The winter holiday season is upon us, and it is a time for traditions and decorating our homes. As we prepare our homes for holiday gatherings, we should also keep safety in mind. Here are a few tips from the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) to ensure a fire-safe holiday season:

Holiday decorating

  • Be careful with holiday decorations. Choose decorations that are flame resistant or flame retardant.
  • Keep lit candles away from decorations and other things that can burn.
  • Some lights are only for indoor or outdoor use, but not both.
  • Replace any string of lights with worn or broken cords or loose bulb connections. Read manufacturer’s instructions for number of light strands to connect.
  • Use clips, not nails, to hang lights so the cords do not get damaged.
  • Keep decorations away from windows and doors.

If you experience fire or smoke damage, SERVPRO of Downers Grove / Oak Brook has a team of highly trained technicians available 24-hours a day to assist you. Please call us at 630-573-4290.
