Be Safe This Christmas, Hire a Pro to Hang or Install Your Holiday Lights
With so many outdoor lighting options, along with the growing tendency to have a more striking holiday light display on your home, this has created a high demand for professional assistance with common residential Christmas light displays. The reason people are turning to a professional is due to a risk of injuries by homeowners who would otherwise install these holiday lights themselves.
Injuries Related to Holiday Light Installation on the Rise
Injuries and visits to emergency rooms are growing as a result from homeowners performing their own holiday light and Christmas décor installations.
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) conducted a three year study and reported that 17,465 individuals were treated in emergency rooms for holiday decorating falls alone. About 43% of those injuries were caused by falls from a ladder! This amounts to about an average of 5,822 injuries per holiday season. It is important to note that this number only includes people who sought medical treatment at an emergency room. It is estimated that the true number of injuries is substantially higher; perhaps two or three times this number.
The evolution of technology has brought us icicle lights, LED lights, and motion lights. As a result this has brought us light displays like we’ve never seen before.
Improvements in these products resulted in an increase in the complexity of light types, maximum wattage, and GFCI safety, just to name a few. For years, commercial businesses and public holiday display events have hired trained professionals to ensure the safety of the public.
Regrettably, homeowners have lagged behind this trend, mostly due to the lack of availability of professionals who offer residential holiday light hanging services in Springfield at a reasonable rate.
Hanging Holiday Lights is Time Consuming, Inconvenient, and a Hassle
Let’s face it. Beautiful holiday light displays are a wonderful way to enjoy the holidays with family, neighbors, and friends.
But when the DIY’s time is spent hanging lights, rechecking connections, weatherproofing outlets, fixing burnt out bulbs, etc., the family is neglected. Aren’t holidays a time to celebrate with family, friends, or significant others?
By hiring a professional installer, the backbreaking, detailed, intricate job of hanging lights is left to the pro while you enjoy all that the holidays offer.
