We are taking the following precautions due to the COVID-19 virus. All of our technicians have masks, glasses, latex gloves and shoe booties if they have to enter your home. Our technicians also have hand sanitizer and disinfectants that they use after every call.
If we are there to do maintenance and we don’t have to come inside your home to get to the equipment, we are asking homeowners to adjust the thermostat for us so we can do the system maintenance without entering the home. We will not be shaking hands and will keep our distance from customers.
Use Houseplants to Increase Your Home's Indoor Air Quality
Houseplants are quite simply one of the most functional ways to decorate the home. They can be used to purify the air we breath, and the very sight of them helps us to de-stress.
In recent years, science has shown what many people have considered a wive’s tale – or simply an exaggeration – that houseplants can have hugely positive effects on general health by improving air quality.
Sufferers of respiratory problems like asthma (currently reaching epidemic proportions) and people in good health alike will benefit by having houseplants in the home.
If you’re a nature enthusiast, living in Northwest Arkansas’ urban sprawl, that will come as good news. Another helpful fact: keeping multiple types of houseplants in the home will provide maximum benefit, clearing away a greater variety of those everyday toxins.
The culprits include toxins such as trichloroethylene, as well as more benzene, formaldehyde and carbon monoxide. These are found in just about every home – in paint removers, rubber, detergents, furniture foam. NASA research has shown that the following houseplants can remove these chemicals with great efficiency:
Bamboo Palm –(Chamaedorea Sefritzii) – One of the best for combating benzene also helpful in humidifying the home.
Dracaena – (Dracaena Deremensis ‘Warneckii’) Removes a number of toxins given off by furniture polish
Used in combination with HEPA and MERV grade filters, the quality of the air you breath can be optimized even further, even saving you from hospital bills in the future. And after all, your health is the ultimate investment.
