The Threat of Fire and Falls from Holiday Decorating!
Your business might be closed for holiday vacation, but fire safety should never take a day off. There are plenty of ways to make sure you are still protecting your business and avoiding any need for commercial fire restoration services. At SERVPRO we’re dedicated to sharing the knowledge necessary to enjoy a festive holiday that is still safe and fire-free, except for those “chestnuts roasting on an open fire.”
Fake is Not Foolproof
If your business celebrates the festive season by putting up a tree, don’t be fooled by the fake variety when it comes to fire safety. Fake trees may not need water and, therefore, are not at risk of drying out and possibly catching fire, but before you purchase a fake tree check to ensure it includes the all-important “fire resistant” tag.
Avoid a “Festive” Fall
Aside from the threat of fire, a lot of commercial decorating injuries result from falling. Avoid taking a bad tumble by securing a stable ladder wherever you intend to hang decorations, and recruit as an assistant to help and stay close by until your decorating is complete. It is better to wait until you have an extra set of hands to help put up the lights, rather than wind up needing a trip to the ER.
Happy Holidays to our business community from SERVPRO, your local cleanup and restoration experts!
