After months of the scorching heat of summer, we all desperately wait for the first splash of water, cloudy skies & the air filled with a dewy petrichor. But as long as we look forward to snuggling under the blanket or enjoying a hot cup of tea looking out of the window while it is raining, the season brings some nightmares with it, especially to the interiors & exteriors of our house. We decorate our home with utmost love & care, hence it is also important to maintain it properly.
Below is the checklist to help you keep your home monsoon ready:
Ensuring dry & sturdy walls tops the list of safety measures for monsoons. Opt for waterproof paints to avoid dampness & peeling of the walls.
Waterproof Your Roof
Roofs bear most of the rain. You must check the roof of your apartment for any sort of leakage that can cause damage. If you stay on the top floor of the building make sure there is no leakage from the terrace of your building.
Another risk that you must all insulate yourself from is, of course, electrical malfunctions. Any exposed wiring or sockets may lead to a short circuit and consequently a danger of electrical failure. Make sure that you take care of the basic maintenance.
Check Out The Drains
As we all know, accumulated water or clogged drains can lead to the proliferation of mosquitoes and other disease-bearing germs. It’s a great idea to fix up a date with the plumber to get all your drains cleared, checked, and de-clogged as the rains approach. Nowadays Mumbai Real Estate developers take utmost care of the drainage systems in their new projects to avoid any sort of disease or electrical hazards that can occur during the monsoons.
Protect Your Wooden Furniture
Keep your trendy wooden artifacts away from wet clothes and direct exposure to the rain. Add a new coat of varnish if old and use only a dry cloth for wiping surfaces.
Rugs and Carpet Care
Vacuum your carpets and rugs regularly or else avoid using them during monsoons. If they are uncleaned for long spells they can accumulate bacteria and create an unpleasant odor.
The above tips surely can help you prepare your home for the upcoming monsoon season. If you are planning to move to a new home before monsoons you will find projects in Dahisar
