How to store firewood correctly at home

Contenidos

Firewood is your greatest ally in winter if you have a fireplace or stove in your home. In addition to giving us warmth in winter, and good barbecues with friends and family in summer, it also saves us on our electricity bills. Therefore, we must know how to protect and maintain it properly.

An important part of this is knowing how to store firewood correctly, which we tell you about in this article!

Keys and tips for storing firewood correctly

Storing firewood is not just about stacking logs on top of each other and placing them anywhere where they won’t get in the way. Firewood is the source of your fireplace or stove and you have to know how to do it to protect it and make it last over time.

  • You should store firewood in a completely dry area, avoiding damp places or places that get wet in case of rain. Firewood must have less than 20% humidity and must have dried for at least 2 years to work properly. Find out what type of firewood is best for your fireplace by clicking here.
  • Store the firewood respecting the passage of air. Firewood must be aired to ensure proper drying.
  • Be careful not to cover the firewood completely. It is fine to cover the firewood with a tarpaulin or a woodshed, but we must know that if we cover it completely we will be preventing it from ventilating properly.
  • The area or place where you store the firewood should be leveled for greater safety. We will achieve that the firewood is stable and the logs do not roll out.

Important tips to keep in mind at home

When storing firewood, whether it is inside or outside your home, there are some things to keep in mind:

  • If you have children or pets, you must be especially careful. They should not play with firewood.
  • Use insecticide or natural fungicide. Spray the firewood from time to time and avoid the appearance of fungi and insects.
  • If you need to cover the firewood, use a plastic sheet. You should leave the sides, back and front uncovered.
  • Stack the firewood close together.

Decorative accessories

Perhaps you are storing firewood outdoors or want to keep it in a place where it will not be seen. You can use accessories such as baskets or designer bags to store several logs that can serve you for 1 or 2 days.

With this type of accessories, you will give a special and rustic touch to the room without having to stack all the firewood in the same place.
