Homeowners in Calgary increasingly entrust the hanging and takedown of Christmas lights to professional light installation services.
This is for two main reasons:
It frees up your time
It’s Christmas. It’s time to start spending some quality family time. There are better things to be doing with this time than scaling ladders and hanging lights.
Choosing a dependable light hanging service can make your life a lot simpler, freeing up your time to do the Christmas shopping, hang the decorations inside the house, or hunt for a nice plump turkey.
Or maybe you have to work right up until Christmas Day and you don’t have the time to hang the lights yourself?
Either way, by hiring outside help, your home will still look fabulous for the holiday season but without any effort from you.
It keeps you out of ER
An emergency room in a hospital is no place to spend Christmas time. Homeowners can and do suffer accidents when hanging or taking down Christmas lights.
In fact, one study by the CDC in the U.S. examined the number of people treated in emergency departments in U.S. hospitals as a result of falls during the 2000 -2003 holiday period. The number was estimated at 17,465 people treated directly for holiday-decorating-related falls – and 43 percent of injuries were caused by falls from ladders.
Working at heights should be left to the professionals with the right experience and the right equipment for the conditions here. Homeowners, sloping roofs, ladders, and icy conditions can be a poor combination that may lead to a dangerous fall.
