5 Frightening Tips to Keep Your Home Safe for Halloween
Halloween is tomorrow, and we don't know what's more fun; seeing the little trick-or-treating boys and ghouls excitedly flitter from home to home, the insanely spooky Halloween decorations, or the creative costumes. Probably just snacking on all those treats! But as much fun as the spooky holiday festivities can be, it's important to be safe so you can fully enjoy all the activities. So here are 5 frightening tips to keep your home safe for Halloween this year.
1.) All Clear: If you're choosing to stay in and pass out treats this year, Las Vegas property managers recommend that you make sure the pathway from your sidewalk to your front door is free from obstructions or tripping hazards that could potentially harm little trick-or-treaters. Halloween decorations are fun, but make sure those tombstones and pumpkins don't block your visitor's path.
2.) Yard Maintenance: Even though it's recommended that trick-or-treaters stay on the sidewalks, in their excitement many of them still choose instead to cut across lawns. So to be proactive, store away any potential hazards that could harm others. Removing rakes, dead branches, tools, or water hoses out of your yard will help better ensure guest safety.
3.) Stowaway Pets: Your little dog or cat may normally be sweet, but the loud sounds of laughter, activity, or the doorbell ringing could send your favorite four legged friend into a frenzy. In some cases, the constant opening and closing of your front door could cause scared animals to dart out the door which could hurt them or others. So whether you're hosting a Halloween party or entertaining trick-or-treaters at your door, Las Vegas property management companies suggest keeping your pets confined in a separate room or safely out back to keep them and your guests protected.
4.) Fire Safety First: There's a reason October is National Fire Safety Month. If you're hosting a Halloween party or a haunted house, be sure to check your smoke alarms and fire extinguisher to make sure they're in good working order. Also, paper decorations should be kept away from open flames or lit jack-o-lanterns.
5.) Light it up: Using lit candles inside your jack-o-lanterns or to line your walk-way? Consider using glow sticks, sting lights, or LED tea lights instead. Excited trick-or-treaters can accidentally knock over lit candles or lanterns potentially injuring themselves or others.
