DRYING wet clothes inside could be detrimental for your health.

If you live in the city, sometime you have no choice but to dry your clothes inside.

Even those in the UK who do have an outdoor space have rare sun-filled days to get drying done.

However, drying clothes inside could be causing long-term health problems, new research has revealed.

The Asthma Society of Ireland have issued a warning saying: “Moist environments encourage the growth of mould which can release ‘seeds’ called spores.”

Pheena Kenny from the society added: “The spores can cause allergic reactions in some people. Mould and fungal spores are often invisible to the naked eye.

“Normally, when people breathe in these spores, their immune system helps get rid of them by coughing or sneezing. If you aren’t sensitive to mould, you may never even experience a reaction.

“But for some people with asthma who are sensitive to mould spores, it can act as a trigger, causing asthma symptoms to get worse.”

Warning Signs of Lung Disease

A nagging cough or slight wheeze may barely register in the course of our busy days, but it's critically important to pay attention to even mild symptoms.

Wheezing: Noisy breathing or wheezing is a sign that something unusual is blocking your lungs' airways or making them too narrow.

Shortness of breath: It's not normal to experience shortness of breath that doesn't go away after exercising, or that you have after little or no exertion. Labored or difficult breathing—the feeling that it is hard to breathe in out—is also a warning
Coughing up blood: If you are coughing up blood, it may be coming from your lungs or upper respiratory tract. Wherever it's coming from, it signals a health problem.
Chronic mucus production: Mucus, also called sputum or phlegm, is produced by the airways as a defense against infections or irritants. If your mucus production has lasted a month or longer, this could indicate lung disease.

Pheena explained that Aspergillus fumigatus can cause serious lung infections – and it’s not just asthma sufferers who are vulnerable.

The most vulnerable are babies, elderly and children.

People with weak immune systems and eczema sufferers have also been advised to hang wet clothes outside.

Pheena added that the January, February, August and September are the months of the year where this is most persistent.

She said the best thing to do is to hang your washing outside whenever possible, “or in a tumble dryer in a well-ventilated indoor space away from bedrooms and living areas.

“Mould and mildew can grow in damp and humid places, such as bathrooms, kitchens and basements.”
