"It's the most wonderful time of the year," but it can also be one of the most dangerous for indoor fires. Clean Earth Restorations provides full service fire damage restoration and smoke damage clean up services in San Diego. This holiday season, be safe by remembering these tips:
- Inspect holiday lights each year before you put them up. Throw away light strands with frayed or pinched wires.
- Water your Christmas tree every day. A dry tree is dangerous because it can catch on fire easily.
- Consider using battery-operated flameless candles, which can look, smell and feel like real candles.
- If you do use lit candles, make sure they are in stable holders and place them where they cannot be knocked down easily.
