People try different methods to get rid of the dust that comes inside the homes because of hot winds in summer. It is needless to say that you cannot wholly keep it away and there must be regular vacuuming and cleaning of your home in this season. You must also consider getting an air-purifier for yourselves.

3. If You Live on Top-Most Floor Do This
People with apartments on the top floor of their buildings often face the problem of hotter temperature on their floors compared to the ones closest to the ground floor. To get rid of this problem the simplest way is to water the terrace that lowers down the temperature of the ceiling of the apartments below them. The way this method works is simple. When you water the terrace, and the Sun evaporates this water from the surface of the terrace floor, because the latent heat is taken from the floor to vaporise the water, it leaves the ground cooler and decreases the temperature of the apartment below. Make sure to give it a try.

Summers are also the time of annoying bugs entering your home. Wasps, ladybugs, and other unwanted insects often come inside houses because of hot winds. It is time when you make your home pest-free.

5. Keeping Your Home Cooler
Yes, it would help if you got your air-conditioning well in readiness as summers start. So, we are not going to get deep into getting your ACs, and evaporative coolers serviced or fixed but go onto something that people often fail to do, which is letting the air in the home.
