Christmas is just around the corner, and at Forrest Cleaning, we want to make sure you stay safe while hanging lights this season. When hanging lights by yourself, you should follow a few necessary steps to ensure you’re well protected.

Step 1: Grab your Christmas Lights and have them stored in a box or other easily accessible location.

Step 2: Take a walk around the area you will be hanging the lights and make sure there aren’t and safety hazards like wet spots, tree branches, and wiring.

Step 3: Identify a plan, and design your project from the home’s focal points.

Step 4:  Measure the area in which you want to hang the lights on. This will give you a better idea of how many light strains you may need.

Step 5: Identify a power source and make sure you have enough distance between the lights to the outlet to turn the lights on successfully.

Step 6: Take the lights out of the box to prepare your design. If you’re looking for a big display, you will want denser lights. Plug the lights in on the ground to make sure that none of them are broken. If a light is broken, you may not want to use the string.

Step 7: Light clips will allow you to attach the strains to your gutters and other exterior linings.

Step 8: If you’re using LED lights, you can connect up to 25 strains without a significant brightness issue. Start connecting the strains for longer light fixtures.

Step 9:  Start on the ground first and then work your way up to the top. If you’re decorating your house, you can start lighting the bushes and then work your way up to your gutters.

Step 10: Sit back and enjoy the wonderful view. 😊
