With Thanksgiving around the corner, the calendar is already crowded for busy New Jersey homeowners. Only a few short weeks remain to prepare for out-of-town guests and gala holiday parties. To ensure your home is safe, bright and convenient for visiting friends and family, organize your holiday preparations with a pre-decorating checklist.
Festive occasions call for bright and sparkling lighting. Dust lamps and light fixtures, including the bulbs. Make sure lights are turned off and bulbs are cool before touching them. Chrystal chandeliers can be cleaned in place using a ladder, soft cloth and spray bottle. For fixtures in vaulted ceilings, consider installing a light lift system that lets you lower the chandelier for easier access and decorating. Adding a dimmer switch for lights in your den or living room lets you tone down the brightness as guests settle in for soft music and cozy reflection by the fire.
When you’re busy with party preparations, you won’t want houseguests underfoot. Prepare in advance with a few furniture rearrangements that will improve the function of your rooms as visitors arrive.
As you prepare for houseguests and holiday gatherings, do you have enough outlets for lamps and small appliances? Plug strips and extension cords can become fire hazards when they’re overloaded. You still have time to expand or upgrade the electrical service of your NJ home before holiday decorating and activities are in full swing! Call 908-735-6218 to speak with a Maglio team member or schedule an electrical inspection or service online. We look forward to serving you, year-round!
