During the winter months pest control service sales are often lower than the rest of the year. Many companies look for opportunities to supplement their businesses during these times. A really great option during the winter is Christmas decoration installation.
Supplementing Your Slower Winter Months
Christmas light installation and holiday decoration might be an attractive option for your company during the Christmas season, and there are many reasons why. Not only does it provide increased sales, but it is also a great way to continue to give your crews work for 6 weeks prior to Christmas and several weeks after. Christmas is the most popular holiday in America and the favorite holiday of most people, but their least favorite part is cleaning up and putting away the decorations. There are many accidents related to pulling out, putting up and taking down Christmas decorations. In 2015 US News reported “In November and December of last year, an estimated 13,000 people were treated in emergency rooms around the country for injuries tied to holiday lights, Christmas trees, ornaments and other decorations, according to the CPSC.” They even recommended hiring out the work to be done, if possible.
As beautiful as Clark Griswold’s home was, and as much fun as he had, sometimes the decorating should be left up to the professionals! It’s too late to help Clark, but you can help others to not have blown fuses, tangled light strands, shut down the city power grid, and miss hours and hours of family time.
