Outdoor Fire Pit Maintenance

Even though Summer is coming to an end, you can still enjoy the warmth and beauty of an outdoor fire pit. They are the perfect patio furniture piece for entertaining in the Fall. However, to keep your fire pit looking its best it should be maintained on a regular basis. We have provided five tips on how to maintain your outdoor fire pit below:

1. Add a Tray
A tray cover for your fire pit burner is recommended so that it can keep it protected from rain and dirt. Shielding your burner from these elements is an easy way to extend the life of your patio fire pit. Adding a tray is also a great way to add more surface area to your fire pit table when not in use. This means that it can be used as a coffee table to serve drinks and appetizers to your friends and family.

2. Covers
Patio furniture protective covers are the best purchase you can make to help maintain your outdoor fire pit. Rain, snow, ice, and the sun can all take a heavy toll on a fіrе pit if not covered properly. Covers are not only weather resistant, but will help in reducing the amount of cleaning that is necessary. They are available in different shapes and sizes so you will always find one that suits your needs. Make sure to only cover your fire pit when it is fully cooled after use.

3. Keep Fire Glass and Burners Clean
Fire pits using fire glass are much easier to clean than wood burning fire pits because there is no production of messy ashes. They are easy to use and relatively low maintenance. It is still important that the burner is cleaned regularly аѕ insect nests аnd debris саn саuѕе blockages.

4. Location
It is important that you find the right spot for your fire pit not only to make your outdoor space look its best but also to provide the least amount of maintenance. Some wind protection is recommended to keep your flames in full force, although a wind barrier can also help with the debris. For safety and easier cleanup, overhead trees and branches should be regularly pruned and the area around the fire pit should be kept clear of any debris.

5. Check Hardware
Lastly, to properly maintain your outdoor fire pit you should always check all the hardware before its first use of the season. This means that you should check all fasteners, propane connections, gas flow, and fuel lines. Also as mentioned above make sure that the burners are clean as this could block gas flow. All these connections should be checked frequently if your fire pit is being used on a regular basis.
