Allocating it to heap and deleting it, letting it go out of scope. I don't see the point in the question, what exactly do you want to achieve? Please explain better.

It is done automatically by SFML's classes. You need not worry about it, unless you manage memory manually (which you should not do).

Search for RAII to understand the concept of automatic resource management in C++.
