Keep your home safe over the holidays! By Lori Spohn

Industry Observer

Do you want to make sure your home is safe over the holiday season?

Remember your furry friends and kids during the holidays. They are interested in all the shiny glass ornaments. Keep those up high and out of reach! Keep mistletoe, poinsettas and holly berries away as they can be toxic if ingested.

Check your lights before plugging in for frayed wires or bad sockets. Make sure you use a sturdy ladder on a flat surface before hanging outdoor lights and garlands.

Clean your oven before the holiday baking begins. Lots of grease can build up and cause a fire.

Keep an eye on candles when lit, and make sure to blow out when you are not in the room. This can avoid household fires.

Happy Holidays!

 Small things can get lost in the busyness of the holiday season. Thanks for the reminders!

Lori, we'll have to follow your tips to get ready ourselves.  Would not have thought to check the oven, but it may need a cleaning.  Thx.
