You had an unusual task that our insurance company had never heard of: Cleanup after a fire extinguisher exploded in a bedroom leaving extinguisher residue 360 degrees in the room. You did an outstanding cleanup of everything. Thank You!. Srd S

6 Christmas Light Safety Tips

6 Christmas Light Safety Tips

Tags: All, Blog

We all know it’s easy to get distracted with all the fun of the holiday season. It is important, however, to remember that this time of year can bring with it some dangers. Let’s explore how we can keep our homes and families safe during this joyous time.

Christmas lights fill our homes with glowy cheer and warmth but, if used incorrectly, they can also fill our homes with fire. Here are some tips on how to safely enjoy your Christmas lights this season:

Don’t skimp – Did you know that Christmas lights have ratings? You can check to see if your lights have been tested and rated by checking the box. Look for UL or ETL SEMKO. Some cheaper brands do not test and rate their lights, these are the ones to be wary of.

Are they frayed? – When you take your lights out of storage carefully look them over. If they are frayed at any points you run the risk of having an electrical short which can cause fires and/or damage the rest of your lights. When in doubt throw them out.

Indoor or outdoor? – There is a difference between the two. It’s very important to respect the usage outlined specifically for your lights.

Hang with care – Take care to hang your lights only in safe spaces. Try to stay away from items such as space heaters, paper, candles, or any other flammable materials.

Extinguish your lights when you leave – There’s no need to burn your lights for an empty home. It’s important to always be nearby when they’re lit just in case.

Replace those bulbs – If you have a burned out bulb replace it. Never leave an empty socket.

We here at Delta Southern Colorado want you to have the happiest and safest of holiday seasons. We hope these easy tips help you use you enjoy your Christmas lights with no mishaps.
