Why Do We Need Fireplace Screens?
In four-season countries, it is very common to have a fireplace inside the house. It is different from tropical countries which only have two seasons and there is no significant need to have a fireplace inside the house. Either way, fireplace screens are needed to give a decorative touch to our fireplace. There are also some other reasons why we need fireplace screens at our house.
The first reason is fireplace screens offer safety from flying sparks, ash, and smoke. It is very important to be secured from flying sparks because it may have a chance to burn the house down. It is beneficial for small children as they will not be able to reach it. People at home will not be disturbed from any ash and smoke from the fireplace. Hence, it will keep all the family members get warmth and far from any respiratory problems.
The second reason is fireplace screens provide efficiency. Different from wood-burning fireplace, there is no need to waste much time cleaning the soot if we apply screens on the fireplace. In addition, they are also easy to store. We are still able to just leave them in the place for the decorative matter even the winter season has passed.
