The monsoon season has officially begun and while it saves us from the summer heat, this season also brings some troubles and inconveniences. Good thing though, there are a lot of tips and tricks on how to prepare for such. Megaworld projects are designed and equipped to withstand any weather circumstance. However, it doesn’t hurt to be prepared.
Here are 8 tips to a safe and happy rainy season:
1. STOCK UP ON EMERGENCY SUPPLIES
Continuous rains could prevent you from going out to buy your groceries and essential needs. Save time by purchasing in large quantities and just store them in your cabinets as reserve.
But do not fret, as with Megaworld Township everything you need – from groceries to emergency needs are just a stone’s throw away.
2. ENSURE LEAK-FREE WINDOWS
Water leaks in windows and glass doors are likely to happen during heavy rains. Keep your windows tightly-sealed and leak-free by attaching rubber sealants into window frames.
If ever leaks do arise, rest assured that resident concerns will be addressed by hands on Building Admin
3. HAVE A STORAGE FOR WET SHOES, UMBRELLA AND CLOTHES
Place a basket behind your door where you can leave your wet clothes and umbrella and another basket specifically for your shoes before entering the condo. In this way, we maintain the floor drip-free and prevent any floor damages.
Building admin assures that the lobby, elevator, and hallways are always dry to ensure resident safety.
4. CONDUCT A WEEKLY GENERAL CLEANING
Cleaning your condo regularly prevents mold to accumulate inside your place. You may also consider placing air diffusers and air disinfectant sprays to maintain the air smelling fresh and clean.
Megaworld building admin assures cleanliness both inside and outside the property to ensure residents’ safety and peace of mind.
5. PROTECT METAL FIXTURES
Metal fixtures, like balconies, handrails, and windows are part of your property. Since they are found outside and are the most affected by weather changes, maintain their beauty and usability by coating them with rust-proof paint before rainy season comes.
6. PREPARE AN EMERGENCY KIT
We can always prepare and adapt to any catastrophes. You can do so by having a go-bag or a kit of emergency supplies ready and within reach. Having these kits ensure that you’ll get what you need when weather-related emergencies and other crisis hit us.
7. Maintain your balcony in good condition
Your condo balcony gets exposed to all kinds of weather – rain, wind, and hot sun. During rainy months, wet tiles can be slippery and lead to moss or mold growth. It’s better to use non-skid flooring material to prevent possible slippery hazard. Make sure you keep the floor and railing in excellent condition.
If you have a balcony garden, your plants will be prone to very strong winds, especially if you are in the upper levels. Bring them inside to protect the plants from being uprooted and the leaves from tearing apart.
8. VENTILATE YOUR SPACE PROPERLY
If you keep your windows shut for a long time, the air quality inside your condo unit will start to diminish. First, make sure that the wind isn’t strong enough that rainwater can get in. Then, open your windows once in a while to let fresher air in so that you don’t feel stuffy.
Air that is too dry can cause dry skin, eyes, and throat. Air that is too humid may cause molds and mildews that can affect your respiratory system.
It will be good to invest in diffusers or other odor eliminating systems to avoid foul odor.
Rainy season can be quite a hassle and it definitely pays to be prepared. Spare yourself from the stress and keep your condo safe and dry.
