Maintaining Your Fire Feature

Like any outdoor living feature or furniture, maintenance is key to longevity. Fire features can be used throughout the year, so maintaining it consistently is important. A well-maintained fireplace not only ensures safety but also protects your investment. Check for any signs of wear, such as cracks or rust, and address any issues promptly. For masonry fire pits, patch cracks. Cracking can occur if you have a fire in very cold temperatures.

Cleaning & Care

For optimal performance and safety, regular cleaning is necessary. For gas fire features, follow these steps. Regular cleaning and care will keep your fire feature looking its best and operating safely.

  1. Start by turning off the gas supply and allowing the fire feature to cool down completely.
  2. Remove any media like lava rock or fire glass.
  3. Once cool, remove the burner and clean it thoroughly.
  4. Use a soft brush or cloth to clean the exterior, removing dirt or soot.
  5. Finally, check the ignition system to ensure it is functioning correctly.

For concrete fire features, you’ll remove ashes, debris, and all residual wood from previous use. Ash can be acidic and corrosive, so it’s best to remove ashes at least three days after its use. Make sure the ash has cooled enough before removal.

Safety First

Safety should always be a top priority when using fire features, both wood and gas fireplaces and pits. Regularly inspect your fire feature to ensure it’s in good working condition. Before lighting up, take a few minutes to inspect the gas lines for leaks and ensure that all connections are secure. Proper ventilation is crucial to prevent the buildup of harmful gases, so be sure the area around your fire feature is well-ventilated with no combustibles nearby. Keep children and pets at a safe distance, and always have a fire extinguisher nearby, just in case. Educate everyone in your household on its proper use.

Fuel and Firewood

The type of fuel you use and how you store firewood can significantly impact the performance of your fire feature. Always opt for high-quality fuel that’s suitable for your specific fire feature. Using the wrong fuel can lead to poor combustion and potential safety hazards. Additionally, proper firewood storage is essential. Keep firewood in a dry, well-ventilated area to prevent mold growth and ensure it burns efficiently when added to the fire.
