Christmas Tree Fires

12/27/2017 (Permalink)

The most wonderful time of the year can also be the most common time for house fires.  A simple spark can turn a dry Christmas tree into flames in 12 seconds.  A Christmas tree fire can also engulf an entire room in flames in less than 30 seconds.  

Some tips to keep your wonderful time of the year emergency free: Make sure your tree is at least three feet from any heat source.  Fresh, watered trees are much less likely to catch fire.  Water your tree daily.   If you buy an artificial tree, make sure it’s labeled “fire resistant.”

Make sure that you have Fire/ smoke detectors and the have been properly installed and tested.

Have a safe and Happy Holiday Season from your SERVPRO Team.
