ServiceMaster Complete Restoration by Stiffey wants you to have a holiday season free from fire and water damage.

Can you believe it’s already December? Christmas tunes are playing on the radio, encouraging people to get into the holiday spirit. One of the first steps many homeowners will take is decorating their home, but many forget safety when doing so. Remember these tips when decorating for the holidays to avoid fire damage in your Greensburg, PA home:

Trees. Real trees can be a fire hazard, but artificial trees are usually fire resistant. Make sure your tree is away from fireplaces and heat sources, and take good care of your tree over the winter season. If you have a real tree, check it often and ensure it has plenty of water.

Lights. Check all lights for cracked insulation or loose wires while decorating, and get rid of damaged strings. Always remember to turn off the lights on trees and other decorations before you go to bed or leave the house. Lights left on for extended periods of time increase the chances of fire damage.

Candles. Keep candles away from the tree, paper, and other flammable decorations. Candles should always be extinguished before you leave the house or go to bed.

The holidays are, unfortunately, a common time for fires. From trees to lights to candles, fire damage and smoke damage can happen in the blink of an eye. Our 24/7 emergency hotline will help you begin the process of fire damage restoration.
