If you love burning candles at home, knowing some safety tips is essential. Firstly, burning candles should not ever be left unattended, and you need to keep them away from anything flammable. If your candle is in a holder, it needs to be sturdy enough so that it cannot be easily knocked over, especially if you have pets or young children in the home. When accidents happen, SERVPRO technicians can help you clean up the mess, even from a small fire.
Along the same line, any candles you are burning should not be in reach of pets or children. Curious hands can quickly and easily get burned and cause an accident in your home. It is also recommended that the wicks on all your candles are trimmed to a quarter inch before you start burning them each time. Wicks which are longer can create uneven burning and dripping.
Make sure and read the instructions from the manufacturer as well. Most candles should not be burned for more than a couple of hours at a time. When you are ready to extinguish the candles, use a candle snuffer instead of blowing on them since hot wax can splatter.
For additional safety, you can purchase flameless candles as a safe alternative. They produce a similar glowing, soft effect that real candles have. During a power outage, lit candles are not recommended. Instead, use battery-powered lanterns, flashlights, or flameless candles.
