Fireplace Care for Winter Home Maintenance
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.
- 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
