A fireplace creates nice ambiance, but the mess left behind can be a nuisance to clean; the fine, light ash can fly all over the room if you’re not careful how you remove it. To address this problem the Love-less Ash Company designed the Cougar Model MU405 Ash Vacuum — it’ll remove warm to cold ash from wood stoves, pellet stoves, fireplaces, and barbecues, and do it quietly.
To prevent damage to the vacuum by warm coals or embers, Love-less makes the vacuum’s 5′ hose flame-retardant and the primary filter fire-retardant. The patented double-filter system keeps the ash in the vacuum and out of the air.
This vacuum may not be for everyone, but if you’ve every had to clean ash from your furniture after getting it all over the room you might find the $250 price tag worth it.
