During the holiday season, you may want to make your home merry and bright. Unfortunately, as you are decorating your home, you can make mistakes that can be damaging to your home. At Ledford Agency LLC, serving the greater Midland, TX area, we want to help you keep your home safe in any way we can.
Here are a few ways you can avoid home damage as you go about decorating your home for the holidays:
Avoid Using Nails to Hang Christmas Lights
One of the most common mistakes that people make when they are decorating their home for the holidays is to hang Christmas lights from their gutters or roofs with nails. Nails can damage both your gutters and roof, so they should never be used. Instead, use light clips to hang lights.
Don’t Overload Your Electric System
Another way that you can avoid home damage this holiday season is to avoid overloading your electrical system. If you plan on making a large display, reach out to an electrician to add another circuit to your breaker box to accommodate all of the lights and blow-ups you plan to use.
Cover Your Floor to Protect It From the Christmas Tree
Lastly, always cover your floor to help protect it from the Christmas tree. Water from a Christmas tree can damage the carpet or hardwood floor. The base of a fake tree can scratch flooring. Protecting your floor helps to ensure your tree does not leave behind damage after the holidays are over.
