When people imagine holiday parties, their recollections often include lighting sparklers and igniting vibrant fireworks. Fireworks can be a big part of the holiday fun, but for Pillager owners of rental homes, they can also be a dangerous risk. Even when dealing with all vital safety measures, and even if just igniting small fireworks, things can still go amiss. Whenever you mix fire and explosives, there is a real possibility of not only personal injury but damage to the property as well.
According to the National Fire Prevention Association, fireworks caused 11,000 injuries and 4 deaths in 2016. In addition to personal injury, the NFPA reports that fireworks start an average of 18,500 fires each year. 1,300 of those are structural fires and 300 are vehicle fires. It’s simple to visualize how that occurs: if you have never undergone a firework inadvertently shooting below a parked vehicle and known a moment of utter dread, consider yourself one of the lucky ones. All told the NFPA estimate that fireworks cause $43 million in property damage each year.
As a property landlord in Pillager, you have good reasons to be concerned about your tenant’s lighting fireworks in, on, or within reach of your rental properties. While we can certainly recognize why they might want to, the numbers alone are a strong argument to speak to your renters about not igniting fireworks at your rental buildings. One way to convince them to honor your request might be to offer them information on firework safety and the risks involved.
If that isn’t effective, you need a property management company who grasps the risks of fireworks and that can help your occupants comprehend the potential danger. At Real Property Management Deluxe, we have the best interests of both tenants and your rental buildings in mind. We can handle any queries or concerns your tenants may have about proper firework usage and handle any connected obstacles that may appear.
