Happy Holidays from SERVPRO of North Central Austin

Pretty lights, candles and decorations are
just a few of the items bringing charm
and cheer to the holiday season—however, if
they are not used carefully your holidays may go
from festive to frightening.
The American Red Cross offers the following
safety tips to help greatly reduce the fire risk in
your home or business this holiday season.

  • Place Christmas trees, candles and other
    holiday decorations at least three feet away
    from heat sources like fi replaces, portable
    heaters, radiators, heat vents and candles.
  • Make sure that light strings and other
    holiday decorations are in good condition.
    Do not use anything with frayed electrical
    cords and always follow the manufacturer’s
    instructions.
  • Always unplug tree and holiday lights
    before leaving the property or going to bed.
  • Never use lit candles to decorate a tree.
    Always extinguish candles before leaving
    the room or going to bed.
  • Use only sturdy tree stands designed not to
    tip over. Keep curious pets and children
    away from Christmas trees.
  • Keep anything that can catch on fi re—pot
    holders, oven mitts, wooden utensils,
    paper or plastic bags, food packaging, and
    towels or curtains—away from your stove
    top.
  • Designate one person to walk around your property to ensure all candles and smoking materials are properly extinguished after guests leave.
