Maintaining your Fireplaces in Chicago regularly can be your best bet at reducing the chances of permanent damage. Although, you should always get your chimneys and fireplaces inspected by a professional at least once in a year, the overall cost of maintenance goes down by a strong margin if you try to upkeep and maintain your fireplaces on your own.
Fireplaces produce smoke and soot. Therefore it is necessary to embark on the project of cleaning brick fireplace so that you can keep your fireplaces neat and maintained. Try these simple tips for the same.
  • For cleaning fireplace brick, use a stiff bristled brush and a bucket of warm water. This will help remove dirt and grime.
  • For stubborn stains, press on children’s modeling dough and then peel it off gently, making sure that it doesn’t remove top layer of brick. Otherwise, use baking soda in paste like form with water to scrub. 
  • You can also scrub your brick area with Tri-sodium phosphate. But make sure that you use rubber gloves. You can even try full strength vinegar for this purpose. 
  • Make sure that you try chemicals on small spots to ensure that they don’t stain or bleach the product.
