    If you don’t want your roof leaking during monsoon, use high-quality waterproof paint for the exteriors as well as interiors of your house. It’s one of the first things you can do to protect your home in the monsoon. Moreover, a good waterproofing job ensures there are no cracks in the ceiling and walls or any damp spots on the wall surface. Therefore, choose trusted brands for the waterproof painting job to get the best results.

  2. Store away the carpets

    Laying down carpets during monsoon is not the best idea. Carpets are made of certain fabrics which absorb moisture. This, in turn, causes the carpet to become smelly. So, roll-up all the carpets in your house this monsoon, pack them up in dry sheets and store them away in a dry place.

  3. Avoid termite infestation

    This is probably one of the most important monsoon safety tips that you must adhere to. A moist, humid climate is the perfect place for termites to set up their home. Therefore, before there is a termite infestation in your house, keep a tab on all the wooden furniture and floorings and make sure all of them are polished. Clean your wooden cupboards, dining table, and desks regularly. To prevent termites you can even use some natural methods like leaving camphor, neem leaves, and cloves inside the furniture and in the corners of your house.

  4. Keep electrical fittings in good condition

    There’s always a possibility of short circuit or loose wires catching fire but the risk increases in the monsoon. So, always make sure the electrical fittings in your house are in good condition. If you’re good with electrical work you can do it yourself or get some help in fixing or maintaining the condition of the switches, electrical boards, appliances, wires, etc. in your house. Make sure there are no loose or exposed wires in the house as it can be especially dangerous during monsoon.

  5. Avoid accumulation of water near your house

    As you must already know, accumulated stagnant water acts as a breeding ground for various insects and mosquitoes. Therefore, check for any clogged pipes or cracks and get them fixed immediately before the rains pour down on us. Do not allow water to be collected inside or around the house during the rainy season.
