6 Crazy Ways How Humid is Slowly Harming You

Singapore ranks No. 2 Most Humid Country in the World, behind only Maldives, who is ranked No. 1.

And it's not always a good thing... 

Here are 6 main ways how the humidity is harmful to you and your family.

  1. Health Concerns:

    • Respiratory Problems: High humidity can exacerbate respiratory conditions such as asthma, bronchitis, and allergies. Moist conditions promote the growth of mold and mildew, which release spores that can be harmful when inhaled.
    • Skin Issues: Damp conditions can lead to fungal skin infections, and can also cause skin to feel clammy and uncomfortable. Conditions like athlete's foot and jock itch are more common in humid conditions.
    • Heat-Related Illnesses: High humidity affects the body's ability to cool itself, increasing the risk of heat exhaustion and heat stroke.

  2. Home Damage:

    • Mold and Mildew: Humid environments are breeding grounds for mold and mildew, which can damage walls, ceilings, furniture, and even clothing.
    • Warped Wood: Excess moisture can cause wooden furniture, floors, and structures to warp.
    • Peeling Wallpaper and Paint: Humidity can cause wallpaper and paint to bubble or peel off.
    • Infestations: Pests like cockroaches and dust mites thrive in humid conditions.

  3. Comfort:

    • Unpleasant Environment: High humidity can make interiors feel stuffy and uncomfortable. Clothes might feel perpetually damp, and sleeping can become difficult.
    • Persistent Odors: Damp environments often have a musty smell due to mold and mildew.
    • Sticky Feeling: High humidity can leave a person feeling sweaty and sticky, even after they've taken a shower.

  4. Economic Impact:

    • Increased Energy Costs: High indoor humidity can make air conditioning units work harder to cool down interiors, leading to increased energy bills.
    • Repair Costs: Damages to home interiors, exteriors, and personal belongings due to mold and moisture can lead to significant repair and replacement costs.

  5. Valuable Items at Risk:

    • Damage to Electronics: Moist conditions can damage electronic equipment, leading to malfunctions or complete failure.
    • Books and Documents: Humidity can warp pages, activate mold growth, and even cause ink to blur.
    • Clothing Damage: Clothes, especially those stored for a long time, can get damaged by mold or can acquire a musty smell.

  6. Decreased Property Value: Homes that have suffered from moisture-related damages can see a decrease in their market value.
