Firerock Outdoor Fireplace - Spring is finally here. Yeah! So now the hearth time is winding down. But do not believe that means that the fireplace should consequently go unused throughout the warmer months. Quite the reverse! But there's a small spring-cleaning to be done, before we are able to get to the fun decorating.
First order of business is to take good care of the chimney. Make sure there isn't any creosote buildup in your chimney. In the event the creosote builds up, there's a chance that it will catch fire and since creosote burns at an excessively high temperature, it's a really dangerous and fast-burning fire.
There are actually several great ways to clean out a chimney. One is to buy a chimney brush that fits with your size and sort of chimney. These brushes are specifically developed for cleaning out chimneys, but you need to make sure you have the correct size to your chimney. Also, where as if your chimney is pre-fab for those who have a mortar and brick chimney you ought to use a wire brush, you need to use a brush with bristles that are poly. The shape of your chimney is important in contemplating which brush to buy. Some chimneys are rectangle or square, while the others are spherical. Once you have determined which brush is best for your own chimney, you need to decide whether you're mo Re comfortable climbing on the very top of your roof to clean or sitting next to your fireplace.
