- The chimenea has excellent combustion so will leave very little ash residue, what ash remains can be removed by carefully upending the chimenea so the ash falls out of the funnel.
- With use the glaze on your Chimalin AFC chimenea will change and discolour, and there will be blackening around the mouth or rim. The bigger the fires, the faster the finish will change.
- The stand is made from steel and will rust. To reduce the likelihood of rusting bring the chimenea and stand inside or protect with a Gardeco weatherproof cover. Ideally, bring inside for the winter. Stands can be repainted.
- Rust runs may mark flooring, slabs, and patios, so if you are worried about marking, protect your flooring.
- A discoloured chimenea on a rusty stand is still fit for purpose and can continue to be used.
- Frost damage may occur when clay chimeneas are left outside in the winter without protection or a cover. Clay is a porous material and absorbs water. If the chimenea is water sodden and the temperature drops to below zero degrees Celsius, the water inside the clay will freeze, expand and the clay can crack.
- Protect your chimenea with a weather proof cover, this keeps the chimenea dry and protected from wind driven dirt and insects, plus a cover will reduce frost damage, but best is to bring it inside out of the frost, for the winter. There is an optional cover available when purchasing this chimenea.
