Why Hiring a Professional Holiday Lighting Installer is Important
Hiring a professional tree care company ensures your property will receive the utmost attention from a knowledgeable team of experts (read more here). While not often considered by homeowners, the same logic applies when you’re considering holiday lighting installation.
Much like so-called “professional” tree care companies, simply having a truck and a ladder does not provide homeowners with peace of mind regarding holiday lighting installation. There are many tricks of the trade, not to mention safety precautions, that need to be understood and applied to keep homes and the people who live in them safe throughout the process and the season.
Here are some benefits to hiring a professional for your holiday lighting installation.
Prevents damage to your home
SavATree’s licensed and trained professionals have all the equipment and expertise necessary for your customized project. SavATree uses commercial-grade clips and hangers, not nails and staples, to guarantee your home will not be damaged during installation and when the lights eventually come down. Unlike some installers, we do not leave clips and hangers as an unsightly eyesore for use the following year. Additionally, proper ladder protocols help prevent damage to the home’s exterior.
Avoids personal injuries
The Consumer Products Safety Commission (CPSC) estimates that 12,000 to 15,000 people end up in the emergency room caused by holiday decorating accidents, with falls from a ladder commonly reported. SavATree’s installers practice ladder and lift safety throughout the calendar year – skills needed and often overlooked when stringing holiday lighting throughout trees or along the front facia of a home. Additionally, most homeowners do not own the necessary equipment for installing holiday lighting, which is where most accidents occur.
Commercial grade equipment
Many homeowners believe that connecting dozens of stands of lights is a way to save time and money when decorating for the holidays. However, it’s important to remember the longer the strand, the more prone they are to failure, such as solder points, bulb issues, overheating, and tangles. Commercial grade lights feature 20-gauge wire, LED sealed bulbs for protection from the elements, and typically a maximum of 100 bulbs. Extension cords and timers are also commercial grade to safely handle the electrical draw generated from the LED displays.
Hassle-free from start to finish
One of the most significant benefits of hiring a professional for your holiday lighting installation is the ability to sit back and enjoy the holidays. SavATree will customize a holiday lighting display that fits your wishes and budget, and many times is installed in as little as a few hours (depending on the complexity). Best of all, we provide season-long maintenance to take the worry out of holiday decorating. And when the holidays are over? We’ll remove and store your decorations for the following year – leaving your home just the way we found it.
