I'm thinking lot's of plants outside to keep the smoke from getting in?
I'm guessing you'd need a *lot* of indoor plants, the right kind for the substances you're most worried about, but they actually use oxygen at night went not photosynthesizing - so too many and you'll need more air exchange which will allow more smoke in?
Very interesting question, and I suspect the answer is very complicated. Is it worth posting the articles you read - or at least a precis?
I dont think they help enough.
We had fires in Victoria, Australia for months last summer and some towns did not have clear air for a long time, perhaps 6-8 weeks from memory.
The health issues that arose were startling, including unborn babes being effected.
So if you can do something worthwhile it will help.
And from this site the special words are these;
Air purifiers with a high efficiency particle air (HEPA) filter are able to reduce the number of fine particles indoors.
To work well, the air purifier must be matched to the size of the room it is in and the room must be well sealed.
Humidifiers, negative ion generators and odour absorbers do not remove fine particles in bushfire smoke .protect yourself from bushfire smoke

I mean the NASA studies on indoor air quality houseplants I'd wonder why more folk don't have more plants. Whether or not it's filled to the brim with plants, it's def not going to hurt anything to have a few spider plants in ones room. I'm not going to not breathe what it provides. I think houseplants help with house smells too.
I don't want dark skies like last year for smoke. We've got an air purifier now, it's helping our faces now for sure.
