The Quintessential Fall Fireplace Maintenance Tip
Whether you have a wood-burning hearth or a gas fireplace, the secret of fall fireplace maintenance is to schedule an inspection and, if needed, a chimney cleaning. An annual inspection is an essential step in fireplace safety.
The biggest concern with wood-burning fireplaces is the buildup of highly flammable creosote. Creosote is the leading cause of chimney fires. Did you know that the vast majority of chimney fires cause structural damage? This will usually affect the chimney flue, which must be intact. Chimney experts can let you know when the flue should be scrutinized from top to bottom with special video equipment.
Gas fireplaces provide the utmost in convenience, but it’s important to remember that annual inspections and cleanings are crucial for your safety. What can go wrong with gas fireplaces? It’s common for burners to become clogged. If a gas fireplace is not adequately maintained or ventilated, incomplete combustion can be the result, which can expose your household to carbon monoxide poisoning. Those are just two of several problems that are common with gas fireplaces.
Go for Stunning Fall Fireplace Décor
Fall fireplace decorations can please whether they are simple or elaborate. We found a modern look that is worth talking about. You will love this if you prefer a toned-down presentation of fall colors, which equates to true elegance. Also, it focuses on decorating a fireplace over which a large screen TV takes up the mantel space.
Begin with a collection of at least 10 medium heirloom pumpkins in subtle orange, white, and neutral wheat tones. Add a few smaller pumpkins in similar shades. These are centered on both sides of the hearth floor with green potted plants behind them. And, closest to the fireplace, place wheat bundles elevated on pedestals so that they rise above the greenery and the pumpkin pile in front.
Then, on the hearth screen, place a wheat wreath. This unites the wheat displayed on both sides. The overall look is cohesive, but one more component beautifully ties in the mantelpiece. Place a magnolia leaf garland across the mantel and down each side.

Find just the right style for your home this season:
- Display luxury with metallic accents such as copper vases filled with fall flowers, metallic candle holders, and brass fireplace tools.
- Embrace minimalism by opting for sleek fall fireplace décor. Go with a monochromatic color scheme in muted tones of white or gray. Achieve a clean, uncluttered, and tranquil look by placing a few well-chosen items beside ceramic pumpkins or a simple wreath that evokes a fall theme.
- Hearth hygge is a Danish notion of creating coziness with the fireplace as the centerpiece. Faux fur throws, cushy cushions, natural wood logs, and fairy lights are perfect for creating a tranquil and serene environment.
