The Dark Side Of Candles

2/24/2020 (Permalink)

Most people enjoy the presence of candles in their home but do not consider how dangerous they can be. Not only do they pose a fire hazard, but they also have the ability to leave your home filled with soot. Soot has the ability to coat your walls, carpet, furniture, blinds, drapes, contents, and more. There are a few ways you can prevent soot damage from a candle:

  • Ensure the candle is fully out and not smoldering.
  • Seek higher quality candles with minimal impurities.
  • Trim wicks to 1/4 inch.
  • Open windows regularly to ventilate your home.

Our technicians have extensive experience cleaning soot off both structure and contents. If you have fallen victim to soot damage, give us a call!
