No Fuss Lights – Your Christmas Lighting Specialists

[ hana-code-insert ] 'video1' is not found

It’s just not Christmas without Christmas lights. They make everything more festive and fun.

Christmas Lights can also be a lot of work. Running to the store & fighting crowds to get low-quality Christmas lights that may or may not work is a hassle. Don’t even get us started on the job that is untangling and repairing the lights you may already be lucky enough to have.

When all that is said and done, you’ve still got to get on the ladder and install them – which is time-consuming, tiring and often dangerous. Once installed, a little wind or rain may tear your Christmas lights down and allow you to relive the experience all over again. At the end of it all, when the Christmas is over, it’s time to take them down and find a place to store them until you get to do this all again next Christmas.

Is this how you want to spend your time this Christmas?

Have Yourself a Merry Little ‘Accident-Free’ Christmas – Part Deux

We’ve already talked about the types of falling accidents that homeowners can suffer while hanging Christmas lights on their homes. But did you know that there are many other ways that people unintentionally ruin their holiday season?

This week, the 3rd annual Allstate Holiday Home Hazards poll was released, and it revealed some startling behaviors:

  • The majority of people (53%) admit to plugging too many electrical cords into a single outlet.
  • Approximately 29% of people revealed that they failed to water their Christmas tree for more than three days (which increases the possibility of a fire).
  • Roughly a quarter of respondents said they have fallen asleep or left their homes while candles (28%) or a fireplace fire (24%) were still burning.
  • More than seven in ten people surveyed who own fireplaces have not had them inspected and/or cleaned in the past year.
  • Roughly three out of every seven people confess to watching television or a movie while cooking instead of focusing solely on the food preparation.
  • Almost a third of respondents say they have left their home or dozed off while food was cooking on the stove or in the oven.
  • About 9% report that smoke or a fire has resulted in their home from a cooking mishap.

Let these figures serve as a reminder to be a little extra cautious this holiday season in order to protect your home and your family.

At No Fuss Lights, we pride ourselves not only on creating a beautiful light display for your home, but also ensuring that all of the power cords, connectors, and other components are installed with the utmost care and safety. There’s still time to make an appointment with No Fuss Lights to decorate your home and property before Christmas. Just fill out this form or call us at 281-809-7021 today!

Have Yourself a Merry Little ‘Accident-Free’ Christmas with No Fuss Lights!

There’s never a good time to suffer an injury; but it’s especially inconvenient during the holidays. That’s because your discomfort, pain, and/or restricted mobility are likely to impact your holiday activities and reduce your level of enjoyment during this magical season.

Some common types of accidents this time of year involve decorating your home or hanging up outdoor Christmas lights. A pair of studies performed by a Canadian hospital reveals some depressing statistics. Over the last decade, almost a thousand people have checked into Foothills Medical Centre in Calgary for Christmas-lights related injuries. And about 40 of these individuals had injuries at the top of the severity scale – including some who required nursing home care, others who went on life support, and even two who eventually died.

It’s true that Houstonians don’t have to deal with snow, ice, and other harsh winter conditions like many Canadians do when hanging their Christmas lights. However, the area’s relatively-temperate climate may lull some homeowners into a false sense of security when hanging lights or decorating – which can also prove to be dangerous.

The Consumer Product Safety Commission reports that more than ten thousand people in the U.S. visit emergency rooms due to mishaps from holiday decorating. ER docs report injuries ranging from fractured arm and leg bones to broken hips and necks. Some people even think it’s a good idea to enjoy some holiday “spirits” before getting up on a ladder to decorate – and often, the results are predictably bad.

One near-foolproof way to avoid holiday accidents is to entrust No Fuss Lights to not only hang your outdoor Christmas lights, but also to decorate other parts of your home and property with wreaths, bows, lighted figures, and other holiday accouterments. So make your holiday season healthy as well as happy by calling No Fuss Lights today at 281-809-7021 or filling out this form to make an appointment with their decorating specialists.

Because after all, there are few things more depressing than having people sign your cast at a holiday party.

How Early is Too Early For Hanging Christmas Lights?

This time of year, you hear this complaint all the time: “It’s too early to be thinking about Christmas!”

These Grinchy grumblers do have a point: America hasn’t even celebrated Thanksgiving yet, and people are already starting to see signs of Christmas (and may have even seen them prior to Halloween). So why focus on a holiday that’s still several weeks away?

