Abstract


A humidifier including natural components such as mother-in-tongue law's (Sansevieria sp.) and lemongrass (Cymbopogon nardus) extracts is required to control room air quality. The purpose of this study was to assess the chemical composition and anti-fungal and anti-germ capability of Sansevieria sp. and Cymbopogon nardus in a room. The experimental method and One Group Pre-test Post-test Design were utilized in this investigation. To minimize airborne germs, Sansevieria sp. and Cymbopogon nardus extract were used as humidifier modification materials in this case. Concentrations of Sansevieria sp extract of 30%, 40%, and 50% were made available. The data was analyzed using Anovatest.The Anova test results showed that the Sansevieria sp. extracts with concentrations of 30%, 40%, and 50% had p-values greater than 0.05. It signifies that there was no significant or insignificant difference in the concentrations used, hence the extracts of Sansevieria sp and Cymbopogon nardus extracts had the same effective antibacterial potential in this investigation. It was determined that Sansevieria sp and Cymbopogon nardus extract as modified humidifier solution at concentrations of 30%, 40%, and 50% have the same efficacy in decreasing Germ in the room air.
