A rattan table with fire pit is an ideal solution for homeowners looking for a clean, comfortable and convenient way to upgrade their outdoor recreation areas. Gas-fueled rattan fire pit tables don't require as much maintenance as wood-fueled units, but it's still important to check and clean them regularly. After all, the secret to keeping a fire pit table looking and functioning well is maintenance. Basic fire pit table maintenance and cleaning is not difficult. With a few helpful tips and maintenance, it's easy to make sure it stays in good condition for many years to come.
Practical steps for cleaning the fire pit table:
Here are practical steps for cleaning your fire pit table. But before you start, make sure the fire pit table has cooled completely.
Extinguish the Fire Safely
Do not douse a fire with water as this would bring about a sudden change in temperature that can damage the fire pit and deteriorate its metallic components. Allow the fire to die and wait for the temperature of the fire pit table to cool gradually before attempting to clean it. Shut up the valves on the propane gas supply line to your rattan table with fire pit so that you can easily disconnect the gas tank. Make sure this is done very carefully to avoid gas leakage and waste during the disconnection process.
Remove fire glass
Use gloves during this step. In case the fireproof glass may have some sharp edges. Using a stainless steel mesh strainer and bucket, clean the fireproof glass with a 50/50 solution of water and vinegar. Gently submerge the strainer in the bucket of solution and gently shake the rock as it is submerged. After cleaning, remember to spread the fire glass out again to air dry.
Inspect pans and burners
When you find the damage caused by winter humidity, you can clean it by the following methods.
Cleaning tarnish: A stainless steel pan can be freshened up by liberally applying vinegar and allowing it to sit for at least 10 minutes, and then rubbing with a soft cloth.
Cleaning discoloration: High heat can often lead to areas of discoloration. To clean this, cover the surface liberally with vinegar as above, and then sprinkle with baking soda forming a paste. Allow it to sit for 15 minutes and rub with a soft cloth. If you need a bit more scrubbing power than that, you can use a non-metal scouring pad.
Never use steel wool or a steel brush on your stainless steel pan. It will scratch the surface causing damage that can eventually lead to rust.
Check hoses and fittings
Inspect hoses for damage that may have occurred over the winter due to temperature fluctuations or gnawing rodents. If you are using propane, we recommend fully inspecting and cleaning the air mixer, as spiders love to make nests in this device. The best way to do this is to unscrew the mixer from the tank hose and from the burner. Removing the device gives you full access to see if there are any insects in your residence. It also makes it much easier to clean the holes of the mixer. This can be done by washing the mixer in warm, soapy water or running a toothpick through each hole.
Cleaning the housing of fire pit table
Have a bucket of mild soap handy and a soft piece of cloth. Dampen the cloth in the water and wipe the surface of the rattan furniture with fire pit thoroughly. Also, don’t forget to run it along the edges of the gas pipe for a thorough job. Ensure that the cloth is damp and not dripping water to avoid damaging the unit in the cleaning process.
Allow it to air before assembling
Once you’re done cleaning up the surface of your rattan garden set with fire pit, allow it some time to air. It allows you to see any area still harboring stains and gives the damp areas sufficient time to dry off. After this, you can then reassemble the unit for the next use. Check to ensure that all valves are properly connected and the gas can flow with ease to ignite the fire pit burner.
Maintenance and preventive measures:
The frequency of cleaning your rattan gas fire pit table can vary depending on the situation, but you can do a thorough maintenance routine either annually or twice a year. Here is rattan garden furniture with fire pit maintenance tips.
Check your gas lines regularly: Make sure you turn off the gas supply when not in use and check the gas lines regularly for leaks. A simple test is to apply a soapy water solution to the line, turn on the gas and observe for bubbles. Any leaks must be repaired before using the table. If you smell gas, do not operate it!
Replace rusty or faulty parts: As soon as you notice that a part of the rattan fire pit table unit is not working as efficiently as it once did, replace them.
Always refer to your installation manual: Do not perform maintenance without a reference manual as a guide. It will help you save more time during maintenance, and you will also find important details about your propane gas fire pit table.
Never burn anything but gas: Keep all plastics away from sources of ignition and any hot surfaces. Melted plastic not only creates a slimy paste that is extremely difficult to remove, it also produces toxic fumes!
Keep it dry:Store your fire pit table in a dry, sheltered area and purchase a fire pit cover to protect it from inclement weather. Covers can also help reduce the amount of cleaning necessary.
The best way to ensure continued use of your rattan fire pit table is to make sure that the unit is continually cleaned and maintained. By following these tips, you will keep your fire pit table in top condition, and you will also help it to have many enjoyable nights.