From a retailer standpoint, the answer is easy: to increase profits. Stores start advertising and decorating for Christmas in November in the hopes that consumers will get into the holiday spirit early and spend more money.

There’s some merit to these motives: a National Retail Federation survey released this year indicates that two out of every five Americans begin their Christmas shopping early - before Halloween! And a survey reveals that 14% admit to shopping for holiday gifts in September.

What about hanging outdoor Christmas lights? When is it appropriate to hang them up?



On this point, opinions vary widely.  A poll conducted by TellWut in 2013 shows that about 27.5% of people wait til December to put up their holiday lights, while some 23.3% think it’s OK to hang them up in November.

The saddest part of that poll? More than 1/3 chose “I don’t” hang Christmas lights at all.

These people may not be aware of No Fuss Lights, who can take care of hanging lights for them. No Fuss Lights will design, install, maintain, and even remove Christmas lights from your home so you can focus on other holiday-related tasks (like shopping, for instance).

And it’s never too early to call No Fuss Lights to book an appointment for their qualified and experienced designers to come out to your home. Especially since other Houston-area “early birds” are filling up these appointment slots fast.

Whether you want to have holiday lights put on your home in November or December, No Fuss Lights will hang your Christmas lights on your schedule. So why wait? Call 281-809-7021 today or fill out this form here.

No Fuss Lights “Christmasizes” Stafford Centre

When it comes to bringing the joy and wonder of Christmas to the greater Houston area, no one in the world can do it quicker than Santa Claus himself – after all, he can drop off toys to all of the (good little) children’s homes in the area in just one night.

But after St. Nick, No Fuss Lights has to be a close second in terms of rapid “Christmasizing.” Why? Because the No Fuss Lights crew managed to decorate the Stafford Centre Performing Arts Theatre and Convention Center in less than 48 hours!

That’s right! No Fuss Lights secured the contract to adorn the performing arts center and the surrounding trees with holiday lights; and less than 48 hours later, all of the lights were up and shining brightly for the world to see. In case you’re keeping score, that’s over 40 light-wrapped trees and about three thousand feet of Christmas lights on the building itself!

No Fuss Lights is honored to serve the city of Stafford by decorating one of the finest performing arts venues in the Houston area. Given how fast No Fuss Lights was able to beautify the Stafford Centre, you can imagine how your own home will look after the skilled designers and lighting technicians work their magic – turning your house into the envy of the neighborhood!

Ten Things You Can Do Instead of Putting Up Christmas Lights

Do you really have the time or the inclination to struggle with ladders, bulbs, extension cords, and light strands this holiday season? Then why put yourself through all of that stress?

Here are ten things you could be doing instead:

1. Watch football, baseball, or hockey on TV. Face it – that’s how you really want to spend your weekend, right?

2. Binge watch. You know that TV series that debuted this fall that everyone raved about but you didn’t have time to watch? Go to your favorite on-demand service and watch all of the episodes all at once.

3. Winterize your car. Make sure it’s got enough antifreeze in it, and check the tires to make sure they’re properly inflated. You’ll need your vehicle to be in tiptop shape for those holiday errands and road trips.

4. Winterize your home. Check you smoke detectors, inspect your gas heaters, and wrap your pipes. It may not be super-fun, but it’s better than trying to check Christmas light bulbs to see which one on the strand isn’t working.

5. Do a crossword puzzle (or Sudoku). No matter the difficulty level, it’ll be easier than trying to unravel the Gordian-knotted Christmas lights that have been sitting in the attic for ten months.

6. Go outside and stroll/jog/walk the dog. It’s good exercise, it gets you outdoors, and you can chuckle each time you hear a neighbor curse while putting up his Christmas lights.

7. Spend time with your kids. You’ll have a lot more fun with them than you would if your leg is in a cast after falling off a ladder while hanging your Christmas lights.

8. Get started on your Christmas shopping early. Unless you enjoy searching for parking spaces and battling crowds at the mall because you waited til the last minute.

9. Go to a holiday show. That’ll get you in the Christmas spirit much quicker than hanging Christmas lights will.

10. Sleep. No explanation needed.

Instead of hanging the lights yourself, call the professionals at No Fuss Lights to handle the task for you. They’ll take care of all of the decorating, make your home the envy of the neighborhood, and take it all down after the holiday season is over.
