How to Steam Clean Your Fireplace

Easily clean your fireplace before cooler weather arrives with this quick fireplace cleaning tutorial.

Do you have an outdated and old brass fireplace? Have you ever wanted to clean and update it but don't know how? Well it's much easier than you think. Prepping your Fireplace for Fall is much easier with the Wagner 915 On Demand Steamer. You can fully clean your fireplace and have it painted within a day!

Updating my fireplace has been on my list of home projects for a while. A couple years ago I started working on it by removing a layer of brick, but I ended up putting the project on hold. Ever since then I have lived with a not so pretty fireplace insert.

After a little bit of research I realized updating my fireplace insert is so easy! Here's how to clean and update your fireplace for Fall!

Materials Needed

To get started you'll want to remove everything you can from the fireplace. That includes the logs, sand, etc... I would have removed my fireplace grate but it was attached to the floor. Next, vacuum the entire area including the walls.

Next, prepare the Wagner 915 On-Demand Steamer with distilled water and add the jet nozzle and brush. Then start steaming the interior walls and floor. It's best to work from top to bottom and to have a cleaning rag to wipe away excess water.

I was able to remove all the soot along with the dust I couldn't get to with a vacuum. Then I attached the squeegee to clean the glass. The extension tube also made the inside of the glass easier to clean.

Next, I prepped and painted the insert black (you can see more on this process at A Shade of Teal. I originally planned to paint the entire interior black but once I finished steam cleaning I realized how nice the interior really was. So I figured why paint it when it practically looks brand new!

Finally, I decorated my newly cleaned & painted fireplace for Fall. Here's the results.
