When we remember the warm summer nights of our childhood, our memories usually consist of lighting sparklers and setting off colorful fireworks. A big part of summertime fun is the fireworks, yet for owners of single-family rental homes in Wake Forest, they come with dangerous risks. Things can quickly go south even though you took all the needed and necessary precautions when igniting small fireworks. There is a threat of real danger when it comes to personal injury and property damage should you mix fire and explosives.
As stated by the National Fire Prevention Association, fireworks caused 11,000 injuries and 4 deaths in 2016. On top of personal injury, the NFPA states 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 quite easy to envision how that develops: consider yourself one of the lucky ones if you have never come across a firework accidentally whirling underneath a parked car and undergone a moment of utter fright. On the whole, the NFPA roughly calculates that fireworks cause $43 million in property damage each year.
Because you are a property owner, you should be bothered about your Wake Forest tenants lighting fireworks on or near your rental homes. Even though we can comprehend why they might want to, the statistics alone are a powerful basis to clarify why you don’t want your tenants to use fireworks on your rental property. One course of action in order to prevail on them to carry out your request can be to offer them information on firework safety and the risks involved.
If that doesn’t convey the impression that it’s 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.
