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 Lexington Park, there are a lot of dangerous risks to consider. Things can boomerang out of control even when taking all of the necessary precautions when you set off small fireworks. There is a real danger of not only personal injury but property damage whenever you combine fire and explosives.
On the report of 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. Altogether, the NFPA considers that fireworks cause $43 million in property damage each year.
In that you are a property owner, you have to be worried about your Lexington Park tenants lighting fireworks on or near your rental homes. Since it is understandable for us to know why they want to, the information and statistics alone are a persuasive rationale to communicate to your tenants about not deploying fireworks on your rental property. One strategy to get them to comply with your entreaty can be to offer them information on firework safety and the risks involved.
Be that as it may, if it doesn’t work then 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 Gold, we have the best interests of your tenants and your rental property in mind. We can attend to any queries or issues your tenants may have about firework use and take care of any correlated problems that may occur. When it comes to the well-being and safety of your real estate investment and your tenants, you must have the kind of care and competence that we can provide.
