Temperatures will begin to dip in the coming months, and when they do, there's nothing better than enjoying a hot beverage next to a blazing fire. Make sure your fireplace is ready for whatever the weather brings by giving it a quick cleanup now. First, remove any ashes that may be leftover from last season. Then wash the walls and floor with a warm water and Trisodium Phosphate (TSP) mixture. Lastly, rinse with water and dry. Now you're ready for fall!
