As the nights are getting colder and you start to feel the chill, make sure you take the time to check that the electric blanket is working correctly before you put it on the bed; as it can pose a threat if it is faulty.
Please follow the instructions listed below and if you have any issues please contact our friendly office team on 07 573 8781 or fill out a 'contact us' form through our website.
Before use- Check for damage or wear and check again each time you change the sheets. Inspect the cord, control switch and plug for any damage and look for any kinks, worn or exposed wires, scorch marks, or breaks in the heating element.
How to check- Turn the blanket on for 15 minutes at the highest setting (don’t leave the room) and then turn it off. Run your hand over the blanket and feel for hot spots. A hot spot means the heating coil has been kinked or damaged. This could lead to fire or electric shock. Take it to a licenced electrical worker, like us, for repair or replace it with a new one.
Use an electric blanket only to warm the bed. Switch if off before you get in, so as to avoid overheating. Overheating can be life threatening, especially for the very young, ill, or elderly.
