SERVPRO Christmas Tree SERVPRO of Victoria is always here to help our community!

The National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) states that nearly 30% of U.S. home fires begin with Christmas trees occurring in January.  Christmas tree fires have been responsible for property damage.  A live Christmas tree is a high risk of fire especially post-holiday season.  The tree continues to dry out over time leaving it to become more flammable causing serious fire risk to your property. It is important to take the time to recycle your tree.  Here are some notable tips to help take down the tree to prevent any property damage:

  • Don’t leave the tree in your home longer than necessary.
  • Grip the area on the plug when unplugging electrical decoration.  Pulling the cord can harm the wires causing a risk of shock or electrical fire.
  • Check with your local community when trees are being picked up and recycled.

Your safety is important to us here at SERVPRO of Victoria.  If you experience any type of fire damage do not hesitate to call our team (361) 573-6000.  Our team is here to help you when disaster strikes.
