The Safety Basics When Using Lamps

Torchiere floor lamps that use halogen bulbs can reach very high temperatures, making them a fire hazard. To make the use of these lamps safer, you should never place the lamp near curtains or other cloth window treatments. Never drape scarves or clothes over the lamp, and keep the lamp away from bedding. Always turn the lamp off when you leave the room or are not at home. Keep children and pets away from these lamps to prevent tip-over of the lamp. Finally, you should only use a halogen bulb of 300 watts or less in your floor lamp.
