EXTRA CARE YOUR HOMES NEED THIS MONSOON SEASON

Posted by Samni Dhiman on

GET YOUR HOME MONSOON READY

We eagerly await the monsoon's arrival after the oppressive heat of the summer. The cloudy skies, breezy conditions, and pitter-pattering rain all have such an uplifting effect. Enjoying that extra cup of tea with pakoras or garam samosas, these are really our favourite monsoon memories.

But the monsoon does take a toll on the upkeep of your home. There’s added moisture and that gives rise to high bacterial counts. Here are top tips to help you care for your home.

We've listed the top 10 pieces of advice to help you to extra care for home during monsoon season.

TIPS TO PREPARE YOUR HOME FOR MONSOON

Get your roof ready for the rains

To prevent costly problems that might escalate into immense cost, inspect your roof twice a year. A waterproof coating can be added in the event of any cracks. To ensure that rainwater from the roof flows smoothly, periodically clean the rainwater pipes. Also, immediately replace any rusted or broken drain pipes by contacting a plumber.

Leave no proxy ponds behind

Don't let water collect in buckets on your balcony or veranda. Mosquitoes and other insects use them as breeding grounds. Get your drains cleaned as a precaution so that rain debris doesn't clog them.

Greenery Check

Trees may fall during periods of heavy rain, which could cause damage and injury. Check that there are no trees close to your home that could harm you, your house, or even your parked car. Call the local municipality to trim any wayward branches.

Keep the mould away

Take care to dry wipe your taps and showers after cleaning them with the plant-based cleaners if you don't like this grey-green addition. Additionally, you need to roll up your expensive rugs and carpets. Make sure there are no damp patches before you store them.

Clean your shoes especially if they have gotten wet. Place a shoe stand outside the house and get everyone into the discipline of removing footwear before entering the home.

 

Goodbye Bacteria

You can’t depend on the sun to dry your clothes and linens during the rainy season, but you also cannot afford to skip washing. Damp clothes fester unwanted fungi and bacteria. Consequently, invest in indoor drying racks and keep your washing machines active.

Along with your laundry detergent, we recommend using fabric conditioner alongside to get rid of that damp smell in your clothes and linen.

 

Furniture care

Furniture and wooden surfaces, such as cupboards and railings, are susceptible to musty odours and even damage from termite or fungus infection. To keep clothing and other valuables dry inside cabinets and closets, place camphor balls, neem leaves, or cloves. Throughout the monsoon season, make sure to regularly vacuum or clean them with dry clothes.

 

 

Get rid of the bad rainy smell

The rain creates humid, rank air that stinks up our house. Ventilate rooms frequently, add a few drops of essential oil to your daily mopping routine and light home fragrances to keep the rooms odour-free. You could also invest in a non CFC, non propellant based air freshener.

 

Disinfect the floor

The rainy season's climate is very damp and humid, which is perfect for the development of germs and bacteria. Maintaining a clean home by using the right disinfectant is one way to get rid of germs. Choose natural disinfectants or products with tea tree oil or lemongrass oil to provide natural anti-bacterial protection. This will keep your floors germ-free and family healthier and less prone to sickness.

 

Keep your home dry

The floors are usually wet during the rainy season. It's important to maintain a dry interior in your home since wet floors attract more mud, dust, and dirt. You may combat this issue by maintaining a suitable ventilation system and opening your windows once it stops raining.

Lastly, don't let monsoons dampen the soul of your home. Keep your home safe during the monsoon season by taking the necessary precautions.
