How to prep a fireplace
To prep a fireplace, start by cleaning the interior thoroughly, removing all ash and debris from the firebox and flue. Use a fireplace shovel to scoop out the ash, and a stiff brush to sweep the walls and floor of the firebox. Then, check the chimney for any blockages or buildup of creosote, a highly flammable substance that can ignite and cause a chimney fire. You can hire a professional chimney sweep to inspect and clean your chimney.
Next, check the damper, which is a metal plate that opens and closes the flue. Make sure it is fully open before starting a fire to ensure proper ventilation. Gather dry, seasoned firewood, such as oak, hickory, or maple, and arrange it in the firebox, making sure there is enough space between the logs for air to circulate. You can place a few sheets of crumpled newspaper or a commercial firestarter at the base of the logs to help ignite the fire. When you’re ready to start the fire, use a long match or lighter to ignite the paper or firestarter. Remember to never leave a fire unattended, and always use a fireplace screen to prevent sparks from escaping.
