You need to have a regular gas appliance check and carry out maintenance for safety reasons. This should be done on an annual basis. You can clean the glass door on your gas stove or fireplace every couple of months to prevent sticky deposits from accumulating. However, only do this with a special glass cleaner.
Gas fire appliances are usually low in maintenance but you must still get a certified gas technician to check your appliance on an annual basis. You can get a build-up of deposits that can lead to a chimney fire. Also, a specialist will be able to check for any gas leaks or venting problems. So, book an annual inspection with a certified chimney technician. These checks are relatively inexpensive and you’ll then have the peace of mind that everything is operating as it should.
