Having bright and twinkling lights hanging from the roof and trees enhances the magical feel of the holiday. Summer 2019 has just begun, so why are we writing about Christmas lights? Because the holidays will be here quicker than you think and planning these things now can make the typical busy time, well less busy. And since most homeowners are adults with a full plate of life, i.e. jobs, kids, and other responsibilities that come along, pre-planning can be a saving grace.
Okay, so all that makes sense, but why should you hire a professional holiday decorating services to hang your lights? Consider it an investment in having a Merry Christmas. Or if you insist on doing it yourself, maybe you enjoy it and have won neighborhood awards for “the best-decorated yard”, maybe you could hire a professional to hang lights for an elderly person or that single mom down the street.
Hanging lights may be a trivial thing in your mind, especially to pay somebody to do it. Here, we offer the following supporting reasons why you should do just that.
- It’s A Time Saver
Hanging Christmas lights is not an easy and small task. Depending on how extravagant you get with your holiday decorating, it can take up an entire weekend. Is that really something you look forward to doing after a full week of work?
You know how busy the holiday season can get. Between shopping and visiting, holiday lunches and parties, school events, and more wouldn’t the service of residential Christmas decorators make it all easier?
By hiring professional holiday light decorators to hang your Christmas lights on your home, you’re making it easier for you to enjoy the things you want to do the most. And for a business, hiring a service to hang lights on your business is saving you money by keeping your employees, or you, doing what makes you money.
- It’s Safer
Who wants to start their holiday season in the ER and with a cast on an arm or leg? Or even worse? The perfect recipe for a possible disaster is a ladder and a rooftop. Or maybe you have a fear of heights but didn’t know that until you’re stuck on the roof for hours.
More than 30 million American experience back pain today. Why suffer from this, or other physical ailments, when you can hire the services of professional holiday light decorators to do the job? Experienced and professional residential Christmas decorators will have the proper safety equipment and tools to get the job done right, and safely.
- They’ll Look Perfect
Using professional holiday decorating services to hang your Christmas lights will result in that perfect Christmas look that we all want for our homes. And for a business, having a professional service hang the lights will give your business a professional look too.
- Avoiding Possible Fire Hazards
There is no way to get around stringing Christmas lights without using extension cords. But what kind of extension cord and how many can make the difference between being safe and being a fire hazard. Using the everyday type of extension cord is never recommended because they are not made for outdoor use.
Business and residential Christmas decorators will have their own supply of extension cords, all of which are rated for outdoor use. This minimizing their liability as well as minimizes the risk for your home or business. By hiring professional holiday light decorators, you can have peace of mind knowing that your home, your business, and those inside are safe.
- Festive With Flexibility
Homeowners that want the festive look for the holidays can spend hundreds, even thousands of dollars on decorations. And after a few years of the same look, they spend more money to change or update the look. With holiday decorating services though, many furnish the decorations and offer package deals to choose from. Select a color theme if you want and change it next year so that your holiday décor is never the same-old-same-old boring look. Or if you like the consistency, they will know exactly what you want year after year and the expense of keeping it looking bright and festive will be theirs because they are adding to or replacing their own inventory.
Overall Considerations When Hiring a Professional
Like any other job that you hire out to a professional, you want to verify they are a qualified business that is licensed and insured. Because these people will be on your roof, if they were to have an accident, you don’t want it to fall back to your homeowner’s insurance.
And ask for the most recent references they have, then contact those references. If you aren’t sure where to find a professional service, ask your neighbors, co-workers, and family members if they have one that they recommend. Shop the services so that you get not just the most for your money, but the best service possible.
