Be Aware of the Dangers of Candles

7/31/2019 (Permalink)

Candles can absolutely bring a calming sense and make your home smell lovely. However they are one of the top causes of home fires and they could be so easily prevented. Here are some easy tips to keep your home safe:

  • Blow out candles before leaving a room or going to bed
  • Keep candles one foot (30 centimeters) away from anything that can burn
  • Use a sturdy candle holder, that will not tip over easily
  • Put candle holders and a sturdy and uncluttered surface
  • Do not let the candle burn all the way to the bottom
  • You should not light a candle if oxygen is used in the home
  • During a power outage, use a flashlight or battery-operated lighting instead of a candle

Candles are an open flame which means they can easily ignite. But always remember SERVPRO of Ojai/Montecito is just one call away.
