If you have a fire pit, one of the things that you have to do is to make sure that you clean it out on a regular basis. The first thing that you have to do is to make sure that you clean out the debris.
A firepit can be gas-fueled or wood-burning. They also come in many different materials, like brick, metal, or stone. The correct method for cleaning out the firepit is going to depend on the type of firepit. Different types will require various cleaning solutions.
If your fire pit is gas, you want to put work gloves on, grab one of your trash bags, and then remove any large debris pieces, leaves, or twigs from the glass or stones.
For any other kind of fire pit, begin to clean out its inside. And then use a trowel or shovel to help with clearing out the pit’s bottom. Keep on gathering the debris until your fire pit inside’s clear.
Make sure that you are cleaning out the fire pit based on the manufacturer’s specifications and based on the type of fire pit you have.
Tips for Fire Pit Cleaning & Maintenance
- After you have cleaned out your fire pit, make sure it stays protected from the weather and other elements by purchasing a cover for it. This is going to prevent debris, rainwater, and leaves from getting into the fire pit between uses.
- Seasoned wood should be used if you have a wood-burning fire pit, since this will provide a burn that is a lot cleaner and will create less buildup.
- When you are doing maintenance on your fire pit, don’t use water for putting out the fire. This can cause a rapid temperature to drop and can cause cracks. You should allow your fire to slowly burn out so that your fire pit can naturally go back to its normal temperature.
Now that fall is here, you want to make sure that you are taking care of your fire pit so that it can give you many years of use. Cleaning it out regularly and properly maintaining it can help.
