Christmas decorations safety tips

Even your Phoenix Electrical contractor likes to go overboard when decorating for the holidays. I have some tips to help keep you and your family safe this season.  My first tip is if you have a live tree; please remember to add water to the tree stand daily to avoid a fire hazard. All outdoor electric lights and decorations should be plugged into circuits protected by ground fault circuit interrupters. Electrical cords should never be pinched by furniture, and never ran under rugs. My last tip is to always turn off, unplug and extinguish all decorations when you retire for the night or leave your home.  Happy decorating and I hope you have a wonderful holiday season.
