With winter soon approaching, you're surely starting to think about using the fireplace to stay warm and cozy with your family. Before you do, however, you should remember to give it some basic maintenance, especially since it's gone unused for quite some time. To ensure your chimney is ready to be used, follow the tips below.

How to Keep Your Fireplace Safe, Clean, and Functional

  1. Use a flashlight to look into your fireplace and assess the condition it is in: inspect the flue for soot, debris, or obstructions. You should also check the cap and replace it if necessary.
  2. Now, with a broom, a vacuum, or a brush, work on cleaning the chimney: remove all dirt from the floors, walls, and surroundings. Scrub the walls with a mixture of bleach and water until spotless.
  3. If you want to have long-lasting fires and a cleaner fireplace, invest in hardwoods (such as oak and maple). These will burn longer and won't leave as much residue behind.
  4. Consider installing a stainless steel chimney liner or heat-proof glass doors, so you can make your fireplace safer and more functional.
  5. Whenever you use your fireplace, keep an eye out for any issues it may have (note the amount of smoke and its color, for example). This will help you deal with those issues as soon as possible.
  6. Finally, and even if you maintain your fireplace on your own, you should still call a professional who can evaluate its condition and fine-tune it so that it can give you warm nights without any problems.
