One of the most daunting tasks of the holiday season is removing all of the holiday lights and décor and storing them. Often, to save time and out of sheer frustration, holiday supplies aren't put away as they should be. Proper storage ensures a longer life-span for lights and decorations and makes it much easier to use those supplies next year. Utilizing a professional installation service helps home and business owners to prolong the lifespan of your holiday supplies. Long Island Christmas and Holiday Light Installation Service shares four best practices for holiday lights and decoration storage.

1. Test during removal  Whether using a professional service or removing decorations yourself, it's always a best practice to ensure that lights and decorations are tested to see if they are in proper working order before storing them.  It makes no sense to waste space storing items that no longer work and adds to the workload next year when it's discovered that lights or décor need replacement. Professional installation services should test products during installation as well as during removal to ensure all supplies are in working order and any items that need replacing or are nearing the end of their lifespan are replaced for next year's use.

2. Store lights and décor in heavy-duty, commercial grade bins  Too often, people store holiday electrical equipment such as cords, lights, and timers in cardboard boxes or flimsy bins, in attics or garages. These supplies are vulnerable to moisture damage, rodent damage, and freezing temperatures, which can badly damage equipment. Moisture can damage electrical equipment causing potential fire risk and can cause decorations to become moldy. Rodents can chew on electrical cords which could cause a fire hazard as well. Ensure that supplies are organized and stored in heavy-duty bins that have fully-sealed tops and are strong enough to withstand stacking.

3. Utilize climate controlled storage Excess moisture can cause mold on decorations, deterioration of decorations, and can damage cords and other electrical equipment. Utilizing a climate controlled facility to store holiday gear will ensure a much longer life-span for those items. When using a professional installation service, ensure they offer climate controlled storage for holiday supplies.
