Prepare your home for the monsoon


The monsoon season evokes both joy and melancholy in us. We are relieved to have some relief from India’s scorching summers, but we are also depressed because of the damage caused by heavy and continuous rain. Seepages, electrical short circuits, and structural moisture are just a few of the catastrophic effects caused by the wet season. But why let such concerns dampen the great mood created by the arrival of the monsoon? Make your home ready to withstand the onslaught of rains with many domestic maintenance recommendations and a domestic coverage plan to stay worry-free.

Here are six home maintenance tips to protect this monsoon season from causing damage to your property.

Examine the exterior form

Before the monsoon arrives, it’s far really beneficial to inspect the outside of the house for any cracks or abnormalities by which water may extra leak in. If rainwater seeps in between the gaps, they grow, creating a bigger problem and the potential to harm your items stored in the house. Prevent mishaps such as a leaky roof or water seeping through walls by using appropriate measures such as wall-putty and covering gaps. Make certain you attempt this well before the monsoon so that the cement or putty has ample time to cure and harden.

Waterproofing and painting

Check the roof, terrace, and balconies for leaks and apply a water-resistant coating for added protection. To ensure clean drainage of accumulated water, the drains must be cleaned clean to provide a clean outflow of the water. This will help to prevent clogs. Ensure that all of your house painting tasks are completed before the arrival of the monsoon. Waterproof paints are ideal for exterior walls because they provide additional protection against water seepage.

Adopt pest-control methods.

During the monsoon season, humidity is high, providing a breeding ground for termites, ants, insects, mosquitoes, and flies. They not only harm your health, but they may also harm the structure. Pest manipulation is a fantastic idea since it provides you with additional protection against pests. For example, you may be able to protect your wood fixtures from termites.

Examine the electrical fittings and connections.

Any electrical connection located outside the house and potentially exposed to rain must be adequately shielded. You may also want to get your electrical fittings examined by an electrician to eliminate the possibility of an electrical shock or short-circuit. Make your house safer by taking simple steps like as properly covering electric equipment and connections.

Get rid of moisture and provide proper air movement.
