How to take care of your homes during Monsoon

Monsoon is here and raindrops have been pouring in your city for quite some time now. During the season of sudden downpours not only do you need to carry an umbrella at all times but you also need to take good care of your health. Wait, did you forget something? How about protecting your homes? Check out some interesting tips to keep your homes dry and safe when it’s raining cats and dogs outside.

The first and foremost thing that needs to be repaired is the roof of your house. Make sure you call your plumber and get your roof thoroughly checked before Monsoon arrives. You do not want water patches to appear on your ceiling and give you nightmares after the first spell of rain itself.

Before the season of rains hits your city, make sure you check your drainage system. Make sure that the rain gutters are installed in the opposite direction of your house and have a proper outlet. This way water will not enter your house. Also ensure that the water from your drains do not get inside your house.

Another way to keep your home dry during the Monsoon season is painting your homes at least once in every five years. When the exterior of the walls become wet due to the rains, cracks result in water seeping into one’s homes.

Before the rainy season comes in, make sure that you get those cracks filled in your walls before Monsoon. You don’t want your homes to be filled with Monsoon rains after all. Also, make sure you get your homes tested for termites. If you have wooden flooring in your homes, you need to be extra careful during Monsoon.

When it rains, wooden floors and doors absorb more moisture, you can apply wax to it and prevent that extra moisture. During Monsoon, you should try not using carpets in your homes. Keep your floors free from bigger rugs. Use bamboo or rubber mats that can absorb water easily instead of the ones made with cloth.

These few tips will help you enjoy a clean, dry and disease free home. Happy Monsoon!
