Holiday Candle Safety Tips for San Ysidro Families?

12/13/2022 (Permalink)

Prayer candles light up a room. We are trusted leaders in fire damage restoration services in San Diego.

Our Otay Mesa and San Ysidro teams wish everyone in San Ysidro a happy holiday season! Many families use candles to celebrate the holidays. According to National Fire Protection Association (NFPA), candles are among the leading causes of United States home fires. Here are some candle safety tips from the NFPA:

  • Blow out all candles when you leave the room or go to bed. Avoid using candles in the bedroom and other areas where people may fall asleep.
  • Keep candles at least 1 foot away from anything that can burn
  • Use sturdy candle holders that won’t tip over easily
  • Put candle holders on a sturdy, uncluttered surface
  • Light candles carefully. Keep your hair and any loose clothing away from the flame.
  • Don’t burn a candle all the way down — put it out before it gets too close to the holder or container
  • Never use a candle if oxygen is used in the home
  • Have flashlights and battery-powered lighting ready to use during a power outage. Never use candles.
  • Think about using flameless candles in your home. They look and smell like real candles.
