Important tips for cleaning your wood burning stove

To keep your wood burning stove clean, you should consider some regular cleaning and maintenance tasks, including:

  • Cleaning the glass- over time the glass on your stove can become ashy, sooty or dirty. It is also a trap for fingerprints and smudges too. You can use specialist stove cleaning products for this, or just a microfibre cloth. Be sure the clean the inside and the outside of the glass for the best results.
  • Cleaning the exterior- the exterior of the stove can also become dirty over time, due to ash and dust. This can be cleaned easily using a vacuum cleaner with a mouthpiece with soft brushes. You should never use a wet cloth to clean this, as this can ultimately lead to rust.
  • Scratches in the paintwork- occasionally scratches can develop in the paintwork, usually as a result of accidental damage. However, these can easily be fixed with heat resistant spray paint. Simply make sure that the surface of the wood burning stove is clean and dry before you paint it.
