Chimneys should be safety features that help funnel sparks, fumes, and smoke out of the home. Yet, they can become the very cause of a dangerous house fire when left neglected for too long. Here’s how to know when to clean a chimney and how to do it yourself.
Chips, scratches, stains, and dullness can all leave the fixture looking less than its best. Ceramic or porcelain can be particularly tricky to paint, but it’s feasible with the proper preparation and materials. The new finish will look good and should last for a few years with regular use and careful cleaning.
Chipping, peeling paint may be desirable in small doses for the shabby chic look. But when it’s occurring on a wall rather than in a controlled way on a decorative item, it’s a problem rather than a decorative touch. Solve any underlying issues with the ceiling or walls before attempting to patch small areas of paint. Entire walls of chipping and peeling indicate a need for painting the whole room or even the whole home.
