How To Clean Your Cal Flame Fireplace

Cal Flame fireplaces are great to use but over time they can be intimidating to clean. However, it is easier than you think! This post will give you a step by step guide on how to clean your Cal Flame Fireplace. Here we go!

  1. Inspect the appliance before initial use.
  2. Clean the appliance at least annually and have it inspected by a qualified field service person.
  3. Periodically remove the logs and examine the burner. If the burner is dirty, clean it with a soft wire brush. Also examine the area around the burner air shutter.
  4. Remove any dirt or debris in this area. This will ensure long life and trouble-free operation.
  5. Periodically check the hose connecting the propane gas cylinder to ensure it is not damaged in any way. Carbon (soot) may build up on the surfaces of the logs with heavy use. This is more likely to occur with propane gas. Clean soot off the surface of the logs periodically to prevent excessive buildup.
  6. To clean the logs, be sure the fire is out, the gas supply is turned off and the logs are cool to the touch. The soot can then be brushed of with a dry bristle brush or cloth. Take care while cleaning the logs as they can become damaged if mishandled.
  7. Periodically check the hose connecting the propane gas cylinder to ensure it is not cracked or damaged in any way. All natural gas hook-ups should be serviced and inspected only by qualified installers only.
  8. The easiest way to clean the fireplace is to let the fireplace cool completely off. Spray the enclosure off with water. Note: Do NOT spray water directly onto the burner.
