There is more than cost to consider if you’re thinking about hiring help to decorate your home for the holidays.

This weekend is the most popular for setting up your light display and some homeowners are now considering hiring someone to do the work for them.

“I usually always did them myself until last year. I had my ladder up against a tree, a palm tree and I was at the very top and it fell down and I ended up sliding down the palm tree so I was lucky cause I only scratched myself and landed,” one homeowners said.

She got lucky walking away from that incident with just minor injuries. So when she heard her routine window and roof cleaner company, offered holiday services, she decided to let them take care of it.

But, what should you know before you hire someone to create your Christmas wonderland.

We spoke with Better Business Bureau and learned, while a license isn’t required for someone to hang lights, it is important to hire someone who is insured.

Otherwise, you could be liable for any injuries or damage that can occur on your property.

“We are fully licensed and insured…anyone doing work at your house should be insured…one other good thing about us, we purchase all the lights you want and the wreaths which is custom cut and measured to your personal house,” All Clean employee, Kim Burbacher said.

Most window cleaning and lawn care businesses will also take all these light for you down, come January. And some companies, like All Clean, will even store lights for you again until next year.
