Should You Use Real Candles on Your Christmas Tree?

12/30/2021 (Permalink)

Decorating your home for the holidays is a fun family tradition, especially with a classic holiday film playing in the background, upstaged by the glow of the Christmas tree.  

Speaking of glow… Have you heard about the traditional decorating trend rumored to make a comeback? 

Unfortunately, this classic and beautiful look presents a potential fire hazard in the form of real candles on your Christmas tree. Yes, we’re talking about those candles that flicker with an actual flame. 

In Favor of Fake (Candles)

As mesmerizing as the glow of a real flame can be, the fact is candles and trees (real or artificial) do not mix. An open flame is unpredictable; therefore, unsafe, particularly in the presence of children or pets.  

At SERVPRO, we urge you to use LED lights for your decorating needs, rather than real candles, which can quickly require fire restoration, extinguishing your holiday festivities. 

Have a lovely and safe holiday season from our team at SERVPRO Danvers / Ipswich. No matter the season, we are standing by and ready for you to contact us with any fire restoration questions or concerns.
