Fire Guards: The One Fireside Accessory You Cannot Do Without

April 16, 2012 | Comments: 0 | Views: 192

If you have a natural fire in your home then you are one of the lucky people who can enjoy the cosy, warm atmosphere that only a real fire can produce. However, a fire is only a good feature of a home when it is safe to use, and the one accessory you will need above all others is a good fire guard.

Here are some of the reasons why fire guards are so important if you have a fire in your home.

Keep Children and Pets at Bay

One thing that you have to remember about a fire is that it can become very dangerous if not looked after properly. Fires are great, but if you do not care for them in the correct way then you could discover to your cost just how dangerous they can be.

One of the biggest dangers arises when there are young children and pets in the home. Children and animals are naturally curious, especially when they are around a fire. It is therefore your responsibility to take precautions to make sure that no accidents occur.

As well as always supervising children around a fire, also make sure that you have a strong guard in place. Fire guards can prevent them getting too close to the fire, preventing accidents from occurring.

Protect from Stray Sparks

If you are burning logs on the fire then you may find that occasionally stray sparks can shoot out. Although these are not typically dangerous, it is still a good idea to have some form of protection in the way of these sparks to prevent them from reaching your carpet, and fire guards can provide this for you.

Prevent Logs from Rolling Off

One of the biggest dangers of a fire is that burning logs can sometimes roll off the fire pile and onto the floor. If you have a carpet nearby then this could catch alight if you are not in the room, so you need to prevent this from happening.

It is not always possible to watch the fire all the time, so strong fire guards can be used to block any logs that roll off from the fire before they reach the carpet. This is a simple but effective way to prevent accidents from occurring, and will allow you to enjoy your fire with greater peace of mind.

Conclusion

Keep Your Fire Safe

Natural log or coal fires are a great feature of any home, but safety should always be taken very seriously. For that reason, make sure that you use a fire guard every time you light your fire, and you will be able to enjoy your fire even more.
