Let us help you be the Ghostest with the mostest this Halloween season. Halloween Safety Checklist - 6 Tips for Homeowners
It’s that time of year again. The days are getting shorter, the nights are getting colder, and the first frost is on the way. For kids, October is a magical time of year when they get to Trick or Treat dressed up as their favorite ghoul, super hero, or pop culture icon. Many homeowners like to get in on the Halloween fun too by transforming their yard and house into a scene straight out of a horror movie.
Whether you're going all out this Halloween or are just sticking to the basics, making sure that your property is safe for Trick or Treaters is essential. Poorly lit walkways, open flames, or loose railings are just a few potential hazards that could turn dangerous once hundreds of kids show up at your doorstep. Taking a few simple precautions beforehand can make all the difference. Here’s what we recommend:
- Make sure all outdoor lights are working properly; replace any bulbs that are burnt out.
- Install battery-powered lamps on your walkway to provide extra light for trick-or-treaters.
- Don't use open flames in your jack-o-lanterns; battery-powered lights provide a great alternative.
- Ensure all railings are securely anchored and free of splinters.
- Be on the lookout for rotted wood on your front porch/stairs; replace/fix if necessary.
- If you're using outdoor extension cords to power lights and/or decorations, ensure that all cords are securely taped down and do not pose tripping hazards
There you have it! Just following these simple steps will help make your property safe for hordes of candy-craving trick-or-treaters. Feel free to contact us if you need help with these or any other project. Our skilled and experienced craftsmen will make short work of your home improvement checklist. Have a safe and fun Halloween!

Ace Handyman Services Pittsburgh North teams up with Paws across Pittsburgh
We recently had the opportunity to help out a wonderful local organization Paws Across Pittsburgh improve a new location. One of our own Mary G has been a foster for many years and has a close relationship with Paws Across Pittsburgh. We jumped at the chance to help out and were able to knock off a few items of their to do list. We painted, fixed some bathrooms to make more accessible, and upgraded some lights and fixtures. With out a doubt the best part of it all was spending time with the pets and the great crew that helps out. We look forward to the opportunity to go back to such a great partner and help out.
