The southwest monsoon season (June-September) is upon us, it’s time to make sure you’ve done your bit to enliven your home in the dull monsoon season. We all love to relish the rain, sitting on a balcony and sipping our hot tea/coffee. But we often forget to check if our home is monsoon ready. From the dirty floors to moist furniture and clothes, everything just seems extremely messy from the first rain itself. It’s not too late to keep your home dry and damp-free, here is a list of things you could do to prep your house from the thick black clouds pouring those heavy showers on us.
Deck up your home
Small, simple yet elegant changes in the decor can make your home monsoon ready. Replace your dark & dull curtains with sheer ones that bring in the light. Bright cheerful colors like coral, yellow, blue and green are perfect for your cushions and bed sheets for the melancholy the weather leaves you with. Heavy drapes are to be avoided during monsoon since they take ages to dry off, once wet. Choose light fabrics like Cotton, Georgette, and Chiffon to eradicate the musty smell and leave your home free from humid. Cotton curtains even facilitate proper ventilation. Keep your home perky and peppy with rugs of bright colors as light colors show dirt easily. If you’re on the hunt for a new home, choose the one that lets in most light into your rooms. At Haritha Homes you’ll find your perfect property in thrissur.
Keep it clean
First of all, there is no stain-proof floor. But that doesn’t mean there is no way to keep your tiles spotless. Place a doormat at the entrance and bring the “No shoes beyond the door” rule into action. Keep a bucket ready beside your doormat so that your family members and visitors can keep their wet umbrellas and rain coats in it. Cleaning your home and keeping it cleaned is the toughest task during monsoon, but regular cleaning using anti-bacterial cleaners and the use of scented candles to avoid the damp moist smell can help your home smell & feel fresh. Cleaning your home isn’t enough, you need to make sure your surroundings are clean as well. Stagnant water in puddles, coolers, pots or vessels can be a breeding ground for mosquitoes and can cause deadly diseases like malaria and dengue.

Check your roof, walls and drainage system
Low-quality raw materials used on construction can cause leaks in roofs and walls. Take a thorough inspection of your walls and roof for any kind of leakages and cracks. Get the cracks filled with white cement and fill the pores with wall putty. Keep a tab on your drainage system, ensure they are clean and without clogging and leakage. If there are rusted or broken drain pipes, replace them immediately with new ones. Call a plumber to check the rainwater pipes, balcony and terrace pipes.
