How to Safely Take Down Your Holiday Landscape Lighting
The holiday season has officially come to a close, which means you probably have weekend plans to put away your Christmas decorations and take down your outdoor lights. Although you may be eager to pull out the ladder and get started, remember that taking down holiday lights can be a dangerous activity, so exercise caution. As landscape lighting professionals, Nixa Lawn Service knows how to stay safe on the rooftop – so before you put away your lights, be sure to review our safety tips.
Plan for Good Weather
When you are planning to take down your holiday landscape lighting, plan for good weather. Getting on your roof on a cold, windy, or snowy day will make the job more difficult and increase your chances of falling, tripping, and injuring yourself. We understand that it can be a little difficult to find a nice day in January, so you may have to wait a little longer than planned to take down your lights. Although you may want to put your holiday decorations away as soon as possible, you will thank yourself later for waiting.
Plan for Daylight
To decrease your risk of injury, daytime is the best opportunity to take down your holiday landscape lighting. Of course, with a busy schedule and few sunny hours in the day, it can be difficult to find the time. Although you may be tempted to take your lights down one evening after work, wait until a day off or a weekend to give yourself the most amount of light.
Wear the Right Clothing
When you take down your holiday landscape lighting, wear some protective clothing. With rough singles and sharp, metal gutters, your roof is a hostile place. To decrease your chances of scraping and cutting yourself, be sure you wear some boots, gloves, and long sleeves.
