How to avoid fire damage during the holidays

Christmas tree Happy Holidays!

SERVPRO cares about you, so here is some information you should remember. We are here to help, and we hope all this information is helpful to you during this holiday.


One of the most common reasons to start a fire this month is the Christmas trees. They must be correctly watered and put in a spot that may help not put you at risk of your property. 

If you leave the three dry out and live in a zone with a lot of natural lighting, it can cause an immediate disaster, going up in flames in a matter of seconds.

To avoid Christmas tree fires, SERVPRO has some tips for you and the safety of your commercial or residential property: Watered correctly, be careful with the lightning, and always make sure to turn off at night and remove heat sources close to the tree.


Candles are something to worry about every day. If you like to have a lot on your property, you must never forget to turn them off. Especially in November and December, families use to turn it on to make the space feel cozier and warm, but let's remember safety first, okay? 

Make sure at the end of your event and keep them away from flammable things, like ovens or Christmas trees. 


Before putting all your Christmas lights on, ensure they are in good shape and usable for this holiday; also, provide all the extension cords and other electrical wires that are explicitly labeled for outdoor use. 


We know it's the season to put out the most extensive effort in the kitchen, also the most risked season, since it's a cause of lots of fires in the process. 

Double-check when you have something in the oven. Then, when you finish, turn it off, and never leave any equipment unattended it may sound like a silly thing and tiny detail, but it could have more significant repercussions. 

In case of any emergency, SERVPRO is 24/7, every day, even on holidays!
