world look fresher and more welcoming, the rains also bring high humidity indoors, causing
problems like seepage and moisture. Moss can grow inside a home if there is too much moisture. To
dehumidify your home and produce a healthy indoor atmosphere, always keep tabs on your interior

ensure they survive the rainy season. The humid weather has an impact on home painting and
colour. As a result, it is in your power to take whatever steps are necessary to safeguard your
property from the negative consequences of excessive wetness. The wetness and moisture
combined on rainy days could be terrible for interiors. There is a plethora of solutions that can be
used to defend one’s home. Here’s what you need to do RIGHT NOW to enjoy the monsoon showers
without fear of your home’s integrity being jeopardized.


Determine the Cause of the Dampness

The first step is to inspect the house for evidence of
moisture, such as wet patches on the walls and ceilings, white mineral deposits on the walls, or
flaking paint. Check for likely sources of water seepage, such as leaking pipes, wall and ceiling cracks,
or damaged tile grout, once you’ve discovered the wet zones. Make it a priority to repair any leaking
pipes, cracks, or re-grout the tiles as soon as possible.


Keep the House Ventilated

Allow fresh air to circulate throughout the house by opening the
windows. Cross ventilation is one of the most effective methods for extracting moist interior air and
preventing condensation, which causes dampness.


Reduce Moisture

Covering saucepans when cooking to minimize steam build-up, drying wet
clothing outside, and wiping the bathroom after a shower are all simple strategies to control and
reduce moisture. You can also buy a portable dehumidifier to get rid of the extra moisture in your
home.


Turn on the Exhaust Fans

When cooking in the kitchen or taking a hot shower in the bathroom, the
humidity levels rise. As a result, turn on the exhaust fan to extract moisture and prevent water
condensation in the kitchen and bathroom. Install a chimney above the kitchen hob to exhaust
steam, kitchen odours, and other pollutants produced when cooking.

 

Mould must be removed from the walls

Mold thrives in regions where there has been
condensation and the water vapour has not been able to escape. Mold grows most commonly under
furniture, in disused corners of the house, on window sills, in closets, and in closed kitchen or
bathroom cabinets. Keep your furniture at least 2 inches away from the walls as a precaution to
allow air to circulate freely and prevent the spread of mold. Wiping mold away with a damp cloth
is one of the most effective ways to do so. The next step is to make a bleach solution with three
parts water and spray it over the mold-affected region. Allow it to sit for a few minutes before
scrubbing the surface with a gentle brush until the mold is gone.

 

Waterproof Paints for The Win

The most common cause of wall paint damage or blistering on
walls is the use of poor paint, which results in wall damage. A good Painting services Concrete readily absorbs water, which
has recently seeped into the inner walls, causing damage. Monsoon, on the other hand, isn’t only
about rain and winds; it also delivers a lot of dust. As a result, it’s critical that the outside layer of
your walls be adequately protected from both water and dust.

The following are some of the paints to think about:

and inside of a building.

attracts a lot of dust to the outer walls.

monsoon-related circumstances. Its Nano Silicon Technology makes it 100% water repellent and the

walls.

walls. There’s no need to be concerned because this happens to many people who hire our wall
