How do I clean my gas fireplace?
Your gas fireplace should be cleaned and serviced once a year. This is something you may do yourself if you are comfortable with turning the gas off and
removing the glass front panel. If not, you may want to call and book a fireplace service with Thomson Industries.
While gas fireplaces do burn much cleaner than burning wood, they will still need to be cleaned.
Here are some steps to cleaning your gas fireplace:
1. Turn off the gas and electrical power to the fireplace, and make sure they are off before proceeding any further.
2. Remove the glass panel, carefully, and clean it with either a fireplace glass cleaner, or a non-ammonia based glass cleaner. Use a soft cloth or paper
towels to clean the glass.
3. Remove the logs, stones, coals, etc. in the firebox and the burner if possible and brush them off using a soft nylon bristle brush. Also scrub out
the firebox and vacuum up the dust and dirt.
4. If your fireplace has a pilot light, use a dry cloth to clean the pilot nozzle and burner assembly.
5. Replace all the logs, stones, coals, the burner, etc. that you removed and cleaned. Re-install the glass, turn on the gas and electricity. If you have
a pilot light, re-light the pilot before re-installing the glass.
6. Turn on your fireplace and make sure you don’t small lass and it’s burning correctly.
