Do I Need to Clean my Bioethanol Fireplace?

The quick, easy, and simple answer is: Yes, you should clean your bioethanol fireplace. A bio fire does require some maintenance and cleaning every once in a while if you wish to have a charming and well-functioning fireplace for many years to come. However, a bio fuel fire is actually extremely easy to maintain and it does not require a lot of cleaning (unless it is constantly burning).

As a bioethanol fire does not emit soot nor ash means that the maintenance decreases significantly compared to the traditional fireplace. However, black spots can appear on the top and backplate of the bio fireplace due to contact with the flames. We recommend cleaning those spots with a humid cloth from time to time so the plates are clean and appear new and elegant.
