Holiday Decoration Safety

12/2/2021 (Permalink)

Everyone’s favorite time is just around the corner. Holiday season! The weather’s changing and everyone’s trying to guess the appropriate time to but the Christmas music on the radios and put up the lights, but it’s important to remember to not get lost in the decoration excitement and make sure that everything is done safely.

Putting up lights is a great way to celebrate and spread holiday cheer, just be sure to inspect all of the cords for frayed wires or broken bulbs, and never plug in more lights than the recommended amount to avoid overloading the circuit.

Make sure that your decorations are fire retardant, never use an open flame as part of a decoration, and especially do not hang any decorations from your fire suppression systems.

Doorways, walkways and building entry and exit points should be clear from obstructions and emergency exit signs should still be clearly visible.

We hope you have a safe and happy holiday season, and should you encounter any emergencies requiring our restoration services please don’t hesitate to give us a call!
