Fire & Water - Cleanup & Restoration

Roughly 200 Christmas tree fires a year!

11/14/2022 (Permalink)

With the holidays upon us it is extremely important to take every precaution in order to keep your home safe. U.S. firefighters respond to roughly 200 Christmas tree fires per year, according to the National Fire Research Laboratory at NIST. There are many reasons why a Christmas tree can and will catch on fire. This includes faulty Christmas tree lights, not enough water causing the Christmas tree to die and candles too close to the tree to name a few. There are steps you can take to avoid these situations.

  1. Purchase a new artificial Christmas tree every 6 years to maintain the fire retardants.
  2. Don’t ever leave the lights plugged in overnight.
  3. Avoid using extension cords. Try and plug the lights directly into the wall
  4. Inspect pre lit Christmas trees every year for exposed or broken cords
  5. Check water level daily on your fresh trees
