Are string lights dangerous?
Before you begin decking the halls, it's a good idea to ensure you're well-versed in string light safety! Indeed, while many fairy lights use LED technology instead of the hotter incandescent lights, there's still a few tips and tricks that'll help you to keep yourself and your family safe when you're lighting up your home. Firstly, you should always check your string lights for safety ratings - both on the packaging and on the labels that should be directly attached to the lighting cords. Once you've checked this off your safety list, you can move on to inspecting the cords themselves for any signs of fraying or damage that could lead to an electrical short, or even a fire!
String lights should also only ever be used in the environment that the packaging approves them for. By way of illustrating, indoor lights should never be used in outdoor spaces as using them in this manner is not only going to cause them to break but could also pose a safety risk to boot. Not to mention, when you're hanging them across a suitable environment, always take your time to ensure they aren't too close to any candles, fireplaces, heaters, or flammable materials to reduce the chances of a fire breaking out. Finally, never opt for staples or nails to hang your festive fairy lights and instead make sure you have a healthy supply of specially-designed insulated holders to keep your string lights looking fantastic!
