As always, we here at want you to have a safe and happy celebration. Here are some tips homeowners for you to have a smooth day:

  • Fire Alarms: Be sure your fire alarm is working perfectly. Change the batteries if you have not done so recently. Even cleaning your alarms by vacuuming dust out of them can be helpful as well.
  • Candle safety: Candles are a nice touch to the holiday atmosphere, be sure you keep these caution tips in mind; make sure they are secure in a proper holder and will not tip over. That they are not located by flammable decorations, or in any reach of pets and children. Most importantly, make sure to not have lit candles on or by the Christmas tree.
  • Fireplaces and Mantels: Do not leave a lit fireplace unattended! Also be sure to remove any flammable decorations, like stockings, if you plan on lighting the fireplace. Finally, resist the urge to burn used wrapping paper in your fireplace. Wrapping paper has floating embers that can escape your chimney and set your roof, or a neighbor’s roof, on fire.
  • Lights: We love seeing houses decorated and lite up during this time of year. Though, if you will not be home, turn off your lights before leaving. If you have them set on a timer, make sure the timer is working properly!

Have a very merry and safe Christmas day homeowners and Staten Islanders!
