With the arrival of cold autumn days and the rain, many are forced freshly washed laundry to dry indoors. However, such a solution, experts warn, can cause health problems.
In many house holdings due to drying clothes indoors, concentration of moisture rises up to 30 percent. Such high levels of moisture are ideal for the development of mites which leads to reduction in air quality. People staying in these rooms can develop sensitivity to various allergic diseases.
According to research conducted in 100 homes in 2011 showed that 87 percent of households in winter dry clothes in closed rooms, while two-thirds put her clothes near radiators.
People are trying to make their homes more energy efficient, but forget the ventilation, said Professor Colin Porteous.
Professor Richards also says that excess moisture creates conditions for mold growth, which can be visible in several months.
