Hello friends,

I wish you all a very Happy Independence Day. On this day, we all mainly talk about how we can get freedom from crimes to ensure safety of all. But today I will talk about how we can get freedom from dampness in our homes. I take pledge to become a responsible citizen and be aware of my neighbourhood surroundings to ensure safety of our residences and structures. Just like us, our homes also need doctors and I trust Dr. Fixit for my home (Doctor of waterproofing ). Dr. Fixit have taken the initiative for leakage free India and I would like to be a part of this initiative with Dr. Fixit this Independence Day and say no to damp walls, damp ceilings, rising dampness, cracks and leakages by spreading awareness about public health and safety, the problem areas in our  home and their solutions.

I recently found damp patches on the walls of my bedroom which had a bad odour and I was shocked also to see damp interior walls. On the same day, one of my mommy's friend also visited our place and when she entered the room, she was coughing because of the smell. I felt somewhere I was responsible for her suffering from damp. I made a mental note to get this problem fixed as soon as possible and take a pledge to live in a dampfree home.

I noticed that the area around the window frames was also damp. It was then I could see the signs and signals that my home needed waterproofing. It was time to focus on crucial essentials for my home. I contacted Waterproofing experts and after checking the terrace, basement, external walls, kitchens and washrooms, they identified the source of this dampness. The dampness was a result of  excessive moisture which was caused due to rising damp and seepage due to damaged window frame. Interior walls were damp because of water from outside was getting into the brickwork through cracks or gaps in the outside walls.

Then I realised that we could have prevented the damage by having a proper waterproofing solution. Damp wall conditions contribute towards the growth of molds and inhalation of mold spores can cause it to parasitically grow on living tissues or attach itself to the respiratory tract causing chronic respiratory diseases. Now this is really scary. So better we get a good exterior 'raincoat' which will ensure that the exterior walls are protected from the lashing rains. There are unique waterproofing products like Dr. Fixit Raincoat- a high performance acrylic elastomeric coating for external walls and Dr. Fixit Newcoat Ezee which can bear heat, humidity and rainfall and form a layer around the construction of external walls as well as terraces. These products are resistant to algae and fungus. And what's more interesting part if that Dr. Fixit Raincoat offers 700 shades of colors to choose from!

We spend lot of money on expensive furnishings, exquisite carpets and awe inspiring interiors. But we forget to concentrate on the most important thing for our home which is Waterproofing. Let's take a pledge to get FREEDOM FROM DAMPNESS and ensure good health of our home and our happy family.

Dr. Fixit has come up with an interesting ad with Sir Amitabh Bachchan, where he tries to inform the viewers about the advantages of waterproofing our home and disadvantages of Non-waterproofing.

Waterproofing has multiple benefits and it ensure longer life of our homes. So we all must not consider waterproofing an unnecessary financial burden but consider it as an essential prevention option to stop future damage. THINK WATERPROOFING, THINK DR. FIXIT
