Be Careful with Mirrors!
FIRE RISK FROM MIRRORS
This is a serious warning, not just a shameless advert for our services ....
We were called to a repair on some uPVC windows today, the damage below was caused by a mirror placed near a window. The sun had hit the mirror and burnt right through the uPVC just like a laser. The heat generated must have been huge and easily enough to start a fire.
Luckily it did not cause a fire, but if this beam of light had hit curtains or other combustible materials, it may have been a different story.
Please share around, as although you will see from the image below, we can make it look like new again, mirrors near windows are a serious fire risk!
