This year we thought it might be a good idea to provide you with some vital Christmas Fire Safety Tips.
1) Your Chimney: It is extremely important that you get your chimney cleaned by a chimney cleaning professional well before the holiday season. This will safeguard your house from chimney fire damage and chimney flue liner damage.
2) Your Christmas Tree: Buy a non shedding Christmas tree and keep it watered to prevent it from drying out, dry trees can catch fire very easily. If you have an artificial Christmas tree make sure that it has been pre-treated to increase flame resistance. Always ensure your Christmas tree is well away from candles, heaters and fireplaces.
3) Christmas Lights: Ensure your Christmas lights comply with safety standards. Check your lights for frayed or exposed wires. and never attempt to repair a worn set of lights, replace them. Replace broken bulbs only with similar bulbs. Do not leave your lights on for prolonged periods of time and always switch off lights at night and when leaving the area unattended.
4) Open Fires: Always use a spark guard, never hang decorations directly over your fire and do not throw wrapping paper or packaging into the fire. This advice may be obvious to most people but it is these kind of mistakes that cause chimney fire damage.
5) Candles: Never leave lighted candles unattended and never place them close to combustible decorations or to curtains
6) General Safety: Never overload electrical sockets as this is one of the main causes of electrical fires, kitchen fire damage and house fire damage. Only use outdoor Christmas lights outside, ensure they are watertight and that they are secured from wind damage and storm damage. Check that your smoke alarms are in perfect working order. NEVER remove batteries from your smoke alarm to use in children’s toys.
7) Before you go to Bed: Unplug all your Christmas lights, switch off all appliances and put a spark guard up in front of the fire.
