Decorate with (Safe) Style

Decorate with (Safe) Style

| December 08, 2020

No matter how your holiday plans have changed due to COVID-19, there is one festive pleasure that we can all still indulge in - decorating for the holidays!  

Whether you are hanging lights, setting up your tree, or renting a fake snow machine, there are some things to keep in mind to avoid those wintery accidents. 

Try out the following tips to make sure your home looks fantastic without risking harm:  

  • Know your breakers - One of the most common problems is an overloaded electrical system. Check your breakers and make sure anything you plug in is on a circuit that can handle it. 
  • Don’t climb alone - Ladder safety is one of the most important tips we can give. Make sure your ladder is on stable ground, doesn’t rock, and that you have a partner to hold it while you work above. 
  • Respect your sightlines - It seems silly, but that giant Santa can block your view of the road. Make sure you can see clearly and pull out of your driveway or parking spot without obstructions. 

By paying attention to these few tips, you can help make sure the end of your year is one of celebration, not medication. Let’s say goodbye to 2020 with a happy and healthy heart.
