What is fireplace ash?

Fireplace ash is generated as a natural byproduct of burning wood. Especially with a long burning fire with several large logs, you can be left with a large quantity of ash in your fireplace. For cleanliness and safety, it's important to remove the buildup of fireplace ash. You can do something as simple as having an ash bucket next to your fireplace to scoop out the extra ashes periodically. Another option is to have an ash vacuum to clean out all the ashes. I'll share a link to a nice ash bucket and fireplace vacuum below.
