Osburn wood stoves are top quality, durable and sturdy wood stoves. They are made for a lifetime of use and are covered by a warranty. These wood stoves come in different models, and each model has its own specifications. However, there are general rules to cleaning the Osburn wood stoves regardless of model.
Unlike central gas heating, wood stoves are economical, but they do require a bit more care and attention. In this article, we will show you how to properly clean Osburn wood stoves in order to get the best from them.
Cleaning and Painting Osburn Wood Stoves
Using a soft, clean, and damp cloth, clean the wood stove when it is cool. Clean it frequently to get rid of ash and soot. Avoid using an abrasive cleaner which could damage the surfaces of your wood stove.
It is also possible to repaint your wood stove with 650⁰C heat-resistant paint if the original paint has peeled or you just want a fresh coat of paint. To do this, simply use sandpaper to remove the original paint, and apply two coats of fresh paint.
Cleaning the Glass
Under normal circumstances, the glass remains clean. Glass cleaning may only be required if you are burning damp wood or having slow fires. In these cases, you may want to let the glass cool first and then use a ceramic glass cleaner applied with a damp cloth. Rinse off the cleaner for best results and dry the glass.
Osburn wood stoves do require a bit more cleaning and attention than most modern home heating sources, such as radiators, but the charm and character that they bring to a home makes the little bit of extra maintenance worthwhile.
