Hows life…? Enjoying the rain? I’m enjoying the rain with a cup of hot coffee… It’s raining heavily, I’m here to tell one of the important thing which you do in rainy season. Guessing??! Yes…! its about drying your clothes indoor.
Living in a block of apartment with no outdoor space to dry your clothes? or just residing in UK with zero sunny days? whatever the reason, It’s a big ‘NO’ for drying your clothes indoor.
But why ?
Drying your clothes indoor may be turning your house into an unhealthy breeding ground. Wet socks or wet towels in the living room for few hours could actually bad for you.
When you dry your wet laundry indoor, which adds the moisture to the room can lead to the growth of mould and dust mites. Also whole lot of health issues.
A mouldy, damp house can actually trigger asthma in non-asthmatics, but for those with asthma it can trigger or worsen symptoms.
Senior research fellows says…“From a health perspective…many biological agents are found indoors and they usually thrive on dampness and inadequate ventilation. They have found that dampness itself has been a good indicator of risk of asthma and respiratory symptoms. There are other studies that show inhalation of fungal spores…are linked to allergic sensitization and asthma”.
From the above picture you can find out what are the main causes to Asthama. Dustmites and mould are generating from the moist house. So please avoid drying your clothes indoors.
So what to do?
There are simple and effective ways to reduce the moisture in your house:
If you’re cooking remember to turn on the exhaust fan.
And think about where you store your wet coats – put them on the veranda till they dry off.
If it’s sunny dry out your laundry outdoor, also make sure if you use a dryer that it’s vented to the outside.
Keeping your house well ventilated and also warm will help keep mould and dustmites away.
Keep your house warm this rainy season and be healthy…
