Bathroom candle safety considerations


Bathroom candle safety


Many people think that lighting candles in the bathroom is not a risk because the floors and walls in bathrooms are usually tiled. However, there are flammable objects here – towels and other textile, for example. It is essential to observe fire safety and ensure that the room is well ventilated.

When decorating the bathroom interior with candles, arrange them so that if a burning candle falls, it will fall on a non-combustible surface – tile, or ceramics. Ensure that nothing combustible is dangling over the candle flame, such as a towel.

Candles should always be placed on stands made of nonflammable materials that won't deform from heat. Before lighting a candle, it is important to ventilate the room. Too strong aromas can cause headaches. For the same reason, you should not use several scented candles at the same time, especially with different scents, unless they are designed for group use. Do not leave burning candles unattended. Extinguish them when you leave the bathroom. Make sure that the wick of the candle is actually extinguished, and does not continue to smolder.
