Steps to follow – Sargent Steam Cleaner Fireplace Cleanup:
- Vaccuum up loose ashes first
- Attach the nozzle to the hose and add a 2 inch soft or stiff (you decide) brush
- Dip your brush in a bit of bar soap to speed up the process – it really cuts through the carbon
- Use the low or medium steam setting to clean off ashes, carbon film, dust and soot etc.
- Start from the top and work your way down picking up the drips
- Rock, brick, stone, marble…pretty much any fireplace material is safe to steam clean
- Steam the mortar or grout with a smaller 1 inch brush and test whether you like the soft bristles or stiff
- Remove ashes and soot from the screens and the doors
- Don’t forget the fireplace tools as well
- Wipe up moisture with a paper towel – it’s likely to be pretty black so save your washable cloths for another use
- Now tidy up the mantle and hearth – use the two step (spray and wipe) or cover your brush with a cloth
- Blast dust from the pictures, plants, candles, etc. that decorate your fireplace
A Sargent Steam Cleaner fireplace cleanup success story from Kim Dapper…
My amazing Sargent Steamer was put to the test! My rental condo had 15+ years of built up soot on the face of the fireplace from improper use and surface-only cleaning from my property management team.
I was told by masonry professionals that an acid wash would probably be the only way to clean the rock. Not so! After purchasing my Sargent, I used the one-inch nylon brush and bar soap — the black soot ran down the rocks like a river.
What a fun discovery — beautiful, colorful rock underneath! No acid or chemicals needed and now maintenance is quick and easy after each ski season. My Sragent Steam is one of my best investments EVER!
Last year me and my husband, we bought a new house for our family and we have amazing fireplace in the living room. Now I want to do a deep spring cleaning and of course I want to clean the fireplace too. I think that this steam device will help me a lot in the cleaning. Thank you for sharing this article! You helped me a lot!
