There is nothing more aesthetically pleasing than the flicker of an authentic wood-burning fire, especially with the winter weather temperatures rising and falling like a yo-yo. With this said, neglecting your maintenance duties can affect the quality of your fire and damage your stove overtime. In fact, cleaning your stove is just as important as having it serviced. Read on as the Denton Stove Centre team go over a few top tips to take into consideration when you clean your stove…

  1. Ashes

Removing the build up of ashes from the ash box and firebox of your stove is incredibly important and luckily, it couldn’t be easier! To begin, we recommend that you lay some newspaper or tarp on your floor in order to ensure that your furnishings are protected from the debris. After this, you should open the air dampener in order to let any loose debris fall into the firebox then, using a fireplace shovel, simply scoop the ashes into a bucket and empty the ash box drawer.

  1. Glass

Whilst dirty glass will not impact the quality of your fire or put you in danger, cleaning it is an aesthetic principle. After all, a clean stove door means that you can enjoy the flicker of the flames as they dance. In fact, there are multiple products that can be used to clean the glass of a stove door including apple cider vinegar, white vinegar and regular soap. If you want to go one step further, you can also tackle any rust by using a wire brush and sandpaper as this will keep your stove looking young.

  1. Sweeping

As a health and safety principle, it is important that regular stove users have their chimney/flue swept on a regular basis. After all, burning fuels like coal and wood build up a highly-flammable material known as creosote in the flue and sweeping it annually is the only way to keep it under control and reduce the risk of a deadly chimney fire. It is important to note that this task should be carried out by a high-quality chimney sweep in order to reduce the damage that could be caused to a chimney without the knowledge and experience necessary to get the job done correctly.

Here at Denton Stove Centre, we try to keep our clients and readers as informed as we possibly can. After all, it is a health and safety requirement that every new stove owner understands the importance of maintaining and cleaning their stove. After all, removing creosote may be a job for a chimney sweep but clearing out the ashes and washing the glass doesn’t require an expert!
