Rustic Fireplace Mantels and How to Clean Them

Rustic Fireplace Mantels and How to Clean ThemA rustic fireplace mantel can give your room a down-to-earth feeling that is more reminiscent of the great outdoors. This style of mantel can give your room a more homey feeling than other styles. SoCal Fireplace Mantels offers a large selection of rustic fireplace mantels in Orange County.

Rustic fireplace mantels frequently place the emphasis on the materials used, typically natural stone or even cast stone. However, some rustic fireplace mantels may have carved designs inspired by nature as well. It is important that you keep your rustic fireplace mantel clean and well maintained to prevent stains, damage, and to keep dirt from getting embedded into the natural grain or any detail work.

Frequent dusting can help to reduce the amount of dirt and dust that gets embedded into the mantel. Do not just rub with a rag or cloth because this causes dirt to be forced into small crevices, making the mantel appear darker and dirty, thus requiring more extensive cleaning. Choose a type of duster that is designed to attract dust to keep your mantel clean.

When a more extensive cleaning is in order, you may use a cloth dampened with a gentle solution and wipe carefully. Use a clean damp cloth to rinse. Allow to dry thoroughly. To avoid damage or staining, do not over-soak your cleaning or rinsing rag.

For rustic fireplace mantels or many other types of fireplace surrounds in Orange County, SoCal Fireplace Mantels has many designs to choose from, with custom options available.
