February 3, 2014
A fireplace is an excellent touch in creating a more traditional look for a home, plus it also comes in handy during the cold season. However, this structure may require heavy maintenance, especially for one that doesn’t only serve as room design.
If you rely on your fireplace to keep a room warm during winter, here are some maintenance tips that you should consider:
- keep flammable materials away from the structure
- for added security, install a glass door and a metal mesh screen
- opt for hardwood over softwood to prevent creosote build-up
