Let the Fireworks Begin! But Be Careful

Be careful as you celebrate Independence Day this weekend! If not, you might be calling ServiceMaster by ARTec for fire restoration in Media, PA.

Technically, fireworks are illegal in Pennsylvania without a permit. Realistically, some Pennsylvania residents in Philadelphia, Media, West Chester, Ardmore, and surrounding communities are going to figure out how to obtain fireworks and light them off, regardless of the law.

Fireworks are a time-honored tradition in Pennsylvania and nationwide. Sure, fireworks were originally invented by the Chinese, but America is a melting pot, and it’s easier to melt things with fire, so we adopted fireworks as our own.

As you prepare to celebrate the birth of our nation by blowing up a small portion of it, you should remember to at least pretend to observe some rules of caution. If not, instead of calling out “Ooo!” and “Ahh!”, you’ll be yelling for fire restoration in Media, PA from ServiceMaster by ARTec.

For example, keep in mind that fireworks tend to be highly flammable. They burn. They explode. They’re hot, really hot, and usually somewhat, if not totally dangerous. Sure, they’re also ridiculously fun, but that fun carries with it certain responsibilities.

Presumably, you don’t want your house to burn down, unless you’re plotting a lucrative insurance scheme. If that’s the case, we don’t want to know about it. As a rule, you should ignite and enjoy your fireworks a safe distance from your home. Even the most mundane of fireworks, such as sparklers, burn extremely hot and can cause injury and fire damage if they’re not monitored and used correctly. And, fire damage restoration can be ruinously expensive, even when it’s relatively modest. Fire damage also carries with it the possibility of water damage, because you have to put a fire out somehow, and water is typically your best and most available resource.

In the end, if you’re not adequately careful with fireworks, you could end up with a house that’s suffered the horrible trifecta of flaming disaster: fire damage, smoke damage, and water damage. If you’re not cautious, that little bit of fireworks fun may end-up putting a considerable damper on your Independence Day celebration.
