Laundry drying with a dehumidifier

Indoor laundry drying

During the rainy season, drying laundry outside is not an option. Most of us will opt to dry our laundry inside our house. Unfortunately, indoor laundry drying could potentially create more harm to us than we thought. It may seem like a small matter but it creates optimal conditions for the growth of spores and breeding ground for the dust mites especially in a poorly ventilated room. Hence with the presence of a dehumidifier will help combat this issue when drying laundry indoor.

Living in a condominium or apartment is part of today’s lifestyle. Occupants usually do not have laundry drying space and they may need to look into using a dehumidifier to dry their clothes rather than clothes dryer. There is a distinct advantage of this as clothes dried using a dehumidifier do not wrinkle or crease as it is hung out to dry and not tumble dry.

Benefit of using dehumidifier to dry your clothes

1. Prevent the growth of mould and mildew.

Mould and mildew are one of the root causes of many health problems, the most prominent one is allergy reactions, asthma and breathing difficulties. If the place has just been struck with flood it is advisable to get a dehumidifier because the flood water that seeps into the wall or things could potentially increase the humidity level and encourage the reproduction of mould and mildew .

2. Prevent musty smell

A musty smell is the consequence of excess humidity and the cause of mould and mildew to form. These fungi release foul gases which can be absorbed into any fabric present in the area. These could be very damaging to your property and very uncomfortable for the dweller in the room. Placing a dehumidifier in the area can help absorb excess moisture and remove any unwanted smell in the room.

3. Clothes dry up not rough and stiff

Clothes dry up rough and stiff only when they are driver over a heat source, such as a radiator. On the other hand, dehumidifiers work in the opposite way, by using dry air to heat the clothes up to dry. Your clothes actually end up drying softer!
