Putting our clothes on the radiator to dry – we have all done it at some time or another, but did you know this could lead to mould and fungus in your home if it is done on a regular basis?
According to BBC News, Medical experts in Manchester are warning people about the dangers of mould growth which can be found in homes when clothes are being dried out on a radiator.
It may not seem like a big problem but when wet clothes begin to dry, the moisture evaporates into the air which could lead to condensation if a window is not open to let the damp air escape. After a period of time, this moisture will start to collect and can cause walls to become damp, therefore leading to the possibility of mould growth.
This could then lead to health problems, especially for those with asthma and breathing problems as well as young children and the elderly.
