Halloween Fire Safety Tips for DeKalb, IL Residents
ServiceMaster by Skip wishes you a safe and fire-free Halloween in DeKalb, IL and nearby areas.
When it comes right down to it, Halloween is a uniquely bizarre holiday. No other holiday encourages people to disguise themselves as undead creatures and go begging door-to-door. Throw into the mix all the random acts of vandalism that accompany the observance of Halloween, and you’re left wondering why this holiday should be allowed to continue at all.
And that doesn’t even begin to touch on the potential for fire damage and smoke damage that can result from the candles that are inexplicably placed in all that hollowed-out gourd. So, first you waste perfectly good gourds, and then you put fire inside it and place the whole thing outside surrounded by a blanket of crisp, dry, flammable leaves. It’s a perfect storm of bad ideas.
All kidding aside, Halloween is a wonderfully eclectic holiday that blows a farewell kiss to autumn and offers a spooky handshake to winter. Nevertheless, fire damage and smoke damage due to jack-o-lanterns illuminated with candles is a very real concern. You should take steps to avoid fire damage and smoke damage to your home by clearing away all leaves within the vicinity of any “candle-crazed” pumpkins.
