Did you know...

Did you know that every year about 165,000 people require medical treatment for ladder-related injuries? (A majority of these falls occur in close proximity to the home)

Did you know that the frequency of ladder-related injuries has increased significantly over the last decade?

Did you know the average cost of treating a fall-related injury goes up with age?

Did you know that you can hire a professional to hang holiday lights for you?

Hiring a Professional Service

Hiring a licensed contractor to hang holiday lighting is great option for many homeowners! A professional service will hang the lights just how you like them. At the end of the holiday season, they will return to take them down and neatly pack them up. Some companies may even offer to store the lights for you in the off-season (so you won’t have to dig them out of the attic every year).

The advantages of hiring a professional service are obvious. You don’t have to worry about getting up on a ladder and potentially about hurting yourself. Your house will look great and you can enjoy the holiday season without any additional stress.

The disadvantage for many homeowners is the cost. Why should you pay someone to do what you’ve been doing for years? We want you to know that it doesn't have to cost an arm and leg. It can't hurt to get an estimate and decide if it's really worth it.

We always recommend getting more than one estimate and comparing each quote carefully to find the best deal. Check out this article to learn more about the cost of holiday light installation. Before hiring any professional, it’s important to verify that they are properly licensed and fully insured.



Not Convinced? Here are some DIY Tips

1) Many of ladder-related injuries are caused by choosing the wrong piece of equipment. Make sure the ladder is in good condition and positioned firmly on the ground. It’s also important to use a ladder that can fully support your weight, in addition to the weight of the items you are carrying.

2) An electrical malfunction can spark a fire in your home. Before hanging any lights, it’s important to inspect every strings of lights to ensure there are no frayed wires and broken bulbs. It’s also important to avoid overloading one particular circuit.

3) Putting your lights on an automatic timer can help to save money on you electricity bill during the holiday season. Also, choosing energy-efficient LED lights over the more traditional, incandescent bulbs can also help to reduce energy costs.
