Question
I've recently had my chimney cleaned, so why is smoke from my fire filling the room?

Answer
Hello Caroline, please take a look at this link to the CSIA web page
http://www.csia.org/homeowner-resources/how_your_chimney_really_works.aspx
here it will talk about why you are having this Smoking issue and ways that might help solve and/or use the fireplace with out this issue.
Also I would have a local Certified Chimney Sweep www.csia.org, (there you can look up by zip code to find one near you) with the Chimney Physics training, take a first hand look at what you have, they should be able to help.
Hope this helps
