I did some research
My fireplace in my home can get pretty hot. Not to mention, my fireplace also has ash and the flames sometimes getting a bit wild. I was trying to figure out a way to combat this. I did not want to make it so I could not use my fireplace. I looked into it, and I found out that I needed a fireplace screen! A fireplace screen is something that I should have got when I first had the fireplace installed 5 years ago. But, when I got the fireplace, I had no idea what was needed. The installation company that put in the fireplace never mentioned it. Also, I am no expert on fireplaces! But thanks to good old online research, I found that this was my problem. I went to a local hardware store to inquire about these screens for the fireplace. They told me for the specific fireplace I had, I needed to go to a store that dealt with just fireplaces. So, i did just that. I was shocked that there were all kinds of fireplace screens. They ranged from as cheap as 50 bucks, all the way up the thousands! Well, I am not a rich person. Who on earth would spend thousands on a screen for a fireplace anyhow? Maybe only those rich snots who have nothing better to do with their money. For me, the simple 50 dollar one will do just fine! I bought the cheap one, put it into my fireplace, and now there is no more issues with ash flying all over the place.
