It’s that time of the year again when you need to wear those rain boots and take your umbrella along with you everywhere you go. As ready as you are to take on the rainy season, have you ever considered getting your home prepared as well?
Here are some tips on how to prepare for the wet season.
1. Get your roof ready for a lot of rain. – Look for cracks or holes on your roof that might cause water to enter your home. The roof should be on a tip top condition.
2. Clear any debris or dry leaf that can cause clogging of the rain gutters. Your gutters should drain well.
3. Make sure that both your door and windows close properly. Not being able to properly shut both is one of the major causes of having unwated rain water to enter your home and ruin your furniture.
4. If you live in a home that is prone to flooding, have enough sandbags to counter the flood.
