by Natasha Manual Digital Marketing Specialist

Monsoon always renews your attachment to Mother Nature. However, there is a cost attached to your happiness. The rainy season often causes damages to your house. The roof and the walls get affected the most. The damp air also damages on your furniture and accessories. As a homeowner, you must give attention to many key points to prepare your home for the rainy season and prevent damages. Here are a few tips for you to make your house monsoon ready.

Get the roof of your house repaired 

Inspect the roof for any crack and fix the same appropriately. Consider applying a coat of waterproof paint. Clean all rainwater drain pipes. Get a plumber or one of the best home renovation contractors to inspect and replace all rusted and broken drain pipes.

Avoid waterlogging

Perform a thorough check and make sure that there are no pools and puddles in the garden, drains, and sewers around your house. These areas are breeding grounds for mosquitoes which spread diseases such as Cholera, Dengue, and Malaria.

Paint the walls

It is important to get the walls painted in the right manner before the monsoon sets in. Choose the right paint to prevent seepage of rainwater through the walls. Use waterproof paints and add a water sealant so that it forms a protective layer on the walls. Consult with a house renovation contractor, if required.

Check the greenery 

Heavy rains often increase the risk of trees falling. This can cause damages to the building and injuries to the occupants. Ensure that the trees around your house do not pose any hazard to your home, you, or your parked car. Cut off loose branches, assess the chances of trees getting uprooted, and contact the concerned government officials if you anticipate any risk.

Check the doors and windows

If there are metal-framed windows and doors, repaint them to prevent rainwater seepage and rusting. Wooden windows and doors often swell up during the rainy season. If you are planning home renovation in West Fargo, it is best that you call a carpenter to get the doors and windows fixed properly.

Clear your garage

Water often seeps into your garage during rains and causes damages to not only your car but also other things that you have stored there. Make sure that your garage is clean. Consider arranging a temporary garage to keep your car safe during the monsoon. You can also consider sealing your garage using some adhesive tapes or by stuffing plastic into the edges. This prevents water seepage.

These are just a few important tips. A lot more has to be done to make your home monsoon ready and prevent damages.
