Safety During Holidays

We here at SERVPRO of Tracy, have Holiday Fire Safety Tips. Put a Freeze on Holiday Fires! 

The holidays are a time when we put aside practicality to indulge tradition and  fantasy. We hang many lights from the rooftops and all around the house and bring live trees into our living rooms. We all need to take a break from the normal routine we are in day in and day, but the magic of the holidays can be ruined so quickly by a serious injury or carelessly placed candle.

SERVPRO of Tracy has some holiday tips that will keep you safe to enjoy the holiday season with family and friends!

Make sure to check the wiring on your Christmas lights. If the wires are frayed, replace them, even if they still work. The cost of new lights is minimal compared to the cost of fire damage restoration.

Next, SERVPRO encourages you to keep an eye on the weather while traveling.  If freezing temps are on their way while you will be out of town, make sure to wrap pipes, cover plants and take cold weather precautions just in case!

Also, candles are one of the top causes of holiday fire damage. You could possibly use battery-operated lights instead of candles to lower your risk of a accidental fire. If candles are needed for your holiday traditions, or are just too hard to part with, be careful not to place them too close to flammable curtains, greeting cards, or your Christmas tree.

SERVPRO of Tracy wants you to enjoy the holiday season with as much safety as possible!

Happy Holidays from SERVPRO of Tracy - Call us at 209-834-0200....
