Holiday Fire Damage Cleanup Help in Peachtree Corners
Call Us for Peachtree Corners Fire Damage Cleanup
There is much to love about the holiday season, especially if you host a gathering at your Peachtree Corners home. Amidst the smell of food cooking and a lit tree with presents underneath, nothing is worse than a fire that puts a damper on the festivities. Unfortunately, fires often happen throughout the holidays due to increased hazards as property owners put up flammable décor, burn candles, and overload their electrical systems. AdvantaClean of Norcross and Buford wants you to know that we are here for 24/7 emergency restoration – even over the holidays!
Did You Know? Approximately 25% of the Christmas tree fires caused in the home are due to electrical issues. Additionally, about one in four housefires during this season happen because of a heat source located too close to the holiday tree. Keeping these details in mind, we want to share some safety tips to help prevent the need for fire damage cleanup at your Peachtree Corners property.
Christmas Tree Tips for Safety
Opt for a fresh tree – A freshly cut Christmas tree is not as likely to catch fire, so look for one with green, healthy needles that will not break away from branches easily. Fresh trees should never readily shed needles. Also, keep the base filled with water to keep it from drying, as the drier your tree, the more of a hazard it becomes.
Always keep the tree away from heat sources – Your tree should be a fair distance from heat sources like heating vents, radiators, candles, fireplaces, or lights. The needles, branches, and decorations could catch fire when exposed to extreme heat.
Inspect your lights – All indoor and outdoor lights should have been tested and approved by the ETL/ITSNA or UL for safety. Any frayed or worn light strings or damaged bulbs should get recycled or thrown out.
There Are Other Holiday Fire Hazards
The Christmas tree is not the only fire hazard to be aware of during the holiday season. We get called for fire damage cleanup for issues with dryers, fireplaces, heaters, and candles. Each can be very dangerous, mainly if used over time when temperatures drop in winter.
