Decorate Safely This Christmas

05 December 2016

In the lead up to Christmas decorating is definitely one of the more enjoyable activities to get prepared for the big day. 
However, there are a few steps you should take to ensure you keep your house safe this holiday season.

- Check any lights have the correct fuses (full details should be on the box)
- Check your lights are not damaged or broken if they've been stored away
- If any bulbs are blown replace them to avoid overheating
- Switch off any lights before you go out or to sleep
- Don't let light bulbs touch anything flammable - eg. paper
- Don't overload sockets or link up extensions leads
- Ensure all outdoor lights are plugged in indoors
- Don't attach decorations to radiators or anything that gets too hot
- Never use lights outdoors unless they are designed for such use

Stay safe, and have a great Christmas!
