Why shop with usFirebuilder app fireplace Bed & Breakfast TRV Deluxe

When shopping for a new fireplace or heating appliance, don’t head straight to a big box home improvement store; these stores often have limited selection – as well as employees who are, at best, difficult to track down and, at worst, give inaccurate advice. Instead, trust the fireplace experts at Clean Sweeps of Michigan to answer all your questions and help you find the right fireplace, stove, or new accessory for your home.

Because fireplaces and accessories are all we do, our staff is highly trained and knowledgeable about all of the products we sell. We take the time to sit down with our customers, assess their heating needs, and make recommendations based on their heating needs and style preferences.

Experience the convenience of our online store!

Our online fireplace store makes it quick and easy for our customers to shop for new heating appliances and accessories from the comfort of their own homes! Browse through our entire selection of fireplaces, stoves, inserts, and accessories from your computer or mobile device; whether you are just looking or preparing for your next purchase, our online store is a great resource for our customers.

Have you tried the Firebuilder app?

Shopping for a new fireplace but afraid of how it will look in your home? The Firebuilder app  lets you be the designer!

Start by choosing a make and model of a fireplace; there are options for gas, wood, pellets, and even electric fireplaces! Next, personalize your fireplace by choosing doors, fire back brick patterns, andirons, and more. Finish your design by uploading a picture of the room your new fireplace will go in. This gives you the ability to see exactly what your customized fireplace will look like in your home!

We do the installation, too!

You found the perfect new appliance or accessory – but now you need it installed! Trust the professional technicians at Clean Sweeps of Michigan to safely and correctly install your new appliance or accessory. Professional installation ensures your home’s new addition will operate safely and efficiently.

While we recommend professional installation for all fireplace products, it is especially important when installing gas stoves and inserts or switching fuel sources. A difference of just a few millimeters can cause leaks in delicate gas lines; professional installation keeps your fireplace burning efficiently and keeps your family safe from potential gas leaks.

Necessary Fireplace Accessories

When it comes to getting the most out of your fireplace, the right accessories can make all the difference! A good tool set can help you more effectively manage your fires while they are burning as well as clean up after they are finished. Likewise, good accessories can also help keep you and your family safer around your fireplace.

The following are some necessary fireplace accessories that can make operating your fireplace easier. Whether you’ve had one for years or still need to add it to your tool collection, considering trying out these fireplace tools this winter!

1. Fireplace screens

Fireplace screens are one of the easiest and most effective ways to make your fireplace safer. By keeping children and pets away from the fire – as well as keeping popping coals and embers off of your carpet – everyone can enjoy sitting in front of the fire without worry. There are hundreds of variations on fireplace screens running from the basic to the ornate; screens can be attached directly to the fireplace or hearth or can be freestanding.

If you have a glass fireplace, you may be required to use a fireplace screen. All glass front gas fireplaces built after January 1, 2015 are required by the American National Standards Institute to have a fireplace screen. If you have a glass fronted fireplace that was built before that date, you may still want to consider adding a screen; because the glass panels can become extremely hot when the fireplace is in use, they can create a serious burn hazard for anyone who touches them.

2. Wood holder

While this may seem like a no brainer, correct wood storage is important both inside and outside your home. An indoor wood holder can let you know when it’s time to head outside to grab more firewood. Good indoor wood storage should keep a small number of logs stacked neatly off of the floor; only bring the amount of wood you’ll immediately need inside to prevent dormant bugs from getting into your home.

How you store your firewood outside is even more important than your interior wood holder. Firewood should never be stacked directly on the ground to prevent the bottom layer from rotting; a metal or wood firewood holder can keep wood off the ground and dry. Likewise, avoid stacking wood too tightly or heaping it into a pile; doing this can prevent enough air from flowing through the woodpile and trap moisture inside.

3. Bellows

Although bellows are most commonly seen in period movies, they still have a place in your modern fireplace tool kit! Bellows work by pushing large amounts of air into the fire; the oxygen feeds the fire and can help it start roaring faster – and look cool while doing it.

4. Fire tools

The right fire tools can make a big difference in how you stoke and clean up after your fires. Fire tools often come in sets and include tongs, a poker, a shovel, a brush, and a storage stand. Because fire tools vary in weight, length, and size, you may want to head to the store to try them out before making a purchase.

Having the right fireplace accessories can make using your fireplace easier and more enjoyable. If you’re looking to add to your fireplace accessory collection, let the expert staff at Clean Sweeps of Michigan find the right fireplace tools for you!
