Candle Safety Tips

Candles are a pleasant accessory for your home, but they need to be taken seriously.  Protect yourself and your family by following these important safety tips while burning candles.  Always use common sense, and remember...

You are playing with fire!

  • Never leave a burning candle unattended!  Stay in the same room with it!
  • Never leave a candle burning while you sleep!  This is a huge cause of house fires!
  • Keep candles out of the reach of children and pets!  Many candles smell so good, and some of them even look like a food product, so make sure kids don't mistake them!  Watch for wagging tails near a flame. 
  • Trim wicks prior to each use and keep trimmed to 1/4" to prevent smoke and soot damage to your home.
  • Keep candles away from drafts, vents and flammable objects.  This means do not use near or under a fan or near a breezy window or vent, and do not burn candle near curtains or anything else that could easily catch fire.
  • Extinguish a candle that smokes and trim wick before re-lighting.
  • Extinguish and discard candle when only " of wax remains in bottom of container.  If flame is allowed to burn all the way to the bottom and touch the glass it will get too hot and could cause it to shatter!
  • Use only candle holders that have been manufactured for use with candles and burn only on a stable heat resistant surface.
  • Keep matches and other debris out of the candle's melt pool.
  • Extinguish the flame if it burns too close to the container or holder.  If flame leans against the glass it will get too hot and could cause it to shatter!
  • Do not move a glass container while the wax is still hot and liquid.
