Happy Holidays are Safe Holidays
With a little preparation, you can reduce the chance of experiencing a less-than-happy holiday season.
First, lower your chances of crime by keeping your home and vehicles safe from burglary. Don't leave items or packages visible in your car - and definitely don't leave packages sitting on your front porch. Ask trusted neighbors to grab your goodies if you aren't home when your delivery arrives. Heading out of town - or even just for the night? Leave a few lights on.
And when it comes to your holiday displays, stay safe by keeping your decorations distanced from heat sources like your fireplace or candles. Give your Christmas tree a deep drink of water regularly to avoid drying out - and turn its lights off before you head to bed. Indoor and outdoor lights should always be checked for frays and cord integrity before the season begins, too.

Deep Hard Surface Cleaning Prevents Premature Replacements
Being clean saves money! When removing impacted oil, grime, grease and water deposits that are embedded in your hard surfaces and grout, you aren't just making your home healthier and more attractive - you're saving money, too.
Your hard surfaces are highly alkaline, normally having a PH of around 12. The oily soils, which collect on your hard surfaces and grout, break down and become acidic - they actually eat away at your floors, counters, backsplashes and more! It's important to remove these soils to protect the integrity of your home and avoid premature replacement.
