You are currently viewing 5 Fire Prevention Tips for the Holiday Season

Fire will not only raze your home or place of business, it will also take a tremendous amount of emotional toll on family members and employees. Fire damage can rake up to thousands of dollars in property repairs and may even cause more damage if not attended to immediately.

In addition to the heat and fire, the after-effects of smoke, including soot, debris, odor and ash, can cause surface discoloration throughout a building and damage to belongings if not treated immediately. There may also be substantial water damage caused by firefighting efforts. With ServiceMaster by PWF Pinellas’s rapid response, further damage can be prevented, especially when the holiday season starts.

To ensure you have a happy and safe holiday season this year, we’ve put together a collection of holiday safety tips. Some of them can be useful for fire prevention this Thanksgiving, too!

Use the fireplace with care.

Use candles safely.

Choose a safe artificial tree.

Turn off holiday lights when leaving.

Avoid unattended cooking.
