Wood Fireplaces / Stoves / Inserts
Get the most out of your hearth product by staying up-to-date on basic maintenance and care. Some annual maintenance activities you can perform include:
- Inspecting the chimney and termination cap (where the exhaust exits the home) for blockages, build-up or debris, and removing any obstructions
- Inspecting and cleaning the glass, doors, fronts and surrounds with a non-abrasive cleaner
- Removing ashes into a sealed container until disposal, and inspecting the fire grate
A certified hearth professional can help clean the chimney, and inspect all other fireplace elements. Plan to have a local professional clean/inspect your appliance annually. And always be sure your appliance is off and completely cooled before performing any maintenance.
Consult the installation/owner’s manual for more detailed information on maintenance.
