3 Products That Bring You the Charm of Candles Without the Danger

2/11/2018 (Permalink)

Candles have long been a staple for those looking to add a little charm to their homes. However, it goes without saying that because of their open-flame nature, the average candle is also a huge fire hazard. Over the span of five years, the average candle fire was responsible for a whopping

• 24 reported house fires every day
• 2 percent of all reported house fires
• 3 percent of home fire deaths
• Millions of dollars in property damage and smoke cleanup efforts

This issue has been an ongoing one because people continue to enjoy the benefits that the modern candle has to offer. Fortunately for you and your Kennesaw, Georgia, home, there are now plenty of alternatives to choose from that offer all of the benefits and none of the risk.

1. Wax Warmers

In recent years, wax warmers have slowly begun to replace scented candles as a means of making spaces smell great without the risk of an open flame. These products use low-heat plates to melt scented wax cubes, giving off the same effect as a burning candle. These are, of course, not without their own risks, but they’re generally much safer than candles.

2. Oil Diffusers

Essential oils have also become popular methods of making houses smell great. These oils can either be used in an electric diffuser or with diffusing sticks, neither of which require open flames to get the job done. Diffusers that consist of bottles and diffusing sticks are likely the safest options out there.

3. Fake Candles

Small, battery-operated candles can convincingly emulate the appearance of an actual candle, allowing homeowners to enjoy that soft, flickering light without the threat it typically brings. They can be used alongside wax warmers and oil diffusers to create a candle-like experience without any candle fire risk while you go about your day.

You don't need to risk disaster to enjoy the ambiance candles bring. Any of these options can provide your home in Kennesaw, Georgia, with the benefits of modern candles without the threat of a candle fire on the premises.
