The team at Marchetti & Sabatelli Associates, Inc. knows that many people look forward to the holiday season all year long. Once again it has come time for festive gatherings and décor, but the experts at Marchetti & Sabatelli want to remind local residents how these seasonable events and delights can lead to potentially costly claims on people’s NJ homeowners insurance policies. Therefore, the insurance experts would like to offer the following tips on how local residents can ensure that they have a safe and happy holiday season:
- While it may not seem too early to put up the Christmas tree, these should only be left up in the home for two weeks, even if they are watered regularly. Indoor trees can easily dry out and become a serious fire hazard. Artificial trees should be flame resistant since they will be surrounded by lights and other electrical devices.
- Never leave lit Advent, Hanukkah or Kwanzaa candles unattended and ensure that they are kept away from loose fabrics like curtains and highly flammable furniture such as couch cushions.
- While it may be tempting to light up the neighborhood with multiple power adapters and extension cords, doing so could result in an electrical fire and subsequent NJ homeowners insurance claim.
- Individuals who are hosting holiday parties should keep close watch to ensure that none of their guests consume too much alcohol and then drive home, since this could create a liability issue.
The team at Marchetti & Sabatelli Associates is committed to protecting its clients, whether it’s with comprehensive NJ homeowners insurance or various other policies in New York, Connecticut, Pennsylvania and Florida. This year, the insurance experts encourage all homeowners to consider holiday safety measures so that they can continue to spread cheer without encountering any unpleasant surprises.
