Candles can create a warm and inviting atmosphere, but it's essential to use them safely to prevent accidents and fires. Please follow these safety guidelines:
1. Never Leave Candles Unattended: Always extinguish candles before leaving a room or going to sleep. Never leave a burning candle unattended, even for a short time.
2. Keep Away from Flammable Objects: Place candles on a heat-resistant surface, away from flammable materials such as curtains, papers, or decorations. Ensure a minimum of 12 inches of space around the candle.
3. Use Stable Holders: Place candles in sturdy, non-flammable candleholders.
4. Trim Wick to 1/4 Inch: Before lighting, trim the candlewick to approximately 1/4 inch to prevent excessive flame height and dripping.
5. Keep Out of Reach of Children and Pets: Place candles in a location where children and pets cannot reach them. Educate your family about the dangers of playing with candles.
6. Avoid Drafts: Drafts can cause candles to burn unevenly and increase the risk of accidents. Place candles away from windows, fans, and air vents.
7. Extinguish Properly: Use a snuffer or a candle extinguisher to put out the flame instead of blowing it out, which can scatter hot wax and cause burns.
8. Check for Damage: Inspect candles for cracks, chipping, or other damage before use. Do not use damaged candles.
9. Be Prepared: Keep a fire extinguisher, baking soda, or a fire blanket on hand to quickly extinguish a fire if it occurs. Have a working smoke alarm in your home.
Following these safety guidelines will help you enjoy the beauty and ambiance of candles while reducing the risk of accidents and fires. Stay vigilant and protect your home and loved ones.
