When most of us recall past balmy summer nights, our memories are, as often as not, comprised of lighting sparklers and setting off colorful fireworks. Many people consider fireworks a big part of summertime fun, but for owners of single-family rental homes in Lawrenceville, there are a lot of dangerous risks to consider. Things can quickly go south even though you took all the needed and necessary precautions when igniting small fireworks. Whenever you combine fire and explosives, there is a possibility of real danger. This would affect not only personal injury but property damage too.
As maintained by the National Fire Prevention Association, fireworks caused 11,000 injuries and 4 deaths in 2016. As well as personal injury, the NFPA reveals 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 a piece of cake conceiving how that comes about: if you’ve never tried seeing a firework unintentionally whizz below a parked car and experienced a second of pure fear, you’re one of the lucky ones. On the whole, the NFPA roughly calculates that fireworks cause $43 million in property damage each year.
By being a property owner, it’s a good idea to be afraid of your Lawrenceville tenant’s lighting fireworks on or near your rental homes. Although it’s easy to understand why they would want to, the figures alone are a reasonable cause to discuss things with your tenants about not utilizing fireworks at the rental property. One possible means to persuade them to comply with your wishes could be to offer them information on firework safety and the risks involved.
If you think that isn’t working, you need a property management company who understands the risks of fireworks and can help your tenants understand the danger involved.

We can take care of any concerns or questions your tenants may have about firework use and cope with any corresponding doubts that may emerge.
