How to Prevent Water Damage From a Live Christmas Tree

One of the joys of the Christmas season is a live tree decoration within your home. Having a live tree, however, requires special precautions to prevent water damage to your floors, especially rugs and hardwood floors which are easily susceptible to mold. By following a few simple guidelines, you can enjoy your tree and keep your floors looking great:

• Consider using a flower pot. A large flower pot with a water catching tray will help catch leaks before they reach the floor. They are meant to accommodate water overflow. This will work especially well with the trees still containing root balls that are meant for outside planting after the holidays.

• Use a waterproof drop. Place clear plastic or a vinyl tablecloth beneath your Christmas tree scarf to help insulate the floor from any leaks. If water is allowed to sit too long, it might leak through, but regular checking will help you catch any leaks before they cause damage.

• Keep pets from the tree. Cats and dogs have a tendency of drinking from unusual places. They also tend to splash water all over. By barricading their access from the tree, this can be prevented. It also keeps young children from playing in the water.

• Clean spills immediately. Check the area surrounding your tree at least twice a day for any leaking and immediately dry any you find. The less time water sits, the less likely damage will occur.

• Use a water-drawing product. Line your pot or water bowl with one of the products created to absorb excess moisture from things like your tree. This will allow any water not being used by the tree to be absorbed before it reaches the floor.
