To get the most enjoyable use out of your fireplace, it is recommended that it is cleaned after each use in order to reduce the amount of ash that collects post-fire. It is not uncommon to wonder, “Can I use my household upright or canister vacuum
to clean up the leftover ash?” The answer to that question is a resounding no and goes for shop vacuums as well. The ash remaining after a fire are burned to a size so small that they can slip through a vacuum filter and damage the motor, and the sweeper as a whole, beyond repair. Not only that, but the ash and embers can stay hot for days on end and could cause a fire to occur which is an entire other concern altogether.
In order to avoid the concern of a fire or replacing your vacuum cleaner

The fireplace vacuum is built using flame retardant materials which guarantees that there will be not fire damage to the machine and also helps to reassure the customer.
