Christmas Lights Removal: How We Helped a Customer Avoid a Dangerous Situation

Putting up holiday lights is one of the most common ways to get in the holiday spirit. Any “Christmas Vacation” fan can easily recall Clark’s passion and laugh about his elaborate setup.

For many customers of an Atlanta painting company, it is an annual tradition because they love the effect on their homes. Each year, they climb up ladders, despite the nervousness they feel while doing so, especially on homes with really high roofs. However, the final product – the home with the best lights on the block – is worth the climb.

Recently, we had a customer call us who was in a predicament. He loved putting up lots of holiday lights but was always nervous about going up on the top parts of his roof due to how high it was. He was always nervous about being on a ladder and on the roof and was trying to avoid it this year, if possible.

This is what he told us about the ordeal:

The hardest part for me was always the end of the season when it came time to take the lights down. It was just an anxiety-ridden task all around.

This year, I got many of the lights off of my house once the holiday season wrapped, but then there were that top half of the lights that were just up too high. It was so intimidating, in fact, that winter, spring, and summer had come and gone, and my lights were still up! Talk about embarrassing.

I called J. Stevens and asked if they would be willing to help. Taking down Christmas lights isn’t a service they typically offer, but I figured if I could avoid dying, it was worth asking! Their crew came over, and 20 minutes later, the second half of my holiday lights were down.

Their team is confident in being up high on ladders, and to them, this task was a breeze. What was a terrifying job for me was an everyday activity for them.

All I could think was – Merry Christmas to me in August! I was so excited because I was able to get the job done (finally!) without the nerves that came with the task. Thank you, J. Stevens. Thanks to you, I didn’t die!
