Every year, I see photos of friends and family on social media who have gone out to cut down their Christmas tree to beautifully decorate in their home for the season. However, having a real tree comes with a couple of safety guidelines to keep in mind in order to keep your home safe from a potential fire. According to the National Fire Protection Association, an average of 210 homes have a Christmas tree fire per year.
Evergreen Elf is a fun new tool that can be used to keep your home and family safe this Christmas season. If you have ever had a real Christmas tree, you know it can be a hassle to make sure it doesn’t get dry. Checking the water level is challenging once you have presents under the tree. Evergreen Elf has an audio and visual alert so you know when your tree needs to be watered. No more shuffling presents around or sticking your hand in dirty water!
With a busy holiday season just days away, this is a great way to have one less thing to worry about. Remember, a dried out Christmas tree is a huge fire risk. The NFPA also states that these fires have caused $16.2 million in direct property damage annually.
