The humidity level in the UK on Thursday Nov 22 at 11:00 am ranged from 82% up to 90%. With this year's continuous rain, the ground is saturated with water and the air humidity is high.
With the current winds almost all the leaves have now fallen from the trees. All of this vegetation is now lying on the soggy ground, decaying and growing mouldy.
As the weather is getting colder we are closing up our houses and turning on the central heating. The result is that the moisture laiden air from showers and cooking is forming condensation on cool walls and windows and adding to the humidity from the outdoor air.
Moulds both outside and inside are releasing spores that are not only irritating but can also cause allergic symptoms and illness. Symptoms can include asthma, allergic rhinitis, bronchitis, sneezing, runny nose, congestion, eustachian tube obstruction, itching of the nose or eyes, fatigue, weakness and even depression.
