Although monsoons are a pleasant change, it brings along a host of problems. In fact, the onset of monsoons brings along diseases and infections which can lead to severe gastroenteritis, diarrhea, vomiting, food poisoning and other illnesses. One can follow some basic tips to have a stress-free monsoon.
De-clutter: One of the key things to keep in mind is to de-clutter your home. While carpets are fancy and decorative items, it is better to roll them up during this season. Moreover, since the moisture content in the air is high, drying these carpets also consume a lot of time and energy. Instead, store them safely in a dry place and use them later on
For a Germ-free home: Disinfect your bedsheets, pillowcases and upholstery with new-age UV sanitizers, which provide a non-chemical approach to cleaning, ensuring all traces of dust mites are wiped clean. Clean and vacuum regularly, using a vacuum cleaner with five-stage air filtration, which allows deep cleaning and hard-to-reach places such as carpets, space below the beds, windows and grills and other crevices
For Clean Air: Since a lot of people end up spending a major chunk of their time indoors, people often complain of damp smells in the rooms which can cause discomfort and many health issues. Instead of opting for an air conditioner which recirculates the same air in the house, one can install an air purifier with a high efficiency particulate air filtration (HEPA) filter, as it can trap small particles and pollutants such as molds, smoke, house dust and pet dander and also remove foul odour, thereby significantly improving air quality during monsoons.
Fix Leakages: Find and fix any leaks in your house, especially plumbing fixtures, as mold grows on any organic material that has been wet for more than 72 hours, triggering respiratory illness and allergies. If you find moisture, fix the problem immediately. Also, it is important to remember not to allow any kind of water to stagnate inside the house, as it can become a breeding ground for mosquitoes.
For Healthy water: The fact is that boiling water is effective towards waterborne bacteria and virus but it has no effect on chlorine content and cysts, nor does it remove turbidity, organic and inorganic impurities. Also, water needs to be boiled for minimum 20 minutes on-roll for it to effectively deactivate the disease-causing microorganisms. Since the chances of water contamination is high during monsoons, choose a water purifier that has the ability to remove the new-age contaminants. There are range of superior and customized water solutions available in the market that are equipped with patented Mineral Cartridge & Biotron technology which magnetizes & declusters water molecules and provides healthy drinking water
With these simple tips and tricks for home care, one can definitely enjoy the pleasant monsoons and safeguard the health of your near and dear ones.Marzin R Shroff
