Rustic timbers gas logs stained our masonry fireplace

threeapplesDecember 19, 2013

Our masonry fireplace was fitted with Rustic Timber gas logs today. One of the logs on the top has blackened drammatically and the black areas are sort of peeling off. Directly behind this is a black streak that has stained the back of our firebrick fireplace. Is this normal? How can I clean the black streak off the fire brick?

That's normal. Expecting firebrick in a fireplace to stay clean is not realistic; It will develop even more soot as your use of the log set continues. Parts of the gas logs themselves will become black as well - this too is normal.
