The holidays are a time when we decorate our homes and literally deck the halls with extra lights and other flammable materials.  Thus the holidays are also the busiest time of the year for your local firefighters.  All of the lights that are strung on both the outside and inside of your Lexington or Centerville home can be a potential fire hazard.  Before switching on your lights it is very important to follow some safety tips:

1. If you decide to put up a real Christmas tree, it is very important to keep it watered.  A dry Christmas tree can easily catch fire from an electrical short in your Christmas lights.  Fire Safety tests have show that a tree can become completely engulfed in flames in seconds if the conditions are right.  Also by keeping it watered you can preserve its freshness. 

2. Check each strand of lights you install to make sure that neither the cord nor the sockets are damaged in any way.  Make sure to check for damaged plugs and connections.

3. After checking over your lights and ensuring that they are not damaged make sure to plug them in and to replace any burnt out bulbs with a bulb of the correct wattage.

4. When hanging lights, make sure to use insulated hooks to prevent shorts.  Never use nails, screws or tacks to hang your lights as they could potentially damaged the wiring.

5. Make sure that the plug ends of the lights are not laying on the ground.  If they are on the ground, water or debris can damage the cords causing them to short out.

6. Make sure to plug your lights into a GFCI protected outlet.  This will prevent further damage if a short is detected.

7. When purchasing new lights make sure that they have been UL listed.  This means they have passed rigorous laboratory testing for safety.

8. Make sure outside lights are rated to be used outdoors.

9. If you must use an extension cord, make sure to properly secure it to prevent any sort of tripping hazard.

10. Do not leave lights on when you are sleeping or away from home. 

11. Make sure your lights are plugged into a circuit that isn't already being exhausted by other electrical components.

12. Finally, when storing the lights for the year, make sure to put them into a hardened container to prevent any possible damage to them while they are in storage.

By following these safety guidelines and using common sense you can prevent electrical fires and damage to your house during the holiday season.

Garden grow lights can be necessary if you want to have successful indoor vegetable gardens or herb gardens. By not using garden grow lights you may cause your plants to become spindly, lose their leaves and fail to bloom or set fruit.

Workers compensation attorneys as we know them today did not exist more than 100 years ago. The history of workman's compensation goes back thousands of years, to the time of Hammurabi and his Code. But the rise of the workman's compensation lawyer did not come about until the development of a common law in the late Middle Ages.

If you want to upgrade the electrical system of an old home, consider an electrical renovation project. But, ensure that the licensed electrical contractor complies with the 2015 Ontario Electrical Safety Code. Hiring an expert will ensure that you avoid code violations, if any.

On the off chance that you choose to set up a genuine Christmas tree, it is imperative to keep it watered. A dry Christmas tree can without much of a stretch burst into flames from an electrical short in your Christmas lights. Fire Safety tests have demonstrate that a tree can turn out to be totally inundated on fire in seconds if the conditions are correct. Likewise by keeping it watered you can save its freshness.
