JH Yoder Customer Testimonial

Absolutely love the mantel. Customer service and mantel piece was exactly what we were looking for.  Great to deal with, shipped promptly, packaging and cut out was perfect .  We get so many compliments on it.  We completed the wall with airstone brick, and it just completes and compliments the look we were going for.  Our finish piece will be the fireplace insert. Just waiting and researching what we want.

Thank you.

Cleaning and Care Tips for Your Wood Fireplace Mantel

Want to make sure your hand-hewn wood mantelpiece retains its rustic appearance and remains a centerpiece in your home for many years to come? A little care and cleaning can go a long way! Today we’ll look at a few simple maintenance tips for your wood mantel.

Declutter your mantel periodically.

Does your mantel tend to accumulate a lot of knick knacks and household items? A fireplace mantel can serve as a nice display area, but excessive clutter will attract dust and detract from the mantel’s appearance. Try to limit the amount of clutter on your mantel to make it easier to clean and maintain.

Dust your mantel once a week.

Dust is bound to build up on your mantel sooner or later, particularly if you use your fireplace regularly. Dust it once a week to keep it clean and allow the natural finish to shine through. You can use a basic duster or furniture polish to keep dust to a minimum.

Deep clean your mantel as necessary.

Every now and then, the smoke and soot from your fireplace will force you to treat your mantel to a good thorough cleaning. Fortunately, it’s simple enough to clean and protect your mantel with an oil-based wood cleaner.
