Be Careful When Decorating Your Home For the Holidays

It’s the holiday season. People are preparing delicious meals, decorating their homes and spending time as a family. The local Raleigh movers remind you to be extra careful when decorating your home because the Consumer Product Safety Commission states that during this time falls from ladders and other incidents definitely increase. During the November and December months of last year, the CPSC estimated that about 13,000 people were treated in emergency departments across the country due to some kind of holiday decoration-related injury. To add to these statistics there were also a few deaths because of Christmas tree fires a few years back, not to mention millions of dollars in property damage.

The local Raleigh moving specialists remind you to be extra careful with all of your various holiday decorations. If you have a Christmas tree, make sure you place it away from any heat source like a fireplace or candles or even radiators. Also, don’t forget to water it regularly. If you’re going for the fake tree alternative, make sure is a fire-resistant one.

If lights are a big part of the home décor, use ones that are tested for safety since they have met requirements for both indoor and outdoor environments. For the outdoor ones, verify that the source they are connected to for electricity is a ground fault circuit interpreter. Verify that you don’t have any loose wires, cracked sockets or anything else that’s damaged that can create a big problem.

Don’t forget all that wrapping paper. During the holiday season, it’s all around the house so make sure you properly dispose of it and don’t leave it behind. I can be dangerous especially if you have young children or a home with a fireplace.
