We have run into a few minor situations with soot that gets into the home when ding fireplace cleanings. Most of the techs have 1 lowes type shop vac and use this for general service and also for natural gas/propane fireplace maintenance. Several of the guys also have Sid Harvey soot vacs but they are not used on fireplaces as the hoses are usually sooty and dragging these in seems counter productive when trying to keep carpeting and such clean. What do you guys use/suggest for cleaning minor sooted fireplaces and gas logs? What procedures do you have in place to protect the homes/customers and to protect yourself from liability? Thanks in advance. I was going to post this under the residential category where I think it will get many more views but I will see how it goes. Thanks in advance,
