Your question: What happens if a LED light bulb breaks?

How do you clean up a broken LED light bulb?

If an LED lightbulb breaks in your home or workplace:

  1. Put on protective gloves and sweep up the LED pieces into a plastic bag using a stiff piece of cardboard (if you use a broom, consider disposing of the broom after using it).
  2. Next, use sticky tape to pick up any small fragments left over.

Is a broken light bulb a fire hazard?

Which of these options is safe? It is not safe to leave light bulb sockets empty. They pose an electrocution risk and a fire hazard because of high enough voltage to cause serious electrocution injury. Also, debris could get into the socket, get ignited, and start a fire, although this is an unlikely scenario.

What causes LED bulbs to fail?
