Clay provides fresh air

Frischlufteffekt bei Lehmputz

In a room that is plastered with clay, you always have the feeling that it is freshly ventilated. This feeling of fresh air is due to two properties that clay brings with it:

  • Clay can absorb and store pollutants and odorous substances from the air, and some of the damaged molecules are even converted. In industry, loam is even used as a natural cleaning agent for waste water and dirt. This property ensures "clean" air.
  • Clay can ionize the air. In the process, the air is enriched with negatively charged ions - just like during a thunderstorm. The effect is the same as after a thunderstorm - the air appears cleaner, clearer and fresher than before the storm, although, more precisely, it was already good before. This property of ionization provides "fresh" air.
