Answer: high humidity is responsible for many allergies and respiratory diseases.

A high humidity promotes the proliferation of molds and mites. However, the spores as well as the toxins produced by these molds, trigger allergies and respiratory irritations. We must also not forget the droppings of dust mites (containing allergens) and the toxic fumes produced by certain materials attacked by humidity, which also cause respiratory allergies. Respiratory allergies can lead to chronic allergic rhinitis or asthma. Rhinitis manifests as runny nose, conjunctivitis, chronic headache, sneezing, coughing, and severe fatigue. It frequently appears in damp, poorly ventilated homes. Asthma is manifested by a strong respiratory discomfort and the impression of suffocation. 20% of French people suffer from it today. It is therefore necessary to fight against humidity in homes. You too, send us your brico question
