Good Reasons To Switch Out Your Office Plants For Artificial Ones
Having a beautiful office with lush plants, trees and some flowers is a very important feature. They add a touch of elegance and give your office a great first impression to your clients. A beautiful floral arrangement in the lobby or a giant tree in the waiting room softens the edges and highlights the décor. There are some benefits of real plants however there is a down side to having real plants in your office.
One of the most obvious down sides to having real plants in your office is of course the cost of maintaining them. Having to water them yourself is sometimes an option if you have a small office but for those with large facilities, you’ll have to hire an outside maintenance crew to come in to water, prune and fertilize the plants and trees. This is ok if you have the money to do this but what most don’t realize is that this also creates an additional security risk to your company. Most services come in after hours and have to have access to every office in the building that needs to be serviced.
Another not so obvious down sides is the fact that small little insects like the moisture in the soil making it an excellent breeding ground for their eggs. This can cause your office to have little bugs flying around the office at certain times of the year. This is only going to cost you extra money to have them eradicated by a pest control company.
If you’re watering the plants on your own be careful not to over water as this may cause staining on the floor or carpet if it leaks out. This is so common and if you move the planters of many office plants you’ll see the damage it causes when they’re over watered.
Over watering causes one more common thing to happen and that’s mold. Mold can form when there is too much moisture in the soil or if you’re in a humid climate. This is not only bad for the plant but it can also trigger allergies and illness in the office to your employees. This is a hidden problem that most never see or think about when they walk by their office plants.
These are the main reasons why many offices are reverting to artificial plants, tree and flowers over real ones. Most people think if you go artificial, you’re losing the quality and realistic appearance. In some cases this may be true specially if you visit your local discount or craft store.
