Your outdoor fireplace has the same needs as the one in your home. But, your outdoor fireplace needs equipment made to handle the elements. Not just any fireplace tool set will do! Stainless steel toolsets are invaluable when it comes to cleaning the fireplace and keeping your outdoor living space tidy.
Some tools are self-explanatory, but some may have more uses than you know! Read up on how you can use your fireplace tools to get a better flame and keep a nice, clean firebox!
Why are we including it in the tool list? Well, …you don’t leave your golf clubs laying all over the garage because they’d get damaged, or damage something else. That’s why a golf bag is invaluable and the same reason a stand comes with the wood-burning fireplace accessories you use to maintain the fireplace.
You need to be able to keep them organized and in one place both for efficiency and to make sure there are no mishaps.
Also called a fire iron, a poker is used to manipulate coal or wood in a firebox so that it can burn more efficiently. Not all pokers look the same; some are simply a point while others are a hook. For example, did you know that locomotive operator may use a variety of fire irons to keep a steam engine going?
This one is straightforward. The shovel is essential for cleaning out the firebox and removing soot, ash, and smaller pieces of wood. Without it, all of that would go onto your patio and be a time-consuming hassle to clean up again.
Lastly, there’s the broom. Like the shovel, this one is pretty self-explanatory as far as how you use it. It’s unsightly to let ash build up in your firebox, not to mention it doesn’t smell great. The outdoor brooms we sell feature plastic bristles so that they withstand the weather better than others.
The smell of ash can cling to your broom long after you’ve finished cleaning your outdoor fireplace. If you’re not into the smell of soot and ash, follow these tips to clean it:
First, knock off as much debris as you can.
Vaccum the bristles to get off all remaining loose particles from the fireplace.
Use water and mild detergent to soak your broom. You can swish the broom around in the water and then rinse it off with a hose.
While the broom dries, why not wipe down your stainless steel tools so they really shine?
Our stainless steel tool sets come in a variety of styles, but most frequently they are ultra-modern and perfect for an urban home or business. Because they are stainless steel they can hold up to general wear and tear better than many other materials. Stainless steel lasts a lot longer than other metals, even standard steel before it begins to show its age.
If the modern style isn’t really your style, our steel fireplace tools are beautiful and can be treated to be rust-resistant.
