During this holiday season, many of us have a beautifully decorated live Christmas tree as part of the tradition of the season. It is important that the tree is carefully decorated to ensure a safe holiday season.  Over the years, Christmas tree fires have been responsible for property damage.  Most resulted from electrical malfunctions from Christmas tree lights such as faulty wiring.  Other tree fires were caused by having the tree placed too close to a heat source, such as a candle or fireplace.  To help avoid any tree fire disasters, consider following these safety tips

  • Be sure to water live Christmas trees, as dried out trees increase fire risk
  • Set up trees at least three feet away from heat sources
  • Ensure trees are secured and sturdy in the tree stand to prevent them from tipping over
  • Use non-flammable decorations only
  • Inspect lights for frayed, faulty, or exposed wiring, broken bulbs, or loose bulb connections
  • Make sure the tree is not blocking an exit

Let your holiday season be filled with joy.  By following these simple safety tips, you can enjoy your time with friends and families.  If your home suffers from fire damage, call the trained professionals at SERVPRO of Sugar Land.  Our team has the knowledge and experience to properly treat fire damage.  Our company offers 24/7 emergency services!
