IMPORTANT INFORMATION... Please read before installing your enclosure
ACID HEARTH: Hydrochloric (muriatic) acid is often used by bu ilders to
clean excess mortar fro m new fireplaces. The fu mes from this acid are
highly corrosive and will damage the finish on your fireplace fixtures or other
nearby metal objects. This corrosive ac tion damages brass, steel and iron
and can last for many years if not neutralized. Consult your builder/mason for
correction.
The following suggestion, while not
correcting this condition.

a guaranteed remedy, may aid in
To neutralize, saturate the masonr y with ammonia water or a hearth
cleaner. Use care to avoid contact with adjacent carpet, floor etc.
Rinse thoroughly with clean, warm water;
Rinse several times with cool water to remove all ammonia;
Allow hearth to dry and seal with a hearth sealer.
Any acidic or caustic material us ed around your firepl ace can damage the
finish of your enclosure. This includes some mortars or sealants that may be
used to install and seal enclosures and some paints used on fireplace faces.
MR. FLAMETm Inc. ASSUMES NO RESPONSIBILITY FOR DAMAGES
CAUSED TO GLASS ENCLOSURES CAUSED BY “ACID HEARTH"
CREOSOTE FORMATION AND THE NEED FOR REMOVAL: Wood
never burns completely. Wood smoke is a combinat ion of unburned gases
and a fog of unburned tar-lik e liquids. When these ga ses come in contact
with a c ool surface they will condens e and form a nasty brown or black
substance which has an unpleasant, acrid odor. This is creosote. When
ignited, creosote makes an extremel y hot fire. The chimney connector and
chimney should be inspected at leas t twice monthly during the heating
season to determine if a creosote build up has occurred. If creosote has
accumulated, it should be removed to reduce the risk of a chimney fire.
HOW TO MINIMIZE CREOSOTE
Burn only seasoned hardwoods;
Do not allow the fire to smolder overnight;
Do not burn trash in your fireplace;
Check for buildup at l east two times per month during the burning
season. (You can check for creosote by opening the damper and looking into
the smoke chamber with a flashlight. Take a screwdriver and scratch through
the buildup to the masonry. If the buildup is more than 1/4", a clean-up is
due. If the chimney is a factory built metal ty pe, it should be c leaned
after 1/8" buildup. The smoke chamber is where the fire starts, not the top of
the chimney.)

ASH DISPOSAL: Ash es should be placed in a metal container with a tightfitting lid. The c losed container of ashes should be placed on a
well away from all combustible
noncombustible floor or on the ground,
materials, pending final disposal. If the ashes are disposed of by burial in soil

CARE AND CLEANING:
WARNING - DO NOT CLEAN GLASS WHEN HOT OR BREAKAGE MAY
OCCUR.
1.
The glass in your gl ass enclosure is s afety tempered. It may be
broken by contact with bur ning wood or spilled liqui ds, by cleaning the
glass with a wet cloth or by too large a fire. Broken glass or discolored trim
is usually a resul t of too large a
fire or contact with burning wood.
Tempered glass, if broken, will c rumble into small pieces less than 1/2"
square. lf glas s breaks into lar ger pieces, it has been detem pered by too
large a fire. Replace all glass y ou suspect has been detempered. Replace
with tempered glass only.
2.
Do not use ammonia- based glass cleaner to clean the glass or the
enclosure as these t ypes of cleaner s may damage the finish
of your
enclosure. Minor finish scratches can be removed by applying lemon oil.
GENERAL SAFEGUARDS
• Burning
trash, scraps
(construction) or rail road ties is not
recommended for use with thi s enclosure. Intense heat can c ause loss
of temper in glass and the fumes from this can create health hazards.
• Intense heat such as hot ashes, coals, or logs coming in contact wit
h
the back of the enclosure will cause t
arnishing or discoloration to the
finish.
