Monsoon Wall Waterproofing Maintenance

Rainy season property preparedness: Your essential checklist for a problem-free monsoon with Berger Homeshield.

Ah, the rainy season is upon us again! The pitter-patter of raindrops, the earthy scent in the air, and the cozy moments spent indoors with a cup of hot cocoa – there is something magical about the monsoons. However, as much as we love the rainy season, it can wreak havoc on our homes if we don’t take proper precautions. One of the essential areas to focus on is waterproofing solutions for walls. So, let’s dive into our yearly wall waterproofing maintenance checklist to keep your home cozy and dry throughout the monsoon!Waterproofing Solutions for Walls

Inspect the Exterior Walls: Begin by conducting a thorough inspection of your exterior walls. Look for cracks, gaps or any signs of deterioration. Pay close attention to areas where water can seep in, such as around windows, doors, or utility openings. If you spot any issues, address them promptly by filling cracks and sealing gaps with an appropriate waterproofing compound. This step ensures that your walls remain resistant to water penetration.

Clean and Clear Drainage Systems: A well-functioning drainage system is vital in preventing water accumulation around your home. Ensure that your gutters are clean and free from debris. Clear any blockages that may hinder the flow of water. Make sure that the downpipes direct water away from the foundation, preventing excess moisture from seeping into the walls. Properly functioning drainage systems help maintain the integrity of your walls by minimizing water exposure.

Apply a Waterproof Coating: Consider applying a waterproof coating like Berger Dampstop Advanced to your exterior walls. This protective layer acts as a barrier against moisture, preventing it from seeping into the walls.  A waterproof coating not only enhances the wall’s resistance to water but also provides added protection against fungal growth and efflorescence.

Check Interior Walls for Leaks: Water can find its way into your home through cracks or leaks in the interior walls. Inspect your interior walls for any signs of water damage, such as dampness, discolouration, or peeling paint. Repair any leaks promptly to prevent further damage. Use waterproof sealants or fillers to seal gaps or cracks in the walls. Maintaining the integrity of your interior walls is essential to prevent moisture-related issues during the monsoon season. 

Monitor Humidity Levels: High humidity levels can contribute to dampness and mould growth on your walls. Use a Homeshield Moisture Meter to measure the humidity levels in your walls regularly. If the humidity is consistently high, get in touch with waterproofing experts right away! Proper air circulation helps in drying out any moisture that may accumulate on the walls, preventing the growth of mould or mildew.
