Corner electric fireplaces are excellent supplemental heat sources that also have the appearance of a real fire. These fireplaces that run on electricity make use of patented flame technology that gives off a truly realistic flame like effect. No matter the viewing angle, people will be impressed with how lifelike the flames are. Plus, the fireplaces easily warm up rooms without the need for any vents. Simply plug the fireplace in and enjoy the warmth and ambiance of a real fire in minutes. There always seems to be that one room in the apartment or home that never seems to stay warm, no matter how high the thermostat is set. An electric-powered fireplace is a great way to add extra heat to perpetually chilly rooms in the home. In fact, in some warmer regions of the country, there are apartments and smaller homes that don`t have heating at all. Because the climate is generally warmer, this is usually fine, but what happens during a cold spell? In this instance, electric fireplaces can serve as a precious heat source.
Take your fireplace grate and tools outside and give them a good hosing down. This will quickly remove all of the loose soot and dirt from the surface. For the fireplace grate, fill a bucket with hot water and a small amount of abrasive cleaner. Scrub with a steel wool pad to remove the caked on resin and soot. You may need to use a stiff-bristled brush to get the really bad parts. For the fireplace tools, use hot water and a small amount of ammonia cleaner. Avoid using abrasives, as these may scratch the finish on your tools. You may use a scrub brush to get the stubborn dirt particles, but use caution so as not to damage the surface. Once you have removed all the dirt and soot, you may decide to add an extra sparkle to your freshly cleaned fireplace tools. You can do this by polishing with a brass polisher. Follow all label instructions and warnings when applying this to your tools.
