The storage of your festive lighting is the single most important factor in the longevity of your scheme and the longevity of it will depend on how it is stored and maintained.
The common misconception of most installers is that if they are fortunate enough to endure dry weather on the day of take-down or even a few days of dry weather prior to take-down then the lights and motifs are nice and dry, WRONG!
We have made this mistake and learnt from it, moisture from the last 8 to 12 weeks of being outside in all weathers will have found its way to places where the human eye cannot see or comprehend, if stored without drying the moisture will sweat and corrode wires and soldered joints in LED’s leading to imminent failure.
But lights are waterproof and IP rated I here you saying… yes they are but only to a degree and whilst hanging in the outdoors they get wet and they dry again which is fine but if stored without being fully dry they sweat and corrode leading to failure when erected the following season which in turn can prove costly.
