Seven Holiday Safety Tips

11/29/2018 (Permalink)

Why SERVPRO Seven Holiday Safety Tips SERVPRO of East Cobb can make your fire damage, "Like it never even happened."

Beautiful holiday decorations like lights, candles, and lawn displays are just a few of the things that make the holiday season seem to come alive with charm and cheer. However, if they are not used carefully and well maintained your holidays could go from festive to frightening in no time at all.

The American Red Cross offers the following safety tips to help greatly reduce the fire risk in your home or business this holiday season.

  1. Place Christmas trees, candles and other holiday decorations at least three feet away from heat sources like fireplaces, portable heater, radiators, heat vents, and candles.
  2. Make sure light strings and other holiday decorations are in good condition. Do not use anything with frayed electrical cords and always follow the manufacturer's instructions.
  3. Always unplug tree and holiday lights before leaving the property or going to bed.
  4. Never use lit candles to decorate a tree. Always extinguish candles before leaving the room or going to bed.
  5. Use only sturdy tree stands designed not to tip over. Keep curious pets and children away from Christmas trees.
  6. Keep anything that can catch fire away from your stove top (pot holders, oven mitts, wooden utensils, paper or plastic bags, food packaging, and towels or curtains).
  7. Designate one person to walk around your property to ensure all candles and smoking materials are properly extinguished after guests leave.

We here at SERVPRO of East Cobb would like to wish you a safe and happy holiday season!
