How to Clean a Fireplace

Cleaning the fireplace should ideally come at a time when you do not expect to use it for a while, as in the warm summer months. Many people relish the task of cleaning out several months' worth of ash, soot, and smoke build-up. That being said, effectively cleaning a masonry fireplace and the lower part of your chimney and flue is not a particularly challenging or time-consuming task. It should not take much more than a few hours, putting it roughly on par with any other household cleaning task.
