    The holidays are over and now we are faced with another couple months of winter.  Brighten your space by keeping the fireplace smelling great all heating season long.  Both smart, preventative care and a few quality products can add an aromatic touch to your space without the use of over-concentrated, smelly candles.   

    As the long winter season continues, here are some ways to keep your fireplace smelling great:Kettle;e on Stove

    Preventative Care
    While most smelly chimney issues are easily fixed, it could also be a sign of something more concerning that may need professional attention.  Below are some basic maintenance and repair tips for the preventative care of your unit.

    • Creosote and soot both emit odors into the space.  Have the chimney cleaned yearly by a professional to remove this buildup before it starts stinking up your home.
    • A smelly chimney could also be a sign that your unit is experiencing negative air pressure.  Try closing the damper when the fireplace is not in use and having a chimney sweep check that the damper is also properly sealed.

    Products to Use

    • Stove Deodorant – Stove deodorants are a great way to easily eliminate odors for a long period of time.  Most products such as Rutland’s First Rain Deodorant just require the user to raise the wick, place it in the firebox, and enjoy 30-90 days of odor-free air!
    • Stove Scents – Stove scents allow you to enjoy a lovely aromatic smell that can be used on an as-needed basis.  These products often come in a number of scents to match your unique mood and preference.  They can also be combined with ScentStones on gas, oil, or pellet stoves but are best suited for use with kettles.  Just a few drops in the kettle can completely brighten the space with a lovely aroma.
    • Seasoned Hardwood – The right fuel for wood-burning fireplaces and wood stoves can make a huge difference in which smells are emitted from your unit.  Invest in quality, seasoned hardwood for not only a great-smelling fire but a safe one too.
