To do this, wait until the stove is completely cool, and then remove all of the excess ash. Finer particles can be vacuumed up. Next, the firebricks should be checked using a soft brush. Any that are broken or damage need to be replaced, but for smaller cracks, you can use fire cement to repair them.   Likewise, the door glass of your woodburner needs to be checked for any signs of damage. If the glass has cracked, it will need replacing, but if not, go ahead and clean thoroughly by removing it from the door and cleaning with an appropriate glass cleaner. It’s important to remember that different kinds of glass need different cleaning products – check which one is appropriate for your stove or fire by contacting us if you are unsure.
