Tips for Cleaning Your Modern Fireplace


A modern fireplace  brings  us warmth during the coldest nights right in the comfort of our homes. But in order to keep enjoying the benefits that fireplaces bring, you need to make sure that you regularly clean and maintain them. This way, you will have an efficient, attractive and safe fireplace that you can use for many years to come.
Before getting started, ensure that all of its parts are completely cool and that the gas valve has already been turned off. Once you have ensured that the gas valve and all the components of the gas fireplace are cool, check the burner and the control area. If you see dust or debris, suction them up using a vacuum cleaner with hose attachment. You can also use the vacuum cleaner to get rid of any cobwebs that you might find in the fireplace as well. Use a paint brush to get rid of any dust, dirt or cobwebs from the gas logs. Know that these logs are fragile so you need to be gentle. Soft bristles should be perfect for cleaning the logs.  Check for any signs of damage or corrosion and call a professional for replacement or repair if there are any.
Spray window cleaner on a dry cloth to clean the glass. Never spray the glass directly since it can land on decorative parts or surrounding metal and corrode them. Start cleaning outside the glass and then inside. The outside is bound to be cleaner and you would not want to bring in any buildup or soot from the inside out. Finally, with a clean damp cloth, wipe the outside of the fireplace. Never expose the gold, brass, marble or decorative materials and plates to corrosive or abrasive cleaners. With a good cleaning schedule, these parts should then easily wipe with water.
