Tips for Maintaining your Fireplace

fireplace-main_fullWe all enjoy the beautiful glow of a fireplace. Whether it’s around the holidays or just on a cool night it sets the mood and creates the perfect ambiance inside your home. So it is very important to maintain your gas or electric fireplace so you can enjoy that glow for years to come. Much of the maintenance work you do annually should be done by a professional like inspection, cleaning, and adjustments but there are many things you can do yourself in between your annual fireplace maintenance.

First when attempting any maintenance or cleaning you should make sure the gas valve is turned off; if the valve is not turned off there is potential for injury or death.

If you begin an inspection of your fireplace before cleaning and anything looks wrong or off, be sure to call a professional instead of taking any risks just to be on the safe side.

Once a month you should clean the inside and outside of the glass with glass cleaner. Whether or not you use the fireplace during that month proper cleaning is essential to keep a cloudy look from forming on the glass. If you want a clear view of your gorgeous glowing fire this is one simple step you should take.

While you are cleaning the glass you should go over the entire fireplace with a duster or dry cloth to remove any dust, spider webs or other particles.

Be sure to check the glass door for any cracks. Also check all the hinges and screws for any lose or missing pieces. Your fireplace door needs to be sealed properly when it is closed if you have a gas fireplace. This will protect you from carbon monoxide leaking out into your home.

Be sure to check the fake logs in your fireplace. They can become dirty and sometimes even break. Make sure to inspect the logs on a monthly basis or at the first sign of unusual behavior; skipping this step could cause malfunction and possibly injury. You can buy a special soft bristle log brush from most hardware stores to clean your logs.

During cleaning, check to see if the gasket is cracked or is missing pieces. The gasket should be located either on the glass door or outside around the firebox. Check your owner’s manual for the exact location. If the gasket is damaged in any way, have it replaced immediately.

If your fireplace has a vent attached to it outside of the house, it is important to make sure there is nothing blocking the vent. Remove any debris, leaves, or other obstructions. If your vent is damaged at all, replace it.

How to Care for Your Own SPA

Hot TubA quality hot tub is a must if you want to have a little oasis of fun and hydro-massage. It allows you to pop in every time you feel the need for some pampering time. But there comes a time when the hot tub would need maintenance in order for it to continue the good work, for which you can call an expert from expert from www.hottubandfireplacerepair.com  for a hot tub maintenance job.

The main items you need to focus on while cleaning the hot tub are water erosion signs and water quality. If the water’s pH drops under 7-7.4, you or your children could develop allergies and the water could become an algae-friendly environment. This will cause calcium to deposit on the tub’s walls and will make hot tub maintenance difficult.

To make sure none of these happen, sanitize the hot tub with Bromine and check the chemical levels of the sanitizers on daily basis. Add more solution if needed. Avoid Chlorine as it may trigger allergies and severe skin rashes, especially for the ones with highly sensitive skin.
Clean the filters monthly or twice a month. This is necessary as calcium deposits, soap or other bathing solutions may clog the filter and turn the water into the perfect breeding ground for bacteria and algae. Filter cleaning is considered as part of the regular hot tub maintenance and can be easily done, but if you feel overcome with this task, ask for a hot tub repair service expert.

Last but not least, change the water in the hot tub. This has to be done periodically, which could vary depending on your usage. You can use a water test strip to determine when to change the water. You can get this from your local spa shop. While changing the water don’t forget to give the plumbing and jets a good cleaning as well. If the plumbing of your spa is clean, you will get better circulation and clearer water, both of which are necessary for the best spa experience. Taking good care of your spa will allow you to enjoy your tub for a long-time.
