Prevent water get into your house
We cannot live without water, we all know this. But, when the weather is bad, especially during heavy raining, water can get into a house. There are lots of possible damages in this case. Water can get inside through windows and doors. In many cases, power outlets are under the window. If water gets in touch with them, it can cause damage to your TV, computer and other electrical devices. Even if you don’t have a power outlet under the window, wet laminate flooring will start swelling so you must replace it. Also, carpets stink when they are wet. The situation is the same with the doors.
The best solution is to replace your windows. But, if you are on a budget, this may be a problem. The solution is simple. Water can get through a window and around it. You can use silicone in order to fill gaps. There are silicon's in different colors, but you should use white (if your window is white) and transparent. Also, all windows have a rubber around them. During the time, that rubber is damaged so water can pass. The solution is to replace the rubber. It is very affordable.
Your front door is exposed to the water and weather conditions. This means they are more likely to be damaged than the door in a house. You can use the same techniques. Use a silicone and replace rubber or add around them. Also, you must protect your door from the element. There are several solutions, but paint is the best. It is cheap and you can do it yourself.
