For the cleaning of a painted fire screen, you have to mix a gallon of warm water with half a cup of vinegar and a teaspoon of ammonia. Then dipping a cloth into the solution, just wipe both the sides of the sides of the fire screen. Finally rinse with a cloth dipped in warm and clear water.
Carefully allow the extinguishing of the embers at the fireplace for a minimum time period of 12 hours and only then dust or vacuum the hearth place to prevent the buildup of soot. This will cut down the risks of a house fire.
