HOW DO YOU CLEAN A CHIMNEY WITH CASSETTE?
The arrival of good weather marks the end of the use of our fireplace. The time has come to clean the chimney thoroughly, check it and leave it ready for the following season.
If we have a wood cassette, cleaning should include both the inside of the fireplace (the chimney sweep of the tubes) and the cleaning of the structure of the insert and the glass, where soot usually accumulates.
This deep cleaning of the chimney can be quite cumbersome and dirty, since all the soot, ash and cream accumulated during the season of use will be embedded if we have not done a good maintenance.
In the case of fireplaces with cassette, all the dirt will also have accumulated in the area of the door and glass, so we must pay special attention to these parts.
• Clean the interior structure of the chimney cassette
The first thing is to clean the ash from the last use, always making sure to do it when the fireplace is cold.
We can use a shovel or metal bucket and remove it manually, although we will achieve better results using a specific vacuum cleaner for ashes.
Once we have removed the ash, with the help of a wire brush, rub the interior walls of the installation to remove the adhered particles, which we will remove with the help of the vacuum cleaner or the shovel when they are released.
Later we can use a specific product for cleaning chimneys or choose a mixture of vinegar with warm water, with which we will rub the inside of the combustion chamber.
Once we have rubbed the inside of the chamber and the outside of the door, rinse with water and let dry.

To clean the glass of a fireplace with cassette, we can also use a specific cleaning product, which we can find in DIY stores.
In this case, apply the product directly to the cloth and not to the glass and rub the entire surface vigorously, emphasizing the corners and areas where the dirt is most embedded.
