As the rains starts showering we feel relieved from the scorching heat of the summer season. But before arrival of the rains our buildings needs to be prepared to avoid any potential damages due to rain waters. Below are a few tips for protecting your building during rainy season.

  1. First of all thoroughly check the roof for any cracks. If any crack is found repair it immediately. After repair, apply a coating of waterproofing compound over the roof.
  2. Similarly check and ensure, the exterior plaster and walls does not have any crack, otherwise rain water will seep into the walls causing dampness.
  3. Clean and clear all the rain water pipes and gutters for ensuring smooth flow of rain water from roof. Also clean them once in a frequently during the entire rainy season.
  4. Ensure that all the areas in the building are well ventilated by fresh air, because humid airs can cause dampness which is not good for health.
  5. Before the rainy season starts, ensure that any electrical fixture and equipment does not come in contact with water due to seepage or dampness or any other reason during or after rain.
  6. The wooden doors normally swell during the rainy season due to the moisture in the atmosphere. If such things happen then remove the door, tighten all the hinges and refix it after varnishing, painting or applying sandpaper on the part of the door which gets stuck to the frame.
  7. Paint all the grills and iron doors as they tend to get rusted during rainy season.
  8. Get a regular pest check-up done in order to restrict the termite, ant and any other pest growth.

Enjoy the rainy season without any worry!!
