The gorgeous rainy season is around the corner, and as we prepare to enjoy the weather, we must also think about the ways in which we can keep our homes fresh during this time of the year. Dampness and decay can be some common problems affecting our homes in the rainy season, and a few simple measures can take care of our precious household items and keep the home feeling and looking fresh.
Here are 5 tips to keep your home fresh during the rainy season:
Secure the doors and windows: Make sure to carefully check all the doors and windows in the house and seal any gaps that you may find. This will prevent any decay or damage caused by the water coming into the home through these gaps.
Switch up the curtains: When the summer is gone and the rains arrive, you will want to replace those blackout blinds with light, breezy and sheer curtains. This will allow for more light and ventilation in the house, which is necessary to keep your home fresh during the damp rainy season.
Roll away the expensive carpets: It’s best to roll away your expensive carpets and rugs during the monsoon season. Not only will this save them from being damaged by soiled footwear, but it will also prevent them from acquiring mould due to the high moisture levels in the air.
Place a doormat: A quirky doormat at the main entrance to your home is a great way to add some character to your home, but it is especially useful during the rainy season. Skip the plain and boring doormats, and choose from among interesting patterns and designs.
Throw in some colour: Add a splash of green to your home by moving in some of the plants. Rearranging your plants during the rainy season is essential, as some of the plants will benefit from being moved indoors during the heavy rains.
