5 Steps To Successful Residential Christmas Light Installation

Successful residential Christmas light installation involves not only beauty, but also safety. According to the Electrical Safety Foundation International (ESFI), holiday decoration and Christmas tree fires are more severe than the average fire across all measures – resulting in twice the injuries and five times more fatalities per fire.

Not everything is doom and gloom though. A successful residential Christmas light installation also is attractive to neighbors, and can draw people from miles around to marvel at your home in the cold, crisp air.

Let’s take a look at some steps to do your home justice this holiday season.

Successful Residential Christmas Light Installation

1. Safety Equipment

Every year, roughly 5,800 people are treated in emergency rooms across the U.S. after falling while decorating for Christmas, according to ESFI. Hiring a professional, like Christmas Décor by Valley Green Companies, means you and your family will be safe from falls. We have all the proper safety equipment and training to handle residential Christmas Light installation.

2. Custom Decorations

If you want the best lights around, you need a custom display designed just for you. But hunting down all those decorations on your own is expensive, time consuming and tiring. Using a professional Christmas decorating company allows you to get a custom design without having to buy or store a single decoration.

3. Timing

Are you a procrastinator? If you put your lights up too late, it can feel like you didn’t even get to use them for the Christmas season. If you take them down too late in the spring, it can feel like the who neighborhood is judging you. With a professional team like Christmas Décor by Valley Green Companies, we get the timing just right so you get the maximum use out of your decor, in a seasonal manner.

4. Maintenance

Light bulbs burn out. Fuses blow. Water gets into extension cords. When you install lights yourself, these things can happen frequently. With a professional experience and the right equipment, these incidences are lessened considerably. Also, Christmas Décor by Valley Green Companies has our technicians come by to inspect your display twice per season after installation to ensure everything is working properly. Meaning you get to stay inside where it’s warm.

5. Safe Removal

Don’t fall off of a ladder or slip off of the roof. A safe removal of Christmas decorations is the icing on the cake of a successful Christmas season. Using a professional residential Christmas light installation company like Christmas Décor by Valley Green Companies is vital to ensuring everyone stays safe during light removal.
