WHen i was Recently showing homes...a very nice home that have burning candles in every room. Sometimes severeal in each room.
First the cent can be annoying to some people that have allergies.
Second the safety factor especially with the signs of cats in the house. They love to jump up on tables and contertops.
I understand the concept, however, the owner must think on the pracitcle side and see the danger involved. I aviod the chance of being held responsible for someones house burning down after i show it. Therefor i always blow them out. I never leave an empty home with a burning candle.
I certainly hope more Realtors take the same opinion and Blow out those candles before leaving.
We often see the little signs on the wall asking you to take off your shoes or wear the little scrunchy shoe covers and of course turn out the lights. What about blow out the candles?
