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. Fireworks is a large chunk of summertime fun, however, for owners of single-family rental homes in Woodstock, they also pose a dangerous risk. Even if you take all the necessary precautions, and even though they are just small fireworks, things can still backfire. If you ever put together fire and explosives, there may be a real danger of not only property damage but the personal injury also.
As stated 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 cinch to conceptualize how that takes place: if you’ve never undergone a moment of sheer terror seeing a firework mistakenly zoom under a parked car, you’re one of the lucky ones. All things considered, the NFPA gauge that fireworks cause $43 million in property damage each year.
Seeing as you are a property owner, you need to be anxious about your Woodstock tenants lighting fireworks on or near your rental homes. While we can sympathize with tenants, the particulars alone are convincing grounds when speaking to your tenants about not setting off 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. At Real Property Management East Cobb, we have the best interests of your tenants and your rental property in mind. 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. When it comes to the welfare and safety of your real estate investment and your tenants, you are in need of the kind of solicitousness and skill that we possess.
