It is no secret that Christmas trees are highly flammable and can burst into flames easily. They burn strong and quickly, easily causing a massive house fire in minutes. To help prevent this, keep the tree moist by watering it daily and removing it from your home when it begins to dry. Be mindful of flame sources nearby candles and fireplaces, and keep them at a distance. If you experience a home fire, large or small, Maven Construction Group can work to reconstruct and restore your home efficiently.
Many people love decorating their homes for the holidays. However, sometimes installing holiday decorations can cause damage to your roof or the exterior of your home. Walking on a roof, securing lights, and decorating it can remove or crack shingles. Be mindful of where you secure decorations and what damage could occur if the decoration moves or falls.
When installing and removing lights and decorations, falls are common. People may work quickly or recklessly and fall off a ladder injuring themselves or others. Also, be sure a ladder is on flat ground and completely locked in place. Stay focused to not lean too far in one direction.
With many mouths to feed and a variety of dishes, the holidays require a lot of cooking. This busy and hectic cooking schedule can often lead to mistakes and accidents. Cooking fires are very dangerous, especially grease or oil fires. Remember to smother cooking fires and call the fire department immediately.
