Holiday lighting is beautiful but putting them up is often a different story. When it comes to the many obstacles of decorating your property, safety tops the list. But that's not the only challenge property owners face when it comes to installing outdoor holiday decorations. They also are time-consuming to install and remove, difficult to repair, and require ample storage space.

If decorating your property this holiday season sounds daunting, don't worry. There are professionals here in Louisville, KY who can handle all of this for you, giving you more quality time with friends and family.

1. Safety

While beautiful and festive, putting up holiday decorations can also involve potential safety risks. According to the Consumer Product Safety Commission, approximately 17,500 consumers visited the ER across the US due to holiday lighting and decorating-related injuries in 2018. Slip and falls were the most commonly reported injuries, but there are other safety concerns as well.

There's also snow, ice, and slush to contend with in the region. Fortunately, many professionals possess the equipment and deploy safety tactics to ensure no one gets hurt in the cold and ice this year.

2. Professional Holiday Lighting Will Save You Time

Putting up outdoor holiday lighting and decorations is time-consuming. Gone are the days of unpacking and installing lighting in under an hour. Today's decorations can get complex, sometimes requiring several hours of installation time.

Working with a professional holiday lighting company saves you time and energy. Since time is especially valuable at this time of the year, that's a win-win for everyone.

You can use the time that professional holiday lighting saves you to spend with family or unwind in the comfort of your own home.

3. You'll have someone to call if your holiday lights need to be repaired throughout the season.

Let's face it, life happens, and occasionally things will break. And yes, this includes those precious holiday decorations. While repairs can be as simple as fixing a blown bulb, they could also be more time-consuming.

Of course, urgent repair issues often require immediate attention. However, these repair problems often occur at the wrong times. Whether it's a matter of something needing repair or replacement, it's nice to know you don't have to handle it alone. That's a benefit of working with a professional holiday lighting company.

4. Professional Holiday Lighting Decoration Companies Can Take Your Lights Down

Once the holiday season ends, it's time to take down the holiday lights. Taking them down can sometimes be more challenging than putting them up. The process requires the dedicated attention of whoever's taking the decorations down. Between taking the lights down without issue and leaving the trees and landscaping intact while removing decorations, there's much to consider.

The New Year also happens to be a busy time of the year, which means you may not be home to remove the lights as soon as you may like. Fortunately, not only can professional companies put them up, but they will take them down for you. Some will even do it while you're away.

5. Many professional companies store your lights for you during the off-season.

After taking down your lights, it's time to wrap and store them. But if you're like most residents, garage and attic space is scarce. Of course, you could push a few things aside to make a little extra space for your lights. However, decorations and lighting are often fragile. So, you want to store your decorations without damaging your lighting.

Some professional companies will not only take your lighting down but can even label and store them for you. Meaning, you don't have to worry about packing or storage challenges because once they take it down, the decorations are out of sight and mind until next year.
