Maintain the fireplace and the flues regularly. In residential buildings, flues should be swept once a year, and they should be swept at least every three years in holiday homes.
Always clean the ashes away from the grate before heating. Remove the ashes before the ash box is full. Clean dust and debris from the fireplace using a soft brush or by vacuuming it carefully using a brush attachment.
Wipe down the surface stones with a damp cloth and an ordinary cleaning agent. The glass on the door can be cleaned using glass cleaning agents, and the cooker's ceramic surface can be cleaned using detergent or fine ash and damp kitchen paper.
