Products contained in aerosol cans found in the home are often extremely flammable.

In the event of a fire breaking out in your property, many aerosol spray containers subjected to higher temperatures can give rise to an explosion and significantly increase the severity of a fire.

Advice on storing and using aerosol sprays

  • Dispose of spent aerosols by recycling where possible
  • Do not store quantities of aerosols indefinitely in sheds and garages or under sink cupboards etc.
  • Use only as directed
  • Protect from sunlight and do not expose to high temperatures
  • Do not pierce or burn, even after use
  • Do not spray onto a naked flame or any incandescent material
  • Keep away from sources of ignition - no smoking during or shortly after use
  • Do not store or display in areas affected by direct sunlight. When appropriate keep products in their transit packaging
