New fireplace stains

Posted By: Todd sanders

I had a flagstone fireplace put in 2 months ago and have 2 questions. First, before we had our first fire the joints between the fire brick looked like it had a white substance effervessing from them. They used a special morter on the fire brick. I washed it down with water and a stiff brish but it just came back. Since I have had a fire it has appeared to stop. I would like to clean it up again but I am afraid if I use water it will return. The second question is how do I clean the black soot from having a fire off of the fire brick. I would like to clean it at the end of the year but again, I am afraid of the previous problem coming back. Please help. Thanks. Todd
