Holiday Fire Safety Tips

10/31/2016 (Permalink)

Halloween is the start of the festive holiday season and with the holidays quickly approaching, we at SERVPRO of Helotes and Leon Springs wanted to give you some quick tips to help insure that you have a safe holiday season.

One of every three home Christmas tree fires are caused by electrical problems.

  • A heat source too close to the tree causes roughly one in every six of Christmas tree fires.
  • More than half (56%) of home candle fires occur when something that can catch on fire is too close to the candle.
  • Choose decorations that are fire resistant
  • Check if lights are intended for indoor or outdoor use.
  • Connect no more than three strands of mini-light sets and a maximum of 50 screw-in bulbs. Read the manufacturers instructions for the number of LED strands to connect.
  • Replace strings of lights if they have worn or broken cords or loose bulb connections.
  • Keep trees away from heating appliances
