A gas fireplace screen is a wonderful addition to any fireplace. Another great advantage of these screens is the fact that they are easy to clean using common cleaners and items available in your home. Read the information below about how to clean your screen efficiently and in a short amount of time.
What to Use
The main thing that you want to remember is that you do not want to clean your screen with a flammable cleaning agent. This will actually leave a residue behind which can cause a fire and a safety hazard. An all purpose house cleaner will be the best choice in cleaning your screen. The method most frequently used to clean the screen is using the cleaner and a damp cloth.
How Often to Clean
Because your fireplace is gas burning, you should not have to clean your fireplace screen as often as you would a wood burning fireplace screen. Cleaning your fireplace every couple of months is normal and recommended.
Utilizing Your Vacuum Cleaner
If you would prefer to keep things simple, then try using your vacuum cleaner. This procedure takes less than 5 minutes and you can efficiently clean your screen with less effort. However, if it doesn't get it as clean as you would like, feel free to use the cloth and cleaner to take off what the vacuum left behind.
