Raincoats for Homes – Fix it with Dr.Fixit

Fashion Features | August 28, 2016 | By

Rains are pleasant and the fragrance of the wet mud is almost intoxicating. The lush green fields and clean air after a monsoon shower rejuvenate our souls, but, if any of you are home owners you will be worried about dampness on your walls due to water seepages during monsoons.

In this article, I will talk about home care, especially through waterproofing. This may seem an off-beat topic for a fashion blogger to choose, but last monsoon my rooms walls were completely destroyed due to water leakages. My laptop, my clothes and my very dear red boots were almost ruined by the water. I had to chase my house owner to get the walls fixed since the local plumbers couldn’t identify the cause of water leaks. We had to call specialists and within a few minutes of inspection they spotted the cracks in the roof and recommended waterproofing the terrace as solutions.image1

I learnt that a priority of most Indian home buyers is on beautifying the house rather than concentrating on the crucial essentials such as waterproofing. Vast majority still consider waterproofing an unnecessary financial burden that can be avoided but really it is a preventive option to thwart future damage to homes, enhance the longevity of houses and avoid repair costs.

This being said I read online that roof, wall and bathroom leaks are the most common issues with home constructions and these issues are aggravated in humid regions. The same monsoon that brings in the freshness of wet mud, can also cause wreck due to dripping ceilings and mold infestations. For a home owner that has a family or plans to have a baby, this is as a health concern. You could develop allergic reactions, asthma, irritations in the nose, eyes and throat or other respiratory ailments like bronchitis. Since one cannot control the climate, its impact on the house health can be controlled. Dr. Fixit. is a market leader in providing solutions to these problems.

Some tips to consider this monsoon season:

  1. Repair cracks in walls and roofs
  2. Rectify or upgrade your drainage system
  3. Keep your interiors dry and avoid pests and bugs from entering your house
  4. Ensure proper ventilation to keep away dampness in the house
  5. Avoid renovation during monsoon

Since no one likes the damp smell in their homes, you can also use essential oils or room fresheners to breather fresh and healthy air. Positive energy in your homes only bring positivity in your lives.

I hope that these tips help you experience comfortable living and as the saying goes, “Prevention is better than cure” so, think about the health of your house too. You might be in need of some high-quality and efficient waterproofing technology for your homes to be happy and healthy always.
