Monsoon is almost here and this season is truly a joyful one. Whether it is the fragrance of wet Earth or the hot cup of tea and unending talks with your loved ones, the season has got something in store for each and every one of us.
But, sometimes due to insufficient planning, the heavy rains may damage your home. Such a killjoy! Right?
Well, Hallmark is always here to help you and hence today we bring to you a handy set of tips to get your home monsoon ready!
- Waterproofing is the way!
The first step is obviously to protect your home from the water that would cause external harm. Check for leakages on the roof, terrace and balcony and get them fixed. Then, you may add a coat of waterproof layer for extra protection. Also, if you are planning to get your home painted, make sure to wrap it up before the beginning of the showers. Don’t push it until the last minute! Particularly for the external walls, waterproof paints are the best options.
- Pest Control to the rescue!
High humidity is the breeding ground for mosquitoes, termites, insects and flies. These pests are harmful to the health, not just of people but that of the building too! For example, the termites can ruin your furniture and we definitely don’t want that to happen to your precious furniture, right? Hence, prior to monsoon, add pest-control to your checklist.
- Unchecked drains are a disaster!
Clogged drains lead to accumulation of dirty water which in turn leads to breeding germs which in turn leads to health and sanitation risks. To avoid all of that, reach out to your plumber and get all the drains checked, cleared and de-clogged as the rains approach.
- Don’t skip the Electrical Fittings!
If the insulation is not proper, any electrical fitting outside the home is a ticking bomb. Hence, get your electrician on board and ensure that every connection and fitting is properly covered to avoid any kind of mishap. This is applicable to all the electrical connections inside and outside the home. Don’t skip any!
- Popper Ventilation: Very important!
With monsoon, comes the dampness and the acrid smell within the house. Some things you can do to keep your house fresh as daisies are regular cleaning, room fresheners, dehumidifiers, fresh flowers etc. Rolling up the carpets for this season is also a great idea as it holds immense moisture and adds to the internal humidity. The most important thing is to ensure that there is optimum cross-ventilation of air within the house.
