How to protect electrical appliances during monsoon

Jun 17, 2020

Sitting by the window of your balcony, drinking your favourite tea/coffee and watching the rhythmic fall of raindrops is the most beautiful picture during monsoon. No wonder we all love monsoon, but this season is notorious for wrecking our electrical appliances. The dampness due to increased moisture content in the air makes our appliances prone to high risk during monsoon. On one side, monsoon imparts a divine feeling to our soul and mind, while on the other the whole rainy thing leaves the house with muddy footprints, damp interiors, musty air and leaky walls.

We have enlisted some tips that will help you to safeguard your electrical appliances during monsoon:

Monsoons can bring a lot of health challenges, with stagnant water, mosquitoes and diseases. Hence, one should empty their Air Cooler tank in the rainy season to avoid mosquito breeding and rusting. Bajaj Electricals offers a wide range of Air Cooler options that perfectly suits your requirements. Bajaj’s new range of Air Coolers are aesthetically built, performance driven and come with Smart Anti-bacterial Honeycomb Technology that treats you with cool and hygienic air.

Dust attracts moisture during the monsoon causing fungal growth in your appliances. To avoid such trouble, it is very important to clean your appliances such as Microwaves, Cooktops, Rice Cookers with a clean dry cloth frequently.

In India, unexpected power cuts and fluctuations are quite common and can cause huge damage to the appliances. Therefore, it is always advisable that you should unplug your electrical devices during torrential downpours.

To prevent damage by the static currents arising out of lightning, please ensure all electronic kitchen appliances such as Microwave Ovens, OTGs, Refrigerators are properly grounded. Voltage fluctuations can damage household electrical appliances and choosing the right stabilizer might solve this issue by ensuring hassle-free operations.

During monsoon, the exposed metal surfaces of your Water Heater might face certain corrosion related issues. Citric acid or acetic acid is a great way to remove rust. Rub vinegar/salt and lime juice all over the rusted area, leave it for 3-4 hours and scrub it off with the help of a scourer or steel wool. Equipped with multiple safety systems for protection against dry heating, overheating and overpressure, corrosion-resistant, and adjustable electronic thermostat for quick performance with aesthetically pleasing design, Bajaj Water Heaters will protect yourself and your family from the chilling cold during monsoon.

During monsoon, the incidence of contracting breathing-related allergies increases with the drop-in temperature and increase in the dampness in air. Hence, it is very important to keep the ceiling fans clean for fresh air during the season. If you have a dirty ceiling fan, then you need to clean it thoroughly and properly with distilled water and vinegar solution. To safeguard your loved ones from germs and dust on fans, you can also buy Bajaj’s new range of Anti-Germ & Bye-Bye Dust Ceiling Fans for the health and well-being of your family.

With the rain spreading its wings outside, you don’t have the mercy of the sun to dry out your clothes. In this dreary condition, a handy iron can easily help in drying out the slightly damp clothes as well as flattening out the creases. Equipped with multiple safety features, Bajaj offers a wide range of steam irons and dry irons for an unperturbed ironing experience.

Electrical fitting and switches need regular maintenance and it is important to have a check on them during monsoon. The switches need to be covered with a waterproof resistant material and the damaged electrical cords should be replaced to prevent danger from electric shock.

During monsoon, please ensure that electrical appliances such as lamps and switches that are close to windows and doors are secured and kept dry. Don’t forget to check seeps and cracks in ceiling or walls. If found, immediately repair the leaks to avoid getting electrocuted.

Please ensure that you do not use any of the electronic appliances barefoot to avoid getting unexpected electrical shocks.

With the onset of the monsoon, if you realize that your electrical appliances have started behaving oddly, it is always recommended to get them checked properly by a trusted technician/electrician. In line with the government mandates and guidelines, you may now seek the assistance of home service with trained technicians from Bajaj Electricals.

These small tips will ensure that your home and appliances stay safe, just like you, in the monsoon.
