After a hard winter, we know that you would be looking forward to the sun. But before the sun can make an appearance you would have to deal with the rain. We know that this is no one’s favourite season. That is because there is something absolutely dreadful about the wet weather. But whether you like it or not the monsoon season is here. Furthermore, that is not all; this season is also here to stay. In that case, it is imperative for you to take steps to prepare your house for this season. That is because just like you, your house also needs to prepare for this seasonal change.
Clean Out Your Gutters
We know that you don’t think about your gutters on a daily basis. That is because for many of you gutters are simply another feature of the house. But what you are failing to realize is how imperative they are to the survival of your house during the rainy season. That is because the gutters main function is to catch rainfall and prevent it from reaching the foundation. But it would not be able to complete this task if the gutters are clogged up. This can happen because ice and other debris can fill it up. Therefore you need to take some commercial ladders to clean this debris. This is something that you need to do before the monsoon season hits you. Otherwise, the gutters would not be able to hold the rainwater and it would flow towards the foundation. Then you would have to spend a fortune to fix this problem. Thus, that is why the easiest thing that you can do is clean out the gutters beforehand.
Check For Signs Of Leakage
When we tell you to check for signs of leakage many assume that they would have to get up on light weight ladders to do this. But that is not necessarily true. That is because if there is any leakage it can be easily observed. All you have to do is scan your ceilings. Then you can easily see watermarks if there is any leakage. Furthermore, remember that it is also possible for you to observe the condition of the roof and reach a determination. If there are missing or curled shingles then you need to start worrying. We would ideally advise you to attack this problem as soon as you see it.It is true that the monsoon season is the dreariest time of the year. But remember that it is also a hard season for the house to experience.
