People around the world have been fascinated with fire ever since we discovered it a very long time ago. We have a natural attraction to and yet a fear of fire. It gives off the warmth we need, makes food much more palatable for people and so much more. Where would we even be without fire? However, fire can also destroy, burn out of control and hurt people in no time flat. Therefore, the number one thing to remember when dealing with fire of any kind, including contained fire like that in a chiminea, is safety. That is why there are chiminea accessories for safety that will help to protect you, your home and those you love.
A fire resistant fireplace pad is the most important safety accessory for any and all chimineas. These pads are available in round and half-round shapes. They can be placed under your chiminea to catch sparks, embers and hot ash that could inadvertently fall out and damage your patio or deck flooring. Even if the fire gets a little larger than it should, the fireplace pad will keep the worst from happening. The pads also come equipped with a no slip grip to keep them firmly in place so that no one ever gets hurt because they’ve shifted. These fire-resistant pads are also great insurance in case you happen to have someone who is a little clumsy tending to your chiminea, and that kind of thing does happen occasionally. There is no better way to ensure the protection of your outdoor area from unnecessary burn damage than with a fire-resistant fireplace pad.
Log grabbers are another useful chiminea accessory to keep you, your family and your home safe. This tool is used for picking up logs that can be even up to 8 inches in thickness to then place in the fire. The 3-foot long device keeps you safely at a good distance from the fire when you are adding another log to it. Use a log grabber every time you add wood to your chiminea and be sure that everyone else who helps with tending the fire does the same thing. Safety is priority number 1 at all times, especially when dealing with fire.
For those people lucky enough to have a chiminea in their yard, it means countless hours of relaxation, fun and laughter around a roaring fire that simply can’t be beat. It means giggling children roasting marshmallows and hotdogs over the fire. It means singing silly campfire songs or even singing along badly off-key with the friend who sometimes brings his guitar. It means great conversations with friends and family, as we let down our defenses in the ambiance of the fire. It means snuggling up just the two of you and talking about everything and nothing as the embers die down, before you go to bed. Be safe and keep your home and other people you love safe by wisely using chiminea accessories for safety every time you build a fire.
