Decoration Safety Tips

December 12th, 2008 by flanews

The Florida Association of Realtors is trying to protect homeowners from decoration disasters. The association is asking people to double check their Christmas dcor to make sure it isnt flammable. They also are asking people to keep Mistletoe, holly berries and Christmas cactus away from pets and children. The plants and berries can be deadly if eaten. Association spokesman John Sebree said people should always remember to turn off Christmas lights and another electronic decorations when their away or asleep.

Frayed cords and lighting thats several years old and flickers from time to time, you may not think thats a big deal but if you happen to fall asleep at night and the lights are still on for the holidays, you dont want to wake up with smoke in the house and ruin that biggest investment that you will ever make, said Sebree.

The association is also reminding homeowners to check the batteries on their smoke detectors to avoid a disaster.
