Get Your Home Monsoon Ready | Sunanda Global

Although the monsoon is a highly anticipated season, it can pose many threats to your home. With your home being exposed to heavy rainfall, it is important to keep an eye out for possible problems in the waterproofing of the house. The rainfall can cause damage to your home, the roof, or the terrace, and the water will eventually seep into your walls, columns, and beams. This can cause damage to your electrical appliances as well. 

In this article, we will give solutions that will help you tackle the monsoon season with ease. 

Sunanda Global’s Solutions for Monsoon-Ready Home

Inspect Signs of Leakage

The first step towards a monsoon-ready home is a thorough inspection. 

  • Look for signs of water damage such as stains or discoloration, which appear as dark patches or streaks on ceilings, walls, or around windows and doors, indicating potential leaks. 
  • Cracks in walls or ceilings can also be a concern, as fine cracks may widen with water seepage, leading to structural issues. Additionally, flaking paint, especially near exterior walls, can result from moisture causing the paint to peel or bubble. 
  • Musty odors are another sign, as a damp smell often indicates mold or mildew growth due to excess moisture.

Get Waterproofing Done

Address any leaks promptly to prevent further water damage. Sunanda Global’s expert technicians provide effective waterproofing solutions for various areas. 

  • For rooftops, we offer a variety of waterproofing membranes and coatings such as POLYALK WP to seal your roof and prevent leaks. 
  • Our treatments for exterior walls with products like POLYFILL AR and  SUNACE create a protective barrier against monsoon rains. 
  • Our specialized kitchen and bathroom waterproofing will prevent water seepage and protect against mold growth.

Dehumidification

Excess humidity during the monsoon can create a breeding ground for mold and mildew. Dehumidification solutions will control moisture levels, reducing excess moisture in the air to prevent condensation and dampness. This not only improves indoor air quality but also helps alleviate allergy and respiratory problems triggered by high humidity. Additionally, controlling moisture safeguards furniture, electronics, and other possessions from warping or damage.

Drainage Checks

Proper drainage is crucial to prevent waterlogging and seepage. It is important to clean the clogged drains and ensure rainwater flows freely away from your home to prevent foundation problems. Also do not forget to check gutters and downspouts, providing regular cleaning and maintenance to ensure proper water channeling away from the building, preventing potential water damage.

Protect Wooden Furniture and Electrical Appliances

Monsoonal moisture can damage wooden furniture and increase the risk of electrical issues. It helps if you move furniture away from exterior walls to minimize the risk of moisture damage. For furniture that cannot be moved, consider using waterproof covers to shield them from moisture. Additionally, having a qualified electrician inspect your wiring and electrical appliances ensures monsoon safety, reducing the risk of electrical problems caused by increased moisture levels.
