Tips to Protect your Home this Monsoon
Its monsoon again and with the raindrops come gloomy days and dark clouds. The wet weather outside makes us crave the warmth and coziness of our homes.
That’s why it is all the more important to keep the inside of your home safe, warm and dry.
Below are a few tips that can help you keep your interiors dry and cozy:
- It is good practice to reduce the number of carpets in the house. Roll them up and cover them with plastics sheets to store them. This keeps them dry. They being highly absorbent can hold a lot of moisture inside, giving the house dampness.
- Best to have light solid colored lace drapes for this season. They let enough light through, don’t absorb much moisture and are much easier to clean.
- It’s not always possible to dry the clothes outside, but waiting for sunlight is a good idea. Drying clothes indoors should be avoided as that can make the house very humid. Tumble-drying them a little extra can help.
- Clothes should not be kept crumpled for long after drying. Ironing them as soon as possible makes it easier to remove the wrinkles and keeps the freshness as well.
- If you have wrought-iron furniture in the house, giving it a coat of anti-rust paint is important. Alternatively you can use non-scented oils to protect them from rusting.
- Similarly if you have wooden furniture, it needs extra polishing to make it last longer and looking new.
- Clothes absorb moisture too and hence its important to keep the cupboards dry to prevent any bacterial growth. Neem leaves or camphor can be used to absorb most of the moisture inside and keep the clothes dry.
Keeping the indoors dry is not only a matter of comfort but also a matter of safety. Too much moisture inside the house can lead to harmful bacterial presence in your home, which can cause a lot of discomfort. So enjoy the rains outside and the warmth inside your home.
