When you think of the monsoon the first thought that comes to our mind is the cool breeze coming through our windows along with the long-awaited respite from the hot blazing sun. But, while bringing a pleasant and soothing climate it also brings with it a lot of health risks including bacterial and viral infections and mosquito-related diseases such as malaria and dengue.
Here is a list of measures you can take which will help in protecting your home from as many of these infections to the best of your ability.
1. Checking Your Wiring System
Power shortages and electric system malfunctioning occur a lot during the rains, you can keep these to a minimum by checking and fixing your wire system before the rain. Doing this makes your home safe from short-circuits and frequent power outages.
- Checking Your Plumbing and Drainage
The next problems we face during the monsoon is flooding and blockage of pipes. Check both your plumbing and drainage and fix if there are any blocks or faulty lines to ensure the free flow of water.

Covering your outer space including your terrace and balcony not only gives you protection from rain it also enables you to use your outer spaces to the fullest.
