The Tools You Need
Chances are that you don’t think of a fireplace a lot of the time when it comes to the daily cleaning regimen in your house, even when you’re using it. However, leaving your fireplace unattended can lead to a combination of unappealing ash stains and potential safety hazards. This is double the case when it comes to outdoor fireplaces in Colorado. There are far more potential factors that can dirty an outdoor fireplace, even if you invest in some sort of protection. With this in mind, the last thing you want to do is wait. One good piece of news is that when it comes to the work of cleaning a fireplace, you don’t need a lot of special tools. Simply get a basic wet-dry vacuum, some form of cleaning solution, and you’re ready to go. Generally, you want to make sure that your solution matches the material your fireplace is made of. A combination of water and white vinegar is generally a good place to start. If you want a more sensitive option to dry off the solution, a microfiber cloth is helpful.
Proper Cleaning Practices
In order to actually begin cleaning your fireplace, you want to start by getting rid of any excess ash. Be sure to wait at least 4 days after the fire has burned out in order to do this safely. You ideally want to discard the ashes in a metal container as far from your house as possible. Then, you can begin spraying down your fireplace area and cleaning it off with your materials of choice. This is also a great time for you to take a general inspection of your fireplace. There may be some subtle issues that you want to get repaired sooner rather than later to save money and avoid potential risks.
