How much maintenance should I expect from my fireplace?

Wood is the messiest of fireplace or stove fuel types. Propane gas fireplaces with decorative burner media eliminate ash clean up, but you still have some soot or carbon deposited from the gas being burned. Natural gas fireplaces are the cleanest and are virtually zero maintenance.
