So that you can safely enjoy your outdoor fireplace or fireplace, it should be installed on a flat surface and at a distance of at least 2 m from flammable substances such as plants, wooden floors, buildings or overhangs. Burn only natural wood and do not use lighter liquid. Be prepared to extinguish fires with a bucket of water, sand, fire extinguishers and fire blankets. Consider adding safety features like built-in chairs, fire protection, and firefighting gloves so guests aren't tempted to get closer.
Keep your outdoor fireplace clean
Maintaining a clean fireplace outside is the key to safely enjoying the fireplace. You should periodically clear the area of debris to reduce the risk of sparks getting caught on overgrown plants or leaves. You should sweep away any debris in or around the fireplace and remove soot and ash in a shop. The outside of the fireplace can be cleaned with a brush with hard bristles and warm soapy water. The inside of a wood-burning fireplace should be cleaned by professionals who have the correct cleaning agents and experience to remove soot and ash build-up. Depending on the frequency of use, this should be done once or twice a year. A gas fireplace can be cleaned with a soft brush for gas burner holes and false logs. Gas burners should be cleaned with a soft cloth.
