No Fuss Lights – Your Christmas Lighting Specialists

It’s already been a December to remember at No Fuss Lights, and we haven’t even gotten to Christmas yet! Our designers and installers have been crisscrossing the Houston area hanging holiday lights, decorating doors and fences, and making sure that we don’t rest until every home we visit looks bright, cheery, and spectacular!

In fact, it’s becoming readily apparent that we at No Fuss Lights have underestimated our popularity.

The demand for our services in 2015 has been unparalleled in the history of our company. Phone calls and online requests for quotes are coming in to our office as fast as we can respond to them.

Because No Fuss Lights is a small business, we sometimes don’t have the manpower to simultaneously speak with customers, provide on-site cost estimates, and install holiday lights at homes as quickly as we would like. So if you have contacted No Fuss Lights this holiday season, we humbly ask for your patience if we do not respond to your inquiry immediately. Please rest assured that No Fuss Lights is doing everything possible to serve all of our current and potential customers during this busy time of year.

We would like to extend our heartfelt thanks to the entire Houston-area community for their strong support and patronage throughout 2015. And we wish you and your families a Merry Christmas and a joyous and blessed holiday season.

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 CreditCards.com 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!
