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.
Most houses these days aren`t even built with a fireplace in mind. Housing codes in some cities have put a damper on the installation of traditional wood burning fireplaces. Alternative heating sources that don`t require the collection of wood and the cleanup of ash are another reason why fireplace installation in new homes isn`t so popular. But, fireplaces are so beautiful. They are great for hanging around on cold nights when you want to just spend some quality time with your family. The problem is that installing a traditional wood burning fireplace can cost thousands of dollars. It`s actually somewhere above ten thousand. But, there are cost effective solutions to install a fireplace without the traditional wood burning features that cost so much. Most of this work you can do yourself. But if you have no hope of ever being even an amateur construction worker, then any work you might need done won`t be too expensive to outsource to a contractor.
