Make sure that the external walls of your house are painted with waterproof coats. This will prevent water to seep from external wall to the internal walls.
Protect wooden furniture
You need to periodically check the wardrobes during monsoon. In order to avoid the musty smell, keep the doors of the wardrobe open for some time. Paint/polish the furniture will increase the longevity of your furniture.
Check electrical fittings
Old broken electrical fittings will cause electric shocks, voltage fluctuation and power off. To avoid accidents make sure that you check all the electrical fittings of your house. It is preferred to call an electrician to check and fix the electrical faults in your house.
AC outdoor unit should be kept raised from the sunshade, preferably on stands so that water stagnation can be prevented.
Check roofs and walls
Any cracks in the roofs and walls will lead to dampness and allow the moisture to get into the structure of your house. To safeguard, fill the hole with crack fillers and re-paint the walls. In high-rise buildings, there are chances for improper plant growth in the roof, which leads to cracks. To avoid this, immediately uproot the plants and periodically maintain the roof.
Clean all rooftop drains and rainwater pipe
Remove all the blockages in the rooftop drains and rainwater pipe. This will avoid clogging of water in sunshades and rooftops.
Avoid using carpets and rugs during monsoon
During monsoon, muddy footprints and moisture will cause damage to your expensive carpets. It is better to use bamboo carpet or coir mat during the rainy season.
