Sometimes in the winter there is nothing better than curling up next to a fireplace with some hot chocolate. The biggest downside of doing this is the fact that you actually need to own and maintain a fireplace. I’ve dealt with these in the past, and they can be messy and annoying to clean. I mean, those ashes have to go somewhere, right? Disposing of them usually means scooping them out with a tiny shovel into a bucket. Then you take the bucket outside somewhere. Wouldn’t it be nice if you could just use a vacuum?
The trouble with using a vacuum to clean up cold ashes is that you still get a lot of dust that kicks up into the air, and can potentially harm the device’s motor. What you need is this specially-designed Fireplace HEPA Vacuum. This bad-boy is equipped with a HEPA filter. The HEPA filter stops any and all ash from even getting to the sensitive parts of the vacuum, and most importantly, from getting out into the air you breathe. Other notable features include a 5′ fire-retardant aluminum hose and a removable 5 gallon fire-resistant steel tank. I think I would pay $150 not to have to mess with cleaning out a fireplace the old-fashioned way.
