Finally, the most awaited rainy season is here in Karachi! During this season we enjoy our garam chai along with hot pakoras and samosas. But before that watch out for these 5 issues which are expected to arise at home with the sudden heavy downpours.
- REPAIR YOUR ROOF
The first thing that needs to be checked and repaired immediately is the roof of your house. So make sure you call your plumber and get your roof thoroughly checked and fixed. You do not want water patches to appear on your beloved ceiling thereby giving you sleepless nights.
- CHECK YOUR DRAINAGE SYSTEM
Before the season of rain hits, make sure you proactively check your home’s drainage system. It is important that rain gutters are installed in the opposite direction of your house and have a proper outlet. This will ensure that water will not enter your house. Also ensure that the water from your drains do not get inside your house.
- USE THE RIGHT PAINT
Another way to keep your home dry during the Monsoon season is painting your homes at least once in every five years. Look for the best Paints in the market from the various paint brands available. Be careful that when the exterior walls become wet due to the rain, cracks appear and water seepage issues arise in homes.
- PREVENT INSECTS
Your homes should not be raining insects during the monsoon season. So make sure you get your homes fumigated for termites and other insects. If you have wooden flooring in your homes, you need to be extra careful. Remember, prevention is always better than cure, so it is strongly advised to keep an eye out for these critters before they affect you and your home!
- SAY ‘NO’ TO MOISTURE
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 to use carpets in your homes. Keep your floors free from big rugs. Try and 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. Be safe and enjoy the wonderful monsoon season!
