How to Prepare Your Home for the Rainy Season

Jun 22, 2020 | Home & Living | 23 comments

Every year, summer is followed by the rainy season when the weather remains extremely humid. Any common house owner experiences different types of problems during this monsoon; like a leaking roof, clogged gutter, and damp walls due to heavy rainfall. Hence, certain precautionary measures can ensure a safe and comfortable life at home even during torrential rain and strong winds during the monsoon.

Check the condition of the roof.

The roof of an old house may develop cracks and crevices, through which rainwater will seep inside. So the house owner should check the roof before every monsoon, to find if there is any scope of leakage. Moreover, the homeowner needs to check for any missing or loosely fitted tile on the rooftop, which can cause water leaking in during heavy rains. He should also inspect the chimney emerging from the roof surface, to spot any sign of corrosion. All these roof problems should be urgently repaired to stop leakage during the rainy season.

Clean the gutters of the home.

The gutters are designed to carry out the accumulated rainwater away from home. So it is essential to clean the gutters before monsoon, to keep the water flow free from all obstacles. If the gutter is clogged, then there is a high possibility of having a waterlogged backyard during heavy rainfall. Most commonly, people force out all debris from gutters with the help of a garden hose, to clean this sewage passage.

Get the basement examined.

In the case of a flood; the basement of a house is worst hit with ankle-deep or even knee-deep water all over the floor. Hence, it is best to hire a professional for checking the condition of the basement and do the necessary repairing work before the rainy season. If there is mold or mildew in the basement walls, it proves the excessive dampness in that place and needs to be addressed immediately. Any fault in the electrical line of the basement should be repaired as well.

Seal all door and window frames.

During heavy rainfall, water can seep in through the doors and windows even if they are all shut off. Sometimes, there may be a little gap between two panels of a door or window. Through which water can enter the house and wet the furnishings. So the house owner should make sure that all doors and windows can be closed tightly. He needs to seal all the gaps between the frames. With solid foam tape or any kind of sealant used for weather-stripping.

Moreover, all wooden furniture should be moved to drier places where these items will not be affected by rainwater or dampness.

    true po,lalo na ngayong tag ulan na, usually ang pinakaproblem namin is yung roof, kaya naman we make sure na early these we check it all already and have them repair. Even i prepared some big plastics too for appliances like television especially cause were afraid if ever the heavy rain comes it is the one who will damage immediately if the rain leaks from the window.
