready to sell your Okemos House with a realtor? First, you need to clean your home. Try using household plants! Does your Lansing Michigan house smell musky or old? Need a fresh smell? Many different types of greenery, cactus, and small plants can freshen up an older home.
If you recently remodeled your home then you might be smelling chemicals or toxins from freshly painted walls and other areas. Do you have dogs or cats? Open the windows in the spring and summer to circulate the air and get rid of odors. Whether or not you smoke, you should consider purifying the air in your home. This is essential for Midwest residents in winter when windows are closed and air is trapped in the home.
Have you considered a holistic or organic approach to cleaning the smell in the air? One alternative to achieving better air quality in the home is to purchase household plants and small trees. Going shopping at your local greenhouse can be a fun adventure for parents and kids! Here are 8 tips and suggestions on plants to buy:
Spider Plants known for removing at least 95% of toxic substances in the air.
The Snake Plant uses little light to grow and can easily be placed in bedrooms. This plant is widely known for removing carcinogens associated with plastic and cigarettes.
