Lastly, we’ll provide some fireplace safety tips for the holidays.

Feb 2017In February: Best winter hikes in Niagara

Niagara Falls and the surrounding area is beautiful all year long.

If you can brave the cold, you’ll discover hiking trails and places which are perfect for crisp, bright, wintry days.

In no particular order, here are the top spots for winter hikes in Niagara:

  • Niagara Glen.
  • Ball’s Falls.
  • Long Beach.
  • Bruce Trail.

The best part? Once you come back home, relaxing by the fire will be that much more enjoyable and comfortable.

May 2017In May: Spring cleaning for your gas fireplace

You know that wood fireplaces need to be professionally cleaned on a regular basis.

What about gas fireplaces, though?

The answer, of course, is yes. And the reasoning was covered in May’s blog about spring cleaning for your gas fireplace.

In short:

  • Debris can still build up inside a gas fireplace.
  • There could be a blockage (like an animal nest) in the chimney.
  • Your gas fireplace (or its components) may be starting to age.

Finally, even though it’s only December, it’s never too early to think about annual cleaning for your gas fireplace once spring arrives.

July 2017In July: Fire tables and fire pits

Although the first day of summer seems so far away (by the way, it’s Thursday, June 21, 2018), you can still dream of having the perfect fireplace table and pit for your home or cottage.

This past July, we took a look at the most popular options for these outdoor products.

As with most fire tables and fire pits, it all comes down to fuel preference:

  • Wood burning fire pits create that authentic, campfire feeling.
  • Gas or propane fire tables allow for easy start-up and cleaning.

Of course, there are more benefits to be found with fire tables and fire pits; as well as many styles and products for you to choose from.

Holiday fireplace safety tips

Christmas around the fireplace should be warm, enjoyable, and memorable.

It’ll also be safe too, with these easy-to-follow safety tips:

  • Test your smoke alarms and carbon monoxide detectors. If they aren’t working, replace the batteries or units outright before using your fireplace.
  • Keep flammable items away. Stockings and tinsel are especially susceptible to catching fire. Anything that’s flammable should be kept at least 3 feet away from your fireplace.
  • Don’t burn wrapping paper. Colored wrapping paper will release fumes into the air once the ink that’s on it burns.
  • Never leave a fire unattended. Although Christmas is a busy time with guests, presents, and more, always make sure someone is keeping an eye on the fireplace as it burns.
  • Keep pets and kids away with a safety screen. This prevents sparks from leaping out of your fireplace and children, cats or dogs from accidentally falling in it.
  • Have a fire extinguisher handy. You just never know.
