The glass on your gas fireplace is truly the window into the comfort and flickering flames that your Fireplace offers you daily. So this is why it’s extra essential to regularly clean your fireplace glass. Wondering what the best way to do that is? We’ve for you covered below.
Q: What is the best way to handle the glass on my Fireplace?
A: Always securely remove the window and the barrier screen using the instructions provided in your fireplace manual. Ensure that you DO NOT USE Windex or ammonia-based cleaners to clean the window.
Q: What type of cleaner should I use for my fireplace glass?
A: Never use an abrasive cleaner on the ceramic glass. Any abrasion of the surface has the immediate effect of compromising the strength of the glass. An emulsion-type cleaner is recommended.
Use a soft, damp cloth to apply the cleaner. Dry the glass with a soft, dry, preferably cotton cloth. Most paper towels and synthetic materials are abrasive to ceramic glass and should be avoided.
Some options include Polish Plus by Kelkem, Cook Top Clean Creme by Elco, and White Off by Rutland.
Q: What if my glass needs to be replaced?

Q: How Often Should I Clean My Fireplace Glass?
A: Clean the glass regularly as soon as you notice the buildup (white film). If the film is left for a more extended period of time, it will etch into the glass. It is then much harder, if not impossible, to remove.
