Holiday Fire Tips from SERVPRO of Lexington Thomasville

11/30/2022 (Permalink)

Christmas Tree and Fireplace Home fires are more common at Christmas.

Did you know that there are more home fires at Christmas than at any other time of the year? SERVPRO of Lexington Thomasville would like to inform you of some safety tips that will help prevent accidents from a fire happening to your home or business during the holiday season.

Christmas Trees:

- When it comes to lighting your tree this year, make sure that you are using power strips to plug your lights in. This will help prevent the overloading of your household wiring.

- If you do not have an electrical outlet near the location of your tree, be sure to use extension cords. This will help with avoiding stretching of the electrical cords which could potentially be a tripping hazard.


-When using candles, do not burn them for more than 4 hours at a time. Putting them out every 4 hours helps prevent in the spilling of hot wax.


-Stack wood carefully away from the fireplace.

-Keep tinder enclosed or out of reach of any sparks that could be thrown out of the fire.
