|Ammonia||Hair Color, Perm Systems, Window Cleaners, Floor Waxes||Exposure to high concentrations can result in blindeness, lung failure, and respitory shut down|
|Benzene||Hair Color, Plastics, Pesticides, Detergents, Synthetic Fibres||Immune system damage: changing blood levels of antibodies causing the loss of white blood cells|
Spider Plant:The first air purifying plant is a Spider Plant. This plant is the best option for busy salon owners... Spider plants prefer bright light and enjoy hot indirect sunlight. However, they will grow in conditions ranging from semi-shaded to partial direct sun. Spider plant babies are the offshoots (also called spiderettes or plantlets) that grow out from the main plant. These spiderettes can be propagated and grown for more beautiful additions to your space. This plant helps detoxify the air of formaldehyde.
Snake Plant: Don’t have a green thumb? You will NEVER kill a Snake Plant. It’s hands down one of the easiest plants to have around, as it is extremely low maintenance and prefers dry conditions and light sun (but it’s not picky). It’s colouring is rich and deep- perfect for making a statement in your space while cleansing the air of benzene and formaldehyde.
Peace Lily:This elegant plant gives off a fresh floral scent and is a summer bloomer... It tends to thrive in shaded areas, in evenly moist and well drained soil. This beauty cleanses the air of ammonia, benzene and formaldehyde. Placing a Peace Lily in each room of a salon will create a soft train of scent, and your clients will love it.
Boston Fern:The Boston Fern is a wonderful option for an air purifying plant. Place this fluffy air purifier in an area that is cool with indirect light and high humidity. Try to keep the ferns' soil nice and moist, and once a month give it a good soaking to keep it happy. This plant needs slightly more attention than your average house plant, but definitely a lovely addition to your space. The Boston Fern filters the air of formaldehyde and xylene.
Not only will these air purifiers help out your salons air quality, they’ll make the salon look cute too! The salons that are filled with more plans tend to be more inviting, and set the tone of relaxation. Be aesthetic while cleaning the air, and add some plants to your space!
