Chimney & Fireplaces/smoking fireplace


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

Hello Caroline, please take a look at this link to the CSIA web page
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, (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
