Effective Ways to Prevent Damp Walls During the Monsoon

October 15, 2020/ Practical Improvements/ 0 comments


What’s the first thing that will be drenched when the monsoon comes? You house exteriors. So, while we welcome the rainy season, it is also time to put your consideration to your home exteriors.

During the monsoon, walls collect a lot of moisture, resulting in damp patches, peeling paint, and cracked walls. And the prime reason behind the damage isn’t just the inferior quality construction materials, but also the use of low-quality paint use in exterior layers of construction walls.

For that reason, your home exterior requires special care so that it can stand tall beautifully under any condition, be it heavy showers of rains or winds.  Here’s what you can do to enjoy the monsoon season without worrying about your home’s structure.

Waterproof the Structure 

Once you’ve identified the main issues within your home structure, you can start taking action. If you don’t pay attention to your home exterior, it can easily lead to structural damage to the house and visual issues on the inside and the outside of the house. So make sure you use the right Isodren drenering to make sure that all walls in or under the ground are insulated and secured against moisture problems.

These plates ensure that your home is easily insulated and drained during monsoons so you can achieve dry constructions, a good energy economy as well as a healthy indoor climate.

What’s more, many exterior walls can be very permeable and allow water to seep from walls. To prevent seepage, exterior waterproofing coats are vital for the Støttemur to the moisture and water and prevent damp walls in your home.

Install a damp proof course 

You will discover sometimes wet patches all along the lower side of your walls, very close to the skirting. However, installing a damp-proof course will prevent the groundwater from rising up through the walls of your home.

Most houses are typically constructed with a damp proof course in place. However, if you notice damp patches on the lower portion of your walls, that means your damp proof course will need replacing. Also, installing Trekkekummer will ensure that your cable routing system and current-carrying cables will be safe and sound throughout the monsoon season.

Also, remember to maintain your home well-ventilated during this period. As soon as you’ve identified fungus or mold, take immediate steps to remove them from your walls.

Grunting and pressure grouting 

Grunting refers to the process of layering, covering, or spraying a layer of concrete mixture to walls and pipes, making them waterproof. On the other side, when we talk about pressure grouting, we refer to applying a mixture of sand and cement with a jet into the fissure, cracks, or voids present in your house’s structure. The grunting process is meant to protect the structure of your home from the damaging effects of monsoon offering a protective layer throughout the season and even more.
