It’s the time of year to decorate your home for the holidays and hang lights on your home to show your Christmas spirit. Decorating your home for the holidays is a big tradition for some families and taken quite seriously when contests arise between competitive neighbors. Decorating your home for the holidays usually involves a great deal more effort than most home owners realize. Hanging lights and other decorations takes a great deal of time and energy and if you are not careful in your planning can also be pretty dangerous. There are a few common mistakes that many home owners make when pulling out boxes of holiday lights for the house.
Don’t Hang Indoor Lights Outside!
One of the biggest mistakes made is when owners use indoor Christmas lights for the outside of their home. Using indoor lights may seem like a great idea, but in fact you are putting your home in great danger. Using indoor rated lights on the outside of your home is a perfect way to start a house fire. If you want your home flaming hot and burnt to a crisp this Christmas season then use indoor lights on the outside of your home!
How to Store Christmas Lights
If you want to make decorating the outside of your home for Christmas much easier, then be sure to store your holiday lights properly. Storing your holiday lights properly will ensure a much easier installation the following year. If lights are stored incorrectly, they have potential to get wet, which can damage your lights permanently. The best place to store your outdoor holiday lights is in an indoor closet. This will keep them dry, safe and organized so they are ready for next year’s festivities. Avoid keeping the lights in the attic or the basement, the extreme heat in these areas can ruin your lights and cause bulbs to break.
