5 easy ways for a rainproof home

 

1. Watch Out for Molds

  1. Watch out for molds

    A problem that comes along with the heavy rain is molds. It can grow both outdoors and indoors and the alarming thing about molds is that they are almost invisible to the naked eye. It is when the paint starts to discolor and allergies are triggered that you’ll be able to know that there is an infestation within your home. Having molds on your walls does not only cause breakage and unpleasing odors but may trigger allergies and other health problems. To prevent molds from forming, make it a habit to clean your walls, both inside and outside. If there is already a mild case of molds, scrape it off as quickly as possible to prevent further damage. After scraping it off, wipe the walls with a mixture of bleach and water. Not just the mixture acts as a cleaning agent but it also disinfects and prevents any future mold growth.

  2. Check for Cracks and Leaks

2. Check for Cracks and Leaks

The cold and rainy weather draws you nearer to our beds. Indeed, it feels good to tap naps all throughout the day but imagine being awakened by a leak from the ceiling! Not only it is not a great way to be roused from slumber but your bed and pillows will be soaked. To get that cozy sleep, make sure to check for cracks and leaks not only on your ceiling but the same goes with walls, floorings, and drainages. To know if there are leaks, look out for any peeling paint, discolorations, damaged roof tiles, and molds. These are all the effects of cracks and leaks.

3. Protect Doors and Windows

The rain may wear down doors especially those of wood. Doors have a tendency to swell due to water and moisture making them hard to open. To avoid further damage, oil may be applied to affected areas. For doors made of metal, rust is the enemy. Protect metal doors by regularly applying paint. Not only does paint protects your doors from rust but it also helps maintain the aesthetic of your home. 

4. Secure all electrical wirings

Stay safe no matter how strong rain or storm may get. Secure all electric wirings to prevent accidents. Make sure that there are no loose wirings and that water will not be able to penetrate through it’s protective covering. Loose and broken wirings might be the start of an electricity outage or worse, death. Make your homes safer by checking for loose and damaged wirings. Immediately repair all open wirings with electrical tape or silicone covers.

5. Maintain locks to prevent rusting

Gates, windows, and doors all have a metal lock on them. Metals very vulnerable to rust especially when exposed to water. Unfortunately, rain nowadays is not just pure water from condensation but it also contains acid that makes the metal even more prone to rusting. Protect all kinds of locks by applying protective sprays. In cases that rust is already present, use rust removal products such as WD40 spray. It helps break down any form of corrosion.
