Holiday decorating safety tips to keep you and your home safe!
The holidays are here, and it is time to deck the halls! Holiday décor is a great way to help get you into the holiday spirit, but it’s important to be cautious when putting up your décor. No matter the winter holiday, decorating can be dangerous. Take safety precautions to ensure that your holiday season runs smoothly. Check out these holiday decorating safety tips.
Inspect Your Wiring.
During the holidays there are plenty of lights. From holiday lights to animatronic reindeer, these twinkling décor items are common this time of year. However, before you plug them in, remember to check the wires. Look for any broken, damaged, or frayed wiring. If you notice any, then it’s time to retire the item. Damaged wire can lead to serious issues like house fires or electrocution.
A dry Christmas tree or a menorah lighting gone awry can pose a serious fire danger. When it comes to all your holiday celebrations, ensure that you take the necessary precautions. Water your tree often to prevent it from drying out. When it comes to your menorah, ensure that you keep it away from anything flammable and always keep an eye on it. Additionally, it’s a good idea to keep a fire extinguisher on hand. That way you can put out any holiday house fires.
