Richmond, VA (PRWEB) November 14, 2014
Outdoor Lighting Perspectives (OLP) of Richmond is offering local homeowners outdoor holiday lighting safety tips to keep the season safe.
“Richmond embraces the holiday season with lights each and every year,” says Erin Zide, owner of Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Richmond. “With many homeowners going outside to install their outdoor holiday décor, we want to remind everyone of simple safety tips to prevent any unnecessary accidents."
This season, OLP reminds homeowners to:
1. Check the packaging on your string lights. String lights have been used for outdoor décor for years, but not all are made for outdoor use and could cause safety issues if used incorrectly.
2. Don’t use nails while hanging lights. Nails should never be used in the holiday lighting installation process as they can cause structural damage to the home. Instead, use light clips that clip to the roofline or eaves of the home.
3. Only use ladders on dry days. Moisture on the ground and shoes can result in a slippery ladder that can cause falls. Make sure a partner is on hand to hold the ladder in place.
To celebrate the season, Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Richmond is giving away a 30’’ battery operated wreath to one winner via their Facebook page. People can enter to win by liking them on Facebook.
