Cleaning the glass door
One of the dirtiest parts of your fireplace, glass fireplace doors can end up with some tough stains from soot and creosote. To thoroughly clean these doors, you start by scraping off any gunk with a razor blade. After you have removed the sticky residue from the doors, you can then clean them with a solution of warm water and liquid dishwashing detergent or a mixture of a gallon of water and a cup of vinegar and a clean rag or sponge to apply your cleaning solution. HGTV recommends using newspaper to wipe away the cleaner because it is lint-free. Olde Towne Chimney & Fireplace Sales also carries glass cleaner that has been specially made to clean fireplace doors.
Remember that an annual professional chimney sweeping and inspection is important for maintaining an efficient and safe fireplace. Contact us at Olde Towne Chimney & Fireplace Sales to schedule your appointment for our chimney maintenance services today.
