A Guide to Reviving Your outdoor BBQ's, Fire Pits and Chiminea's

Barbecuing and enjoying a cozy fire in your outdoor space can be one of life's greatest pleasures, but over time, your BBQ, chiminea, or outdoor fire pit can become weathered and worn out. Exposure to heat, rain, and other elements can cause damage to the surfaces, making them look old and unappealing.

However, restoring your outdoor fire feature is a simple and affordable solution with Andrews Aerosols range of heat-resistant aerosols. You can easily restore your BBQ, chiminea, or fire pit to its former glory and enjoy it for many more years to come.

Preparing for Restoration

Before you begin restoring your outdoor fire feature, it's important to prepare the surface properly. If your BBQ, fire pit or chiminea has exsessive surface rust or loose paint, its important to try and remove as much of this as possible. Wire brushing / scraping the metal will help revive this contamination. Mechanical abrasion is also a great preparation method although not essential. Following on from this, clean the surface of any dirt, grime, or debris. You can use a high-pressure washer or a scrub brush to remove any stubborn stains and dirt.

Once you have cleaned the surface, allow it to dry completely before applying any Andrews Aerosols products. It's essential to work with a dry surface to ensure the best adhesion of the aerosol paint.Wire Brushing Using our High Temp Aerosols

Now that your surface is clean and dry, you can begin using the heat resistant coatings. First, shake the can well and test spray on a small, inconspicuous area to ensure compatibility and to determine the right distance and pressure to achieve the desired finish.

Apply a thin coat of the heat-resistant aerosol paint in a sweeping motion. Wait for the first coat to dry completely before applying a second coat. Two thin coats are better than one thick coat, as they will give you a more even finish.

Once you have completed the painting process, allow the surface to dry and cure according to the instructions on the can. This will ensure that the paint is fully cured and ready for use.

Final Tips

To ensure your restored BBQ, chiminea, or outdoor fire pit lasts as long as possible, it's important to take care of it. Protect it from the elements, and avoid using abrasive cleaning products or tools that could damage the painted surface.

Regular maintenance, including cleaning and touch-ups when necessary, will help to keep your outdoor fire feature looking great and functioning well for years to come.
