Halloween is here! Soon you will hear knocking on your door, the bell ringing and footsteps heading up and down your pathways all in the pursuit of tricks and treats! But that doesn't mean you can simply fill your candy bowl and switch on the exterior lights of your Eastern Panhandle West Virginia home! There are a few tasks you might consider taking on to be sure your home is fully prepared for trick or treaters this Halloween.
Kable Team Realty has included four important steps to take to avoid any spooky mishaps over the next few days— After all, your jack-o-lanterns may not be enough to light the way for your Halloween guests!
Light up your pathways
Your Jefferson or Berkeley County home should be bright enough for trick or treaters to approach. Now, that doesn't mean you need to install new light fixtures just for the occasion, but you can use luminaries, tea lights and glowing pumpkins to light the way.
Remove yard obstacles
With an influx of visitors sprinting to your door this Halloween, you don't want anything getting in their way! Take care to remove any obstacles like sticks, branches, extension cords or even cracks in the cement. If you can't easily remove an obstacle—for instance, driveway or sidewalk cracks—simply block access to the area.
Stay away from flammable decor
Halloween is a fun holiday for which to deck your Eastern Panhandle home, but steer clear of flammable decorations. Paper items, cornstalks or even dried hay can wreak more havoc than you realize. If you must use them, keep them far away from any hot lights or flames. You can also use LED lights to illuminate your pumpkins instead of open flame candles.
Keep your pets calm
The ding dong of doorbells throughout the night can send your pets into a tizzy. Not to mention the costumes in which kids will be dressed! Keep your pets in a safe and secure area during trick or treating hours where they can remain calm and comfortable.
